0.33 l bottle from 'OnderNulPuntVijf' as '3 Horses Malta', best before April 2023. Clear, very dark ruby with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, minimally fruity aroma of burnt sugar, bread crust, caramel and traces of raisins. Fairly sweet, malty, minimally fruity taste of caramel, burnt sugar, some bread crust and hints of raisins, followed by a short, sticky sweet, minimally bitter finish. Thin to medium body, gently effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Typical Malztrunk, not a bad one.

Nice Dutch web shop with a high quality selection of beers from all over Europe with a small focus on Dutch beers, of course. Pricing is fine compared by Dutch standards, delivery is super quick. The only real downside is the navigation as you have to browse the beers by styles with no possibility to show all of them at once. Definitely worth trying out!

Interesting Dutch web shop, affiliated with a physical liquor store near Eindhoven. The selection ranges from well-known Dutch to local beers, but they also stock an astonishingly large assortment of international craft beer. Paying is only possible via credit card (or iDeal, more or less available to people living in the Netherlands only). Communication is very friendly, shipping is super quick, packaging is average (cardboard box for bottles, no additional filling material used). Would definitely order again, I hope they increase the number of paying options in the future.

0.33 l bottle from 'OnderNulPuntVijf', best before June 2022. Hazy, pale yellow, no head. Sweetish, rather fruity aroma of mango and some grains. Slightly sweet, minimally sourish, rather fruity taste of mango, grains and traces of citrus, followed by a short, minimally tart, slightly grainy finish. Thin body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Alright!

0.5 l bottle from 'Craftbeer-Shop.com', best before September 2021. Slightly hazy, golden with a thin, frothy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, gently fruity-floral aroma of elderflower, grains and some wort. Rather sweet, minimally malty, rather floral and a bit fruity taste of lots of elderflower, some grains, a touch of wort and traces of lime, followed by a short, minimally bitter, sweetish-floral finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Pleasant beverage, quite sweet but I like the elderflower flavours.

Interesting, rather large web shop with craft beer from many different countries, European and overseas, but also with a nice local selection of rather unknown Dutch and especially Nijmegen-based breweries/brewers. I found lots of new brewery ticks as well as state and county ticks. Prices are average for Dutch shops, delivery is very quick, packaging is better than at most other web shops I know. Recommended.
