Dry Hopped Christoffel Nobel

I'll be writing a some tasting notes about a couple of the beers I tried in Amsterdam. This is the first.

Some interesting flavors reminds me a bit of the Winter Solstice because of the fresh almost peppermint qualities. Although the fact that it's called "Christoffel," and a green and red label might also be contributing to the subconscious idea of a Christmas seasonal. I taste some english hop stylings down in there somewhere, but it seems a little too watery and the yeast adds a fruity quality that when combined with the mintyness makes this beer entirely too light bodied.

Dry Hopped Christoffel Nobel: ** 1/2
