Hendo (110) - Sint Anthonis, - MAY 11, 2006
Bottled version. Not a bad beer at all, a little sweet perhaps. A bit of hops going on there. Enjoyable but nothing overly special.

markschiedon (194) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Drinking from a 30 cl bottle. The overwhelming bouquet in the aroma the label states, have I not found. Just a bit hop. The clear yellow beer has a small white head. A fresh taste, like you’re drinking spring water. Medium carbonated.

VincentKabel (195) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2014
Golden coloured beer with a firm white head. Medium carbonation. Malts, slightly hoppy and grainy are the tastes that dominate this beer. It’s a bit boring, but pretty drinkable.

FatPhil (9263) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 23, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Bland pale lager aroma. Pale, brief head. Sweet bland taste. Useless brew. Not even refreshing. Alfy Sucky Dortmunder is what it should be called. Did cover the alcohol quite well, I guess.

Alengrin (1023) - BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2014
Well-known Dutch lager, like the other Alfas brewed with their own spring water. Relatively stable, snow white head on a pure golden coloured, cristal clear beer; nose gets floral Saaz hops, a bit of hay, grains and sweetish malts, taste malty, sweetish in onset, towards the end mildly hoppy, and what surprised me the most, was the fact that in spite of it being bottom-fermented, pale and a lager, the alcohol was hardly noticeable. I am a bit surprised by the negative reviews here, but I had it over ten years ago and it may have declined in quality since then, so I guess it’s time to re-rate it. alcohol ondanks de hoge dosis, de ondergisting en de bleke kleur amper merkbaar, zelfs niet in de afdronk

Marduk (2637) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 13, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear amber color. Tiny to almost no head. Sour, malty, minerals, sweet, cereals in aroma. Sweet, malty taste. Horrible brew.

BobEvers (275) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2014
Fles30cl. Kleur goudgeel. Weinig schuim. Geur mout. Smaak redelijk fris en sterk pils.

MaartenRF10 (1584) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2014
Helder goud bier met inzakkende witte kraag. Geur zoet. Smaak ook zoet, moutig. Net een goedkoop sterk pils.

Aroma of malts, hay, straw. Flavour is malty sweetness, a bit too sweet for my taste. Drinkable but boring.
