2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle sample @ Leuven Beer Innovation 2015, shared with the RB Belgian crew. Thanks Tderoeck for sharing.
Cuivrée, col blanc.
Arôme malté assez plaisant avec un petit bouquet caramel et pâle en rétro. Malt houblonné est léger et fleuri-citronné.
Palais malt cara, pâle, petite note biscuitée tirant vers qcq esters. Houblonné modéré ajoutant une balance citronnée. Il y a pire comme bière ou alors l’effet des bonnes bières de ce festival fait passer cette pale lager pour mieux qu’elle ne goûte.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. High fluffy and long lasting white head leaivng nice long lacings. Clear golden body. Mild sweet malty hay aroma. Very sweet malty corn flavor with little hops bitterness. Low carbonation and a long sweet aftertaste. Good looking but too sweet. Too boring.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow and clear. Has a white head, mostly diminishing. Faint malty aroma, ok aroma. Flavor is a bit unpleasent, odd maltyness, or is the hop? watery texture.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
5.2% 660ml bottle. Sweet, unsubtly potent booziness. All the adjuncty, ricey softness you’d expect, but some Pils-like bitterness in the ’finish’. Washes down a Zal Mass with roasted chillies inoffensively enough.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
24/V/15 - 33cl bottle @ train ride to LIBF (Leuven) - BB: 19/V/15 (2015-683) Thanks to jc1762 for the bottle!
Note: alas no country tick, Jon! :p
Clear orange beer, small creamy off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, bit malty, fruity, sugar, banana. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: lots of banana, bit yeasty, sweet touch, more banana, citrus. Aftertaste: sweet, banana, yeast, slightly bitter, more banana. You would think they used Westmalle yeast to brew this beer. Very weird...

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
660 ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours clear golden with a big frothy off-white head. Aroma of sunstruck hops, boiled corn. Taste is sweet perfume, cloying honey, just bad all over. Very harsh and stale ending.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I thought I'd bagged an elusive Bangladeshi beer until I came to post the rating to the site. Doh! Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised by the beer, which is a reasonable, if unexciting golden lager. Minimal aroma, some soft hops on the palate and a soft, fresh finish. Just a hint of sweetness. It is far better than some of its rivals and has a bit more alcohol. For once, I wasn't drinking this with a curry, but I reckon this would go down just fine with Asian food. 330ml bottled (best before November 2003) from beersofeurope.co.uk

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle@Taj Mahal, Streatham, London - golden pour with large puffy white head. Aroma and taste is crisp sweet grainy malts, corn, light grassy. Beer very average, (unlike the food I was eating at the time that was gorgeous)
