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.

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

Hansen (7443) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2010
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.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 6, 2010
Medium offwhite coarseish head doesn’t last. Light coppery body. Strawy sugary grainy aroma with perfumy solvent and toffee notes. Dry-sweetish alcoholic grainy taste with banana and earth notes. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Mid-to-full body. No aftertaste, just fades out very quickly. Undrinkable. (0.66l bottle, wine monopoly.)

Bottle from jmgreenuk. Pity it’s not a Bangladesh tick. Thick white head. Clear golden pour. A sweet lager. Not great

gunnar (6346) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2012
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.

ogivlado (6288) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 25, 2002
Bottled(660ml). -average lager, good with kebab, gold color, refreshing if you drink fast because it is avaliable only in 660ml bottle

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...
