TrefwoordPunk (983) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear amber with a big pinkish white head and an aroma of toffee, cream, sweet malts and corn. The taste is medium sweet with low carbonation and some slight bitterness in the finish.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2016
25cl bb01/2017, BL sampler. Bref: does for UK pale ale, Belgian-style, what Stella and Jupiler did for lager, Belgian-style: adjunct sugars and cardboard. Sweet wet cardboard in aroma substitute malt caramels, a touch of rain-drenched labrador and the faintest whiff of black tea. Mainly faint diluted saturated sugars in taste, then some UK-ish tealeaf bitters coming through to add the only touch of peppery character. Dryish palate, short black tealeaf finish. Basic Ersatz pale ale for a beautifully simple, bygone era when this was called "pel el"...

BenL8 (73) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 29, 2016
Very sweet with some Belgian flavours finishing in a mild lageresque way. Not really a pale ale, not really any discernible style... Sweet sugar water beer.

ruigo (2384) - PORTUGAL - MAR 29, 2016
25cl bottle. Pours an amber colour with an thin off-white head. Aroma is yeasty, caramel and grassy. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is light bitter. Overall, a bit unbalanced brew with strange notes in the aroma and flavour. Drinkable though.

dynamiteninja (1827) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle. Medium white head. Amber body. English malt, wheat, Belgian yeast, iron, beef, Belgian hops, pine resin. Sweet. Oily and dirty mouthfeel. Dry finish. Well carbonated. Too sweet and cheap and adjuncty.

sjogro (2849) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2015
Fles, thuis. Jumbo. Droog stroef pils met herfstblaadjessmaakje. Ontwikkeld zich geleidelijknaar een zacht moutig mondgevoel. Karton, zanderig. Backlog from 2015/10/27.

Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2015
Een zeer licht bier, een lichte kleur, wel een goede schuimkraag. Het valt al bij al nog mee.

kajser27 (1406) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 9, 2015
Copper colored, clear, medium off white head. Aroma is sweet pale malt, sugar, grassy oxidized hops. Taste is medium sweet malt, caramel and candy sugar, grassy low+ bitterness, cardboard. Sweet finish. Low to medium bodied, sticky and watery mixed texture, soft carbonation. Like a sugar infused not really fresh English bitter...

caesar (6682) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2015
Bottle from local Jumbo, BB 18/07/16, large sample. Clear amber to copper color, medium rocky head. Aroma of buttery caramel, slight spicy yeast. Quite sweet in taste, varamel, slight bitterness. Typical belgian amber stuff. Boring.

Erasmus_ro (2539) - Alabama, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours amber. Caramelly, some dark fruit, some flowery hoppiness. Like a Belgian amber.
