2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(on tap) Dark golden, creamy white head. Aroma of sweet-bread-like malts and grassy hops. Very mild at first, getting stronger as the hop aroma accumulates on the palate. But there is also some creamed corn aroma, which I find suspicious. Taste is lightly sweet with only very light bitterness. Sweetness matches the malts, but that is not what I am looking for in a pale lager. Light to medium body, and not too fizzy. Hoppy aroma tends to accumulate on the palate. Drinkable due to the aromatic hops, but I am not looking forward to trying the bottled version.

Battin Gambrinus is far the best luxemburgish beer, but only Gambrinus because Battin Frutté, Extra or Edelpils are not that good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dorée/orangée, blanc épais.
Arôme est agréable fleuri et houblonné, malt pâle sans plus.
En bouche, houblonné et fleuri, malté doux, sec et pétillant avec ce côté typique malt et un fini très belge. Dans l’ensemble reste réussie.

Brown flip-top bottle holding 50cl of beer, best before 25th Oct 2008, drank just over a month before that date (23rd September 2008).
This is a Mister average lager/pilsner. Softer in all aspects to the often harsher German beers in the same style. I assume the water is softer somehow?
The beer poured golden and clear with very little head from the outset.
There is no true aroma to report on, the taste and mouthfeel was the regular lager blandness. This added to the softness produced a pretty boring beer to be honest.
