MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2009
Bottle, 5.0%. Weak dusty aroma. Hazy very pale yellow colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is quite thin. Has a faint hint of hay, and then there is just water. Watery finish as well.

JorisPPattyn (7772) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2004
A word about "Export" first. This disappearing style, used to be a variation on Pils. Usually less fermented (earlier pasteurisation) so the beer is sweeter and lower in ABV. But, in Belgium, the other main difference is that the beer is served in 33 cl, 'staid of the habitual 25 cl Pils. It has all but vanished, and most breweries today just fill 33cl of Pils. This is an exception. Dark gold; thick white, collapsing head, quite lacey. Herbal nose, even some hops - rest is predictably malty. Taste is sweet malt, clean & crisp. Faint corn taste. Slight slickness in mouthfeel, makes me think of corn again. Aftertaste gets more corn, as well as some sweet dough. As I said, apart from the hopnose, very predictable. It is very good in its style - but nowhere exciting.

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle, Brussels. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a light note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Bah.

Cybercat (3194) - Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Pours a clear, wan straw yellow with a thick but not at all persistent white head. Aroma is crisp and malty, but that is all. Flavor is typically malty, a hint of apple, only slightly better than your typical mega-brewed slop. Texture has decent body but hardly any fizz. This is from Belgium? Oh well, definitely not their best. Still potable, though.

Grzesiek79 (3109) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 25, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 Zwykły lager do wypicia na szybko w upalne dni. Dobrze że to tylko mała buteleczka 0,25ml. Gasi pragnienie za to skutecznie
