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.

Erzengel (1912) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2013
33cl. Pale golden in colour, white head. The beer starts very bitter, slightly grainy. The mainpart is well balanced, slightly dry, lager typical and slightly bitter. The aftertaste is medium, a bit sweeter, slightly grainy and slightly bitter.
--> typical pale lager. Not the worst one. --> 10/12/10/10

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2007 Pours pale yellow w/ a decent head. Aromas of hay and skunky malts. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are skunky and canny. I do however like the expansive texture of soft cloth on the palate that it creates. The finish is bittered mildly leaving a waxy fruit flavor to enjoy.

Tin. Not bad for the style but the aroma began with a blast of sewer gas. Golden pour with thin white head. Flavour has a bit of malt, a good bit of hop and a dry finish. A so-so beer from Belgium
