Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2005
An orange beer with sediment floating around and a small white head. The aroma is yeasty combined with notes of lemon. The flavor is sweet malty - quite boring. A one-dimensional beer.

ALLOVATE (2458) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2005
This seemed to be a watered down version of it’s big brother Campus. Tasted from the bottle and, not knowing what to expect, poured it into a stumpy tulip glass. Hazy yellow body with the most floaters I have ever seen suspended in the liquid like Sea monkeys, had the look of 100% orange and lemon juice. Pour head retention with only minimal lace. Spicy citric aroma with a little vanilla and candi. Fairly light on in the mouth in both flavour and body, and medium in carbonation, it was like the second runnings of a Belgian blonde wort. Aroma was the only thing giving it base as the citric, honey and vanilla flavours seemed far off in the background. Finishes off with a crisp forgettable swallow that left you wondering where the beer went. Not bad, not good.

JorisPPattyn (8014) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2005
Clear pale gold; good fluffy yellowish-white head. Vegetable, very grassy nose, hay, greenmalt. Mainly sweet pilsnermalt taste, again a bit grassy, very grainy. Finishes bit tart-metallic, even harsh. Quite refreshing, light bodied, fizzy MF. WTH is this relabled pilsner doing in Australia?

madquacker (1049) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2005
Labelling suggested this was a trappist beer but was more like a sweetish cornish malty lager brew of a sort difficult to categorise. Was bizarre. Very chewy and grainy and not watery. Plenty of floaters added to its strangeness. A beer from another dimension. Something different but not great. Not sure would buy another.

highlandlad (1418) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2005
Humdrum lager from a real hit-and-miss Belgian brewer. Lager gold colour, with some sedimentation and a short head. The nose has some citric hops. The palate is thin and quenching. Some sweetness and then nutty bitterness in the finish. Passable lager but unremarkable. (Bottle)

BTetlow (7) - BALLARAT, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2004 does not count
UPDATED: APR 10, 2009 Very pale in colour and quite cloudy (in the bits floating in it kind of way) Tastes a little like its stuck between styles lager/Trappist Ale, and failed on both. Too sweet for a lager and not challenging enough for a Trappist. Definately quite watery, but the sweetness there was of a very faint bitter orange and honey. A little too dry on the end.

Bov (9683) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 5, 2004
clear pale golden colour, fine head, modest herbal hoppiness, sweet, light to medium body, the finish is slightly dry and mostly tasteless - unspectacular

vanvenlo (1283) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2004
7 May 2004 - AIBA 2004 - Suphur sweet malt, clear yellow, easy drinking hop flavour, a bit thin and dissapointing.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Quite yeasty and alcoholic flavour. Some sour freshness. Reddish/amber colour. Quite boring and watery.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2004
[Draught] Golden coloured. Very boring and weak aroma. The flavour is sweet and bland. Quite thin.
