bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2004
Pale golden colour, particles floating and a poor lasting head. Plain hop aroma and a boring chewable taste with a faint touch of bitterness.

MrHangover (2766) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2011
When you open the bottle the aroma reveals itself really quickly and pleasantly. It has sweetness in it, bit of lemon and spices. The taste is bitter and doesn’t stay long in your mouth. It’s kinda hard to tell it’s pleasant or nasty. I think it can go either way. The glass doesn’t add up to the experience.

Jerre (2723) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2007
On tap, yesterday, @ Delirium café Brussels. Clear yellow color with white head. Aroma malt, hops, very little spice. Thin to medium body, just a bit more than an usual pils. Tatse malt, hops, fruity touch. Not bad.

ALLOVATE (2475) - 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.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2014
Huyghe’s contribution to the big puddle of bland standard lagers, taken over from Biertoren in 1993. Moussy, white, quite stable head, colour pale golden blonde. Grainy character with some aromatic hops in the finish, otherwise there is not much to say about this. Just another boring lager.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2004
Bottled, at The Railway Inn, Kew Gardens, West London. </br>Pale golden colour, with a slight cloudiness to it and thin grey head. Cheep corn or grain aroma, very thin a not really worth the time or effort. Moderately bitter with a thin palate.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2004
Poured clear very light gold with a medium lasting white head. Medium carb. Skunky hop aroma, nothing else really. Thin watery body. Sweet bland taste. Boring!

PriorL (1989) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2013
TAP at Delirium Brussels, shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: metallic, grains, little herbs. TASTE: metallic, pilsener, grains, faint hops. Not completely bad for a pilsener!
