Benzai (9548) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle @ home. Clear yellow golden color, average sized white head. Smell and taste are exactly as to be expected: malts, a hint of sweet malts or corn, lightly grains, lightly bitter finish. Average body, medium carbonation. Typical, decent no flaws but unexiting pale lager.

Alusmamuts (725) - LATVIA - MAR 13, 2015
Golden with small white head. Malty aroma. Typical lager, watery, malty with some sourness.

highlandlad (1432) - 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)

madquacker (1063) - 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.

ALLOVATE (2537) - 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.

larsniclas (5881) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2007
Draught at Sailors Inn, Budapest. Pale golden with a small, white head. A bit grassy aroma with a flavour with a thin body and some late bitterness.

thewolf (11334) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2011
Tap @ Delirium, Brussels.
Pours clear pale golden with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is weak, light citric, maize and sugar. High carbonation, light watery palate. Flavour is sweet, sugary, light bitterness. Boring, but an okay lager.

sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2011
Draft @ Delirium, Brussels. Couleur dorée, col blanc. Profile reste dans la lignée des Huygue, malt pils/pale. Un peu plus relevée avec une pointe de caramel qui enlève un peu de ce fini amer/métallique tout en conservant ces notes houblonnées allemandes et tchèques. Bière estudiantine, quoique cela reste à débattre. Ça rafraichit, mais sans plus.

Svesse (6734) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
(Draught at Delirium Tap Bar, Brussels, 20 July 2012) Pale yellow colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with bread, hay and cereal. Malty taste with notes of bread, grass, hay and a gentle bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of malt sweetness. Quite neutral, middle-of-the-roadish pale lager. Drinkable, but hardly necessary.
