The other students on this campus are purportedly ales. This beer pours clean and clear in the glass with a crisp creamy head. There is good lacing in the glass as well so for all intents and purposes it looks good. But then it hit me! The use of that dreaded word 'premium'. Whenever this word is used it is almost mandatory that the beer should be bland and fairly unexciting. Well done Campus, you get A+ for achieving the mediocrity expected.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2004
Boring crap. Huyghe suck anyway, and then they go and make this shitty lager. Corny/ricey, sweet-ish malty, dry-ish finish and easy to drink, extremely boring, and very uncompliacted. Why do us Aussies end up with all the crap? This is a pretty pointless beer.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2004
One of my least favourite breweries and it's no surprise when they make such mediocre crud as this. Thin, champagne like texture with flat, corny malt and soft hop flavour. At least it's not as offensive as other Huyghe products.

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.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2004
[Draught] Golden coloured. Very boring and weak aroma. The flavour is sweet and bland. Quite thin.

Ungstrup (29135) - 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.

omhper (19220) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 Bottled. Clear pale golden, brief head. Papery nose with rubber and glue. Sweet, bold and unrefined with flavour of burnt rubber. Low bitterness. Like an attempt of producing as many brewing errors as possible without rendering the beer altogether undrinkable.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2004
huyghe leave their distinctive stamp of mediocrity on yet another style, this time a becks-style lager. smells sweetly malty with a faint note of clag, tastes grainy and slightly salty, with a tiny bit of tinny hop at the end. zzzzz

Do I smell another "dump this crap in australia" ploy? It a lager, very boring and pretty expensive for the bland offering. Kind of annoyed I grabbed 2 bottles of this as I have to do something with the other one now. I might drink it next time I get good and drunk, saves wasting a good beer when I won't appreciate it.
