GarnotingPete (771) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
Bière cuivrée, légèrement voilée et coiffée d’un beau col crémeux laissant une opulente dentelle au verre. Des arômes très légers de malt caramel et de foin humide. Faible en goût, peu amère avec un peu de sucres. Elle est plutôt aqueuse, de corps frêle, très effervescente et se termine rapidement sur des arômes assez pâles.

Marduk (2526) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 25, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear amber color. Small head, stays. Sweet, malty, watery, toffee in aroma. Weak aroma. Taste is pretty much the same. It’s just so watery.

TaktikMTL (5628) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
Bouteille de 650ml, avec bouchon de céramique, achetée chez Monoprix (Paris, France). Arôme: Légère odeur de céréale. Apparence: La couleur est blonde-dorée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de céréale avec une pointe d’houblon. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est mince avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #4904)

330ml bottle - shared by Anna and Marduk from 6llesummer
Pale, fizzy. Mild goats cheese aroma, some simple bready malts, and a hint of baby vomit. Nimbu masala brings out just a hint of that in the taste. But otherwise it’s a weak thin light maltiness. Thin biting noble hops. A touch drying resininess. Very watery palate. As dull as dishwater.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2013
65cl bottle from some grocery store in Nice, France. Pours a crystal clear, yellow-gold colored body with a finger-width, foamy and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet, honeyish pale malts with some grain, touches of hay, and a light fruit note. Flavor is thin, grainy pale malts with a touch of honey sweetness, a light hay, and just a hint of fruit. Finishes clean and dry with a very light bitterness before leaving a short aftertaste. Light body and a soft, somewhat active, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty basic pale lager. Not terrible, but not very interesting.

bartlebier (1485) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 7, 2013
65cl fliptop bottle from the "bio corner" @Leclerc Verdun. - Typically malty French lager which sadly muffles all quality natural ingredients and specifically characteristic natural hops (pepper, grass, some lemon) under almost chewy layers of it seems poorly ground malts. Kronenbourg’s self-righteously organic nephew?

erickok (3415) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 9, 2013
Golden clear body and bubbly white body. Light malty, farmhouse yeast, not very fruity, grass hops but only little. Simple Belgian style blond with very mild taste. Doesn’t quite stack up to the Belgian originals but an extra point for being organic. Unexciting. (50cl bottle from Carrefour in Tours)

Enjoyit (3447) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2013
Clear golden of color with a white head. An aroma of malt, sweets, hops and citrus. A flavor of malt, hops, grass and weak bitterness.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Hazy pale yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of grass, straw. Taste is bitter citrus and fruit. Not bad.

gunnfryd (10201) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is butterscotsch, caramel, orange. Flavour is butterscotsch, hop, fruit, citrus. Medium body. Boring beer.
