drat@Paters Vaetje: clear golden with a white head, taste & smell at first almost nothing, grainy, light malt & sugar, incredibly neutral for a beer, as it warms up, you get some light sweet fruit, some spices, minor yeast, pepper, incredibly kind of empty for a beer in distinct characteristics, neither bad or particularly good

omhper (20719) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2011
Bottled, thanks WIm and Els! Clear golden, creamy head. Sweet and creamy with medium body. Plenty of marzipan and iron, slight resiny bitterness. Easy going strong ale with good drinkability and some levels oif complexity.

Benzai (9786) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2011
Bottle @ Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Yellow, pretty standard blonde color, white head. Smell and taste are ok, but overall very average.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours unappealingly pale. A pretty dry palate with just some citrus notes to break that up. Disappointing.

bierkoning (10921) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle. Blonde. Lemon and a hint of grass in the aroma. Slightly yeasty, grassy flavor with citrus notes. Alcoholic. Moderately sweet, but also soft and velvety. Decent but simple.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Spicy all around; phenols in the aroma, sugar and sour in the flavor moderately, some pepper, yeasty beer, sharp. I kind of used the beer at the end as a real swisher to see what would happen and my mouth got really spicy. Lots of lacing man. Spicy yeasty - again - sticks with you and lays it on heavy.

FatPhil (10324) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 6, 2011
330ml bottle (some random bar, Bruges)
6 Sweet perfumey malts.
3 Mid gold, healthy persistent head
6 Lovely soft perfumey malts and hops. Quite clear real hops, but still very malted
3 If it wasn’t for the residual sugars, this would have a thin palate, but it does have carbonation that fits well with that level of sweetness. Finish fairly crisp, and with fresh green hops.
13- Very easy drinker. A hoppier version of Leffe, say.
