3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2009 When drinked from the new super-chilled taps that the brewery of Alken-Maes has invented, it’s one of the most enjoyable Pilsener-beers I know. It was the first beer I ever drank, so I’m pretty much as biased as you could get. It doesn’t have a lot of taste, but drinks away pretty well.

From tap at Domus. Pours clear and golden yellow with a huge white head. Mild cornish and caramel malty aroma. Mild sweetend malt flavoured. Subdued caramel mixed with a light metallic note. Medium dry and light fruity finish. Decent.

Shared this with Oldrtybastrd. This poured a pale golden with a little white head. This had a little skunky aroma but tasted good for what it is.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 250ml from BEERmerchants, Kent.
Pale gold with white head, carbonisation. Quite a sharp, tinny start to this, a breadcrust malt with a yeasty background. Cleans up after a while and sharp citric notes come through with a dry bitterness. Not disastrous unless you are stuck with the early flavour.

On tap at De Groote Witte Arend, Antwerpen.
Pale golden coloured, airy white head, dusty hoppy nose. Weak malty, and hoppy with salty and bready notes. Some grainy notes in the finish.Drinkable but in other hand typical industrial beer.
