25cl bottle. Bronze body, minimal head. Weak caramelly and minerally aroma. Weak caramelly taste with minimal hoppiness. Shockingly bland - the ale characteristics are all muted, this could very well be just a caramel lager.

maekchu (3323) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi), as "De Koninck APA Antwaarpse Pale Ale". Mild fruity nose, berries, spicy, dark fruit. Coppe/brown color, filmy head. Caramel, thin ripe dark fruit, a bit of sweet baked apples, and a moderate bitter finish. Thin-medium body. Pleasant. A sort of sessionable Belgian Ale.

KoNrRiI (1095) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
0.33 bottle. Clear, amber color with a small, white head on top. The aroma is a bastardization of the standard Belgian yeasts marked with a substantial amount of wet cloth. The taste is a bit more tolerable but by no means amazing: butter, some yeasts, and socks do not make for a great flavor. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is short and bad. Overall the beer is most certainly meager, the only salvation for a drinker’s palate lies in its diluted character.

EdKing (2343) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2016
Keg in Burgers & Beer Gollem in Antwerp. Clear bright rusty orange beer with and medium white head. Nose is spicy, sherberty hop, lemon citrus spritz, boiled sweet, barley sugar, earthy hop. Taste is boiled sweet, barley sugar, toasted grains, earthy, herbal hop, light citrus, dried coriander, spice. Little yeasty floral. Considering its pasteurised this is a very good beer.

Thanks for nothing @kapusil! jk jk. Light amber color with no head. Aroma is sweet syruppy and malty. Light mild bitterness, especially apparent in the finish. Sometimes sweeter, and sticky. Not bad, but not that great either. Not sure what made MJ put this on the 500 list..

0.33l bottle. Clear amber body, very thin white head. Aroma and taste of caramel, cherries, cloves and floral hops. Not bad, but somehow it lacks the character.

Draft. Not bad, just nothing particularly interesting or special; especially when considering the alternatives. Was fine for washing down my pizza.
