Alengrin (3547) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
Commissioned standard lager with snow white, creamy, stable head and pale golden colour, cristal clear. Aroma of pale malts and pasteurization (cooked smell), faint flowery hops. Cooked grainy taste, vaguely sweetish but otherwise fairly neutral, with a brief and restrained hop bitterness in the tail. Watery mouthfeel. Bland as usual for the genre.

Jammer dat de brouwers in België hun pils bijna altijd zonder smaak willen maken. Net als dit

Bardzo zle piwo. Chyba jedno z najgorszych jakie mialem okazje degustowac z piw belgijskich. Nawet lagery i tez belgijskie sa sporo lepsze. Mizerna pian, zapach wogole nie wyczuwalny. Babelki szybko ulatuja i piwo wietrzeje. W smaku nieco slodowe z lekka tylko goryczka ale to wszystko takie delikatne i rozwodnione ze az sie chce egzotycznego nawet lagera:)

DutchDrebus (4950) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle at home. Very mediocre pilsener. Tastes little to nothing and quite dry to the mouth. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.

Benzai (11051) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2011
Bottle thanks to Countbeer. Clear yellow / golden color, white head. Smell and taste malts and grains, lightly bitter. Nothing exciting.

suprchunk (2684) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Low expectations for this that were far surpassed. Not sure if everyone else is rating to the style this beer is in or not, but it is a Pils. Light straw pour. Large head that, expectedly, dies down quickly. Little bit of lacing left behind. Hop and malt aroma. Just the slightest caramel aroma. Smooth mouthfeel with a sweet malty and bitter hoppy taste. Tastes like a little brother to Budvar. Nice example of a mass Pils. And better than most of the others.
