DraftDodger (299) - - FEB 23, 2015
Copenhagen 26/9 2014. 50 cl can from Fakta. Pours light yellow with white head which quickly settles to a thin layer. Malty lightly sweet aroma. A little bitterness. Prickly mouthfeel - pretty standard for a lager. Grainy taste with lightly bitter aftertaste. Not terrible - but not very exciting either.

baraciisch (2193) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... Aroma of pilsner hops, yellow gold in color with minimal white foam head... Flavor is slightly bitter but crisp, drinkable... Palate is minimally bitter like you’d expect from a pilsner but slightly more tolerable... Generic belgian, but drinkable, given to me free at RAFC (Royal Antwerp Football Club)

Douberd (2910) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2015
(Haacht Primus) Bottle 250 ml at home, served into a footed pilsner glass, ABV 5.2% Golden yellow colour on the body, with a thick and creamy white head, very good retention and medium lacing left on the glass as it slowly collapses. Sweet malty aroma, maybe some adjuncts too, light straw. Good taste, again quite malty and sweet, with some fresh grass and mild bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, nicely carbonated. Not bad at all.

jamestulloch (1800) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Can from The Beerhive. Clear golden body with a thick white head. No visible carbonation... strange. Nice lacing. Aroma of cereal, salted pear and a hint of metal. Flavour of lemon, rust and Rich Tea biscuit. Thin body with a watery texture. Lively fizz. An average Lager.

martin00sr (1170) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2015
Clear golden, airy white head. Sweet, grainy aroma with some yeasty notes. Light malty flavour, nouch else. Seriously boring.

rjplumer (569) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Hay malt aroma. White fluffy one fingered head. The body is yellow with a golden hue. Smooth grain taste with a hint of bitterness towards the finish. Kind of plain and flat.

Alengrin (2815) - BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 Haacht’s pale lager, one of the popular brands on the Belgian market. Tasted from tap in the past but bought a bottle for this rating. Medium thick, snow white, lacing, relatively stable head, colour deep golden blonde with good fizz, cristal clear. Aroma of freshly baked white bread, corn, iron, some sourishly sweaty grains, hint of grass, dry bark. Taste begins with a relatively ’pure’, bready malt sweetishness, but the corn is noticeable (fortunately less so than in e.g. Jupiler); smooth and rounded mouthfeel, a bit metallic in the middle, medium carbonation, somewhat minerally, finishing in the same lingering malt sweetishness and slightly sourish graininess, with a late but in all quite long, drying, grassy hop bitterishness. Hoppier than many other macro lagers and not too offensive in the malt adjunct department: this is perfectly acceptable for its style.
