Haacht is the 3rd ranking Belgian Brewer and is still independent. Primus is the main brand which is a crisp, dry and refreshing lager. It is brewed from all natural ingredients.

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear gold. Aromas of lemon, hay. Taste is refreshing and bitter.

erickok (5396) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2016
Simple sweet euro lager, not much to say about it. It’s seemingly devoid of any hop whatsoever and I don’t like the certainly rushed fermentation either, not clean enough, no character, no smoothness. You’re better off with the big brands. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

DylansDad (586) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 20, 2016
Generic lager with corn, hay, vegetable oil etc etc, but lifted above the others (ever so slightly) by an ever so slightly cleansing pepperiness and metallicularity at the back. On a scale of "puke" to "wow!" this rates as a definite lower-end "m’eh", but isn’t drain-pour.

BKHansen (73) - Praestø, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2016
50 cl. dåse. Klar ravgul med pæn hvid skumkrone. Maltet let sød aroma. Men lettere bitterhed. Medium krop, pæn kulsyreholdighed.

Bottles/tap. Just a Pilsener. All the standard stuff you all know. Just a entry for the record.

Patrickctenchi (6028) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 12, 2016
Bottle: Clear, light gold with a foamy white head. .....6 1/2 months before "best by" and yet massively green-bottle skunked... Sweet, skunky grain malt/ barley flavor and taste.....a little grassy hop and a slight peppery-ness. Probably OK at the source...but not so much after the Belgium to Indiana voyage.

tmoreau (3706) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2016
On tap at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL. as a 5 oz. flight sampler, showing a clear & bright, golden hue, with small bubbled frothiness to the white head foam, and sheet-like cling to the lacing. The nose was grainy, with sweet malt, and hints of corn husk & butter. Light bodied, with lively enough carbonation, light hop bite, and some earthy bitterness. Ultra sessionable, food & fest worthy.

AshtonMcCobb (5241) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle thanks to Dunns. Appearance - golden with a decent head. Nose - lemon and light metallic with a pale malt background. Taste - more of the same. Light butterscotch. Palate - light bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - ok but not as refreshing as a lager should be.

Garrold (4242) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Can. Rosy’s (no longer that cheap, cottage cheese, and still quite cheap bog roll) Emporium. Ok, this lager. Not exactly distinct from many others, although it has some hoppage. Ends up too sweet. Still necked three cans in an hour, mind you.
