ladnewton (1500) - London, Greater London, - NOV 14, 2012
On tap at the Blue Diamond, Anderlecht, Belgium (now operating as an Italian restaurant), 13th November 2012. Gold with thin white fully lacing foam. Light hoppy aroma with leafy "pils" grassiness. Hoppy in-mouth with grass and citric flavours alongside light herbs. Grassy/herby finish. Powerful carbonation and light body.

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.

Clear golden, airy white head. Sweet, grainy aroma with some yeasty notes. Light malty flavour, nouch else. Seriously boring.

rjplumer (501) - 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 (2592) - BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2014
Haacht’s pale lager, one of the popular brands on the Belgian market. Pale blonde under a thick, snow white head with good fizz; grainy aroma with hint of corn and some grassy hops. Malt sweetish and grainy taste, corn slickness, otherwise neutral and minerally, low hop bitterness in the finish. Acceptable for the style but very generic.

- Alcoholpercentage van 5.2 - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

suurjuust (1292) - ESTONIA - DEC 2, 2014
Shared by martjoobolut. Clear gold, frothy white head. Nose is corn and grain, sweetness. Flavor is grain, wet cardboard, industrial hops. Very easy to drink like water, which is also very easy to drink. Meh.

martjoobolut (1039) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 29, 2014
0,25L bottle as "Primus Premium Pils". Pours clear golden with white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, malt. Flavor is sweet, corn, malt, some bitterness, very watery, some weird oily flavor. Overall: rather bad.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2014 01/11/2014 tap @ Koppenberg Cross Clear golden colour with small white head. Smell is grains and hay. Taste is grains again, light yeast, light bitterness at the end. Not a fan of the style but one of the best I had in ages.

Vaiz (3595) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden pour. Aroma is quite watery, some grainy malts and a bit sugary. Flavor is watery grainy sweet malts. Simple but clean pilsener.

hawthorne00 (2589) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2014
Can. Pale gold with a white head. Grainy aroma with some hay and herbs. Sweet and grainy with a decent bitter and peppery kick at the end. Finish is dry. Not awful but rather dull.
