ladnewton (1474) - 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.

Alengrin (2436) - 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 (1221) - 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.

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 (3560) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014

hawthorne00 (2543) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2014

eduardovl (949) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml can served in a chalice. A: Pours a pale yellow color forming a huge white aired bubbled head. Good retention and some lacings left S: Smells like a regular Lager. Very grainy. Sweet grains, corn, yeasts and hops T: Pretty much like the nose. Sweet grains. A strong grainy backbone. Metallic. A dry beer, in overall. Mild hops bitterness aftertaste. Disappointing M: Very light body. High carbonated. Mild sweet upfront, mild bitter aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Completely disappointing beer. Oh yeah, Belgium can produce disappointing beer [ BA Review @ 6/7/2012 ]

Tarosama (57) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Another everyday Belgian pils. Very light golden colour. Sweetish, quite gassy, added “corn”ish flavour. You can buy from B&M, Ł3.99 for 4 cans. Good value for money.
