Ungstrup (34219) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 11, 2007
Bottled. A light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and very grainy combined with some notes of straw, the flavor is sweet mlaty with primary notes of grain and straw, but also light notes of honey. Boring.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
(Bottle 25 cl) Clear, pilsener golden with a white head leaving laces. Sweetish, malty aroma. Medium body with sweet malts - and then nothing much more really. Basically no bitterness. Drinkable though. 090407

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 Watery, vaguely popcorny pils sniffing of vinegar. That said, at 15cents a bottle, I’m not complaining. Creamy white head, swirling bead and fluffy lacework. Drinkably insipid.

77ships (7636) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2016
250 ml. bottle sampled @ home. BBF 13.02.2016. Wow forget that I even had this one (I don’t think that I have had this one that long), should be fine. Sparkling chemical apple juice, nearly instantly gone industrial head. Nose is industrial apple juice, cooked vegetables, badly mineral, chemical, rather watery,… Taste is watery cardboard, industrial apple juice, paper cooked vegetables, badly mineral, aftertaste is watery strong metallic water,… Strongly watery body, metallic, cardboard. Rubbish very cheap pilsner. Not good but I think that people who purchase this care.

BlackHaddock (6201) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
25cl Brown bottle, best before 28 Aug 2011, drank from a Duvel glass on 15 Mar 2011. Pale golden body, clear and clean looking. A good solid snowy white head sat on top. Metalic feel to the weak smells of grains. Oh dear, the taste and mouthfeel are awful, really bland and that metalic feel from the aroma is here in the flavour too. Not impressed at all. This is a terrible example of Belgian brewing and lager producers from anywhere.

Countbeer (5997) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2012
I keep finding lists of beers I have drunk during vacations, trips, a.o. I found out that I have tasted these brews about 10 years ago, I most likely tasted more, but these were the ones I found on the list and of course that was all I found. I made no notes about the beer but only about the amount of different beers (like names, breweries and bottles). Now this rating, is nothing more than: "I have tasted this beer and I can get it stored here (Ratebeer)" (for my own (in)complete list). I do vaguely remember some things and hence the scores differ.         So untill I drink this beer again, that’s when I can re-write this rating.

Bottle in Brussels. Golden body with tall head. Corny nose. Malty and sweet taste. Watery, sweet and slightly spicy, malty finish. Not bad.
