rdb84 (539) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2015
Dark golden pour, like Pilsener almost, small foam head. A: Pilsener malts, some grass notes, faint hint of lemon, general fruity yeast aroma. T: starts a bit boozy with a marsipan-like taste, faint hint of metal. Develops towards a floral bitterness with grass notes, also some vanilla. Medium body. Aftertaste is again a bit boozy, with a harsher bitterness, also a bit peppery. Had better, had worse. The only thing that I am wondering about: why did they add (chemically produced) Vitamin C (additive E300)?

kermis (9986) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle courtesy of my fridge. It’s clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, light malts, toffee and fruits. Flavour is light moderate sweet and bitter. Light medium bodied with light carbonation.

MMR (682) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2015
Pours a hazy/orange color. Blonde beer which seems to be spiced to look like a Leffe Blonde.

bierkoning (12193) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle. Golden color. Soft grainy aroma with hints of fruit and floral notes. Grainy sweetish perfumed flavor, rather flat. Drinkable, but mediocre.

slowrunner77 (9661) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2014
darker than one is used to for the style, and fairly flavorful as well. better than average, but not wuite a standout, as it’s #2 rank implies. good dose of hopping and crisp malt sweetness make this a nice summer quencher." not as good on repeat visit.

Alengrin (4344) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2014
Abbey-style blond session beer since 2013, with snow white, sticky head and colour of ’old gold’. Aroma of green apple, iron, grains, banana, honey, grapefruit, cauliflower. Dry fruitiness, grainy, bit metallic, retronasal hint of DMS and low hop bitterness in the finish - need I say more?

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 28, 2014
750 ml cork and caged bottle. Pale gold, perfectly clear, with an average, creamy, moderately persistent bright white head. On the nose grain and corn mainly, some light fruit esters, light toffee, cardboard and booze. Fizzy, cloyingly sweet, massive wet cardboard taste upfront. Malty, a bit astringent, no fruitiness and hoppiness whatsoever. The alchool is well hidden, but it’s not easy to drink at all. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Tastes like a cheap macro lager with lots of brown/dark sugar added and a slightly bigger body. Almost drain pour.

czlowiekwiadro (635) - POLAND - APR 12, 2014
dość delikatny zapach, lekko drożdżowy. słaba i brzydka piana, kolor złoty, klarowny ale jak nie naleje się ostrożnie to jest dużo bardzo brzydkich frędzli. w smaku dość wytrawny, lekko bananowy i drożdżowy.
