Mijn favoriete bier om door te drinken. Het zit grotendeels tussen de oren, daarvan ben ik mij bewust.

Clear golden colour with quick fading head. Has a certain skunky aroma which for me is generally a plus with lagers. Flavour has some corn and cardboard.

77ships (7682) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2016
330 ml. bottle sampled @ home. BBF 25.11.2016. Sparkling clear industrial, looks suited for a commercial, industrial white head that is quickly gone. Smell is overly sweet cooked vegetables, vegetable oil, sweet plastic, nasty, industrial,… Taste is plaster, cooked vegetables, massive vegetable oil, corn, oily stale grains, faint cooking oil bitterness, grains. Watery industrial body. Cheap industrial affair, not good but not that terrible either. I wonder where they export this one to, ingredients are listed only in Dutch & French. Fine I suppose if you are looking to drinks some very cheap pale lager.

goozen (3800) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle 0,33 ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an adequate sweet bitter taste. Another remnant of an InBev hostile takeover brand.

BlackHaddock (6235) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2015
33cl bottle at home in the early hours of 7th Dec 2015. Light golden body, bright and clear: on top a deep white head. Almost odourless, maybe a grain/malt ester or two. Taste is leaning towards sweetness with a malty lead, but not much going on really. Bog standard European Lager/Pilsner: refreshing but lacking character or real flavour. I wonder where they export this beer too? I bought mine in Belgium.

ElManana (1771) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle at JH Ekseekwo. As an alternative to the Jupiler Crap I've been drinking all night. Too bad this is even worse. Smells like dog piss, drinks like a sugared version of Jupiler. Truly horrendous. People in this place seem to think it's cool to drink this, because it's something else but obviously they have no clue whatsoever.

bartlebier (3350) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2015
33cl bottles on repeated unguarded instances in Meetjesland watering holes, plus consciously at Biermuseum, Ertvelde 2013. As remarked below, this "etikettenbier"/commissioned beer’s primary function is regional nostalgia for a now defunct brewery, and with it, the whole style of the (Belgian) Export, a once popular German import. Beneath the 70s label is: a none too clean, none too flavourful grain-amped and possibly corn/mais/rice-aided lager, which settles for tired cardboard-sweet malts carrying generic grassy hop bitterness stopping miles short of BE-pils bitter. Sticky edges, metallic body. A bit of a regional joke by InBev, though not too offensive to the non-sensitive palate.

Alengrin (4467) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2014
One of those remnants of the Interbrew era, when local brands were bought only to keep them artificially alive in order to keep their faithful audience paying for them. This was, and is still, very popular in Eeklo, where the original brewery, which also produced stout among other beers, was located. It is an ’export’ in the Belgian sense of the word: standard lager in bottles of 33 cl. The beer itself is okay, with sweet pale malts, light golden colour and stable snow white head, and grassy hops in the finish; but it is still a boring mass-produced pale lager.

JefVerstraete (2865) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2014
Pale yellow colour, white foam, medium carbonation. No character, malty lager with some sweet notes. Very watery.

Benzai (13678) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly bitter, slightly grainy. Average body and carbonation.
