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

ElManana (1307) - 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 (2820) - 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 (3684) - 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.

Pale yellow colour, white foam, medium carbonation. No character, malty lager with some sweet notes. Very watery.

tderoeck (6904) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 15/V/13 - 33cl bottle @ De Walrus (Gent) - BB: 3/XII/13 (2013-477)

Clear blond beer, irregular white head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: grains, pretty sweet, hay. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: little bitter, some citrus, herbal hops, grains. Aftertaste: bit sweet, citrus, ok hoppiness, bitter ending. Probably InBev’s best lager / pilsener.

sebletitje (8124) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2012
33cl bolttle BB 13/07/2013. Dorée claire, col blanc fin. Arôme malté avec le profile houblonné typique des pils belge laissant de brčves notes citronnées. Palais est simple, insipide sans vraiment pousser ŕ la découverte aspect doux presque maďs sur un fini citronné et qcq notes de pils malt. Pour 1€ et du InBev je ne m’attendais pas ŕ bcp mieux.
