DeanF (1736) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 6, 2009
Smells like a very piss-poor lager in a can, which I say confidently after sampling way too many piss-poor lagers in a can: tinniness, some corn starch, watery stench like smelling grass that’s been freshly urinated upon. And I’ll assume it looks like a crappy lager as there’s no place to pour it on this chunnel train. Its saving grace is a very average taste with bready notes, some hops, and a slightly dry finish. But it doesn’t taste Belgian by any stretch. A poor showing all around. Avoid this "imported Belgian".

Rune (8503) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2009
500ml can from a M&S store in Earls Court. Straw-yellow content with fragile lacework on the glass. A bit of cowshed to the nose. Sweet flavour of lime with papery notes. Fizzy carbonated. Very much in the direction of a soft drink (03.08.2009).

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2009
Sweet grainy aroma. Pale amber, Little head. Very weak malty and hoppy flavour. Watery. Finishes dry. Not to my taste.

thewolf (11264) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2009
Can, bought @ M&S, Edinburgh.
Pours very pale golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is super sweet, maize and brewing cereal. Medium carbonation, rather thin and watery. Very little flavour. Light grainy, sweet maize, some brewing cereal. Citric finish. Not good.
