1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 660ml. Gold colour with fast disapearing white bubbly head. A hot baking day at work, why not go home to a big bottle of cold lager? I’ll tell you why, this stuff is not very good. Sweet and soapy I would describe it as, like British pub lager. This is the sort of beer that will get Belgium a bad name.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. A yellow gold coloured lager with a white head. The aroma is pretty nasty grassiness and notes of cabbage water and can be smelt from quite a distance. The taste is fairly bitter but there’s a bit of a sweet metal. Not the type of beer I think of when I think of Belgium.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, Sainsburys Kidlington. Gold in colour, large white fluffy head, sweet, some hops and malt but ultimately very forgettable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sniffs of grass and beeswax. Yellowish pale gold with a thinning white head. Cheap malt graininess and metal. Astringently bitter finish. Drinking rainwater from a rusty tuna tin.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Golden colour with a slight white head and moderate carbonation. Sweet malt aroma with a touch of hay. Flavour was also sweet with a decent dry finish. Not bad for a lager.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Pale straw in colour, vaguely grassy aroma; a fluffy white head; a sweet flavour with a metallic edge; doen’t deserve the "premium" tag.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold with a lasting white head. Faint malt aroma. Sweet roasted malt taste with some bitterness. Better than some of its kind, but not very wonderful.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a strong lager but slightly better than I had expected. A bit tinny which was worrying as it was from a bottle. Some bitterness and not really that offensive-just not one to try again.

1.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Metro Wines, Syston, Leicester. A mysterious item - with only an importer listed - no brewer or any information... Smells nice - quite dry and salty. Unfortunately the aroma is not a good indicator: it does not taste too good. Thin, one-dimensional and heavily metallic. It finishes like you're licking a stone fireplace. Zzzzz

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Pale gold colour, good lasting thin white head and moderate condition. Some hop and malt aromas, thin and malty in the the mouth and short and chalky in the finish with traces of hop bitterness.
