Alengrin (3685) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2015 Standard lager from a Limburg brewery which has a much larger output than one would expect, since they brew an awful lot of bland lagers under commission, also for foreign companies. This one, though, is sold under their own name. Orange blonde ’pils’ with creamy head and malt sweetish character, bit metallic, with grassy and soapy hops. Drinkable and perhaps somewhat better than AB InBev’s or Alken-Maes’s standard lagers, but still a bland mass marketed lager like most others - but I guess this is what this style is all about.

Can. Clear golden color with a white creamy head. Aroma of bready malts, grains and hay. Light malty sweetness, a bit grainy and grassy. Light-medium bodied, well carbonated. Pretty standard Euro pils.

zdecydowanie słodowy zapach z lekkim kanałem. zaskakująco przyjemny jak na martensa. kolor złoty, przejrzysty, piana przyzwoita. w smaku słody, metaliczność i coś co próbuje być goryczką. poza tym pusto. średnie wysycenie.

Use to get this in a 4-pack at the LCBO, but now available in singles. Pours a clean light-golden colour with a big frothy white head, good retention and lots of soapy lace. Smells nice at first pour with the Pils grassy nose and hints of fruits, but a little after, the rusty hop aromas appear (that I am not a fan of). The taste is watery with some sweet malts and wet metallic water. Was much better when I had from the can, but when poured into a glass... on this one you can pass.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3566) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 1, 2014
Can, 158 yen from Yamaya served in a half-pint glass. It pours a pale light gold with a huge fizzy white head that leaves decent lacing. Too pale in color for me. A soapy, herbal & grassy aroma. Light-medium body oily mouthfeel, with a sweet, sugary, grain, soapy taste at first which then finishes on a slightly bitter finish. Am not a fan of that soapy flavor.

Extremely pale yellow with a coarse frothy head. Light citrussy aroma of bugger-all matched by the flimsy bugger-all flavour.
