1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
It’s mid-afternoon on a wet Brugge December 2015 day. I need a beer but not a strong one. The glass fronted fridges inside The Bier Paleis has a couple of these within: why not try one? Pale golden pour with a fading white head. Odourless, tasteless and cold: typical lager/pilsner then. Not much going on anywhere with this, not even corny/grainy or sweet, just bland from start to finish. Unimpressed.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Who the hell knows how flats of this stuff make it up to the far corners of the world - there it is, on a shelf in Yellowknife. Belgian, you say? So it is, apparently. Well, this has almost no head and a very boring yellow body with plenty of carbonation. And it has a boring aroma of dried cardboard with hints of smelly socks and raven poop. Flavour is lots of acrid grains and cardboard with just a vague hint of citrus. This stuff is weak and vile from all angles.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big offwhite head. Clear coppery body with strong carbonation.
Fruity oily aroma with mealy herbal notes. Sweetish fruity mealy
taste with herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish
fruity mealy aftertaste with metallic herbal notes. Fairly
straightforward, but has real flavour. I was surprised to find I
quite liked it. (0.33l bottle, from Meny Strřmmen.)

Mooi gouden pilsener met een mooie schuimkraag.
Bier is lekker doordrinkbaar, een mooie dorstlesser.

Skunky pale malts, strong apple aroma. Watery mouth feel and very low carb. Apple finish, skunky cereals.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dorada limpia de escasa espuma, apenas burbuja. Aroma marcadamente cereal. En boca base malteada y cereal, dulce, y contrapunto más seco y moderadamente amargo a medida que avanza el trago. Gas notable y cuerpo ligero. Bebible y poco más

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour with soapy white head. Aroma is sweetish cereal grains and straw. Flavour is gently sweet graininess with a light straw/grass note. Body on the lighter side of medium. A little watery. Underwhelming.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33 l bottle from Alko. Golden colour, clear, bubbles. Taste has some malts and some hops. Basically a Mediterranean lager at 5% ABV. Rice makes the taste too smooth. Not interesting at all.
