1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sepember 2008: OK, so I am sitting outside my holiday home on a camp site called Petite Suisse (little Switzerland) in Belgium. I know I should be drinking other stuff, but I had to drive the next day, that is why Iím reviewing Pilsners/Lagers that Iíve bought during a raid into Germany and Luxembourg. This came forth and last in the tasting stakes.
Brown 33cl bottle, well in date when reviewed.
Light yellow colour with very little head, what there was came across as a soft white covering.
The aroma was nothing, the beer produced a vacuum nothing could survive in. I couldnít even smell my wifes body odour!
Mellow, soft pilsner taste, very strange. No harshness or crispness, no bite to the beer at all.
This was my first beer from the Duchy for a few years, I choose the wrong one to start with (I hope) because I have 6 more beers Iíve brought home from Luxembourg to review at my leasure.

Fuck, I completely forgot about this beer, thatís not good...
Ha, does say enough, doesnít it? Nah, itís not that bad.
A white head on top of a clear golden colored beer.
Smell and taste malts, some hops, some herbs and something dough a like.
Thereís a medium bitterness with a grainy touch.
Nothing of interest, but enjoy a cool one on a warm summers day, itís ok!

Pretty much a standard pilsener. Not bad at all, not great also. Thereís some weird food-like thing present in the smell but i couldnít name it. Easily drinkable and refreshing. Not special.
