Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Serving: 330 ml bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a deep copper color with a small and fleeting white head. Then nose smells like a Budweiser brewed with Belgian yeast. It has a slight beery tang on the tongue with a fair bit malt sweetness and bubblegum. I wouldn’t mind a little bitterness for balance. Light to medium body with average carbonation. Pretty meh.

Fules (664) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2016
Vékony, de hosszú hab, vörösbe hajló borostyán szín. Illata nagyon enyhe, malátás. Kissé pezsgős gyenge ízvilágú, de nem vizes érzetű. Malátás jegyekkel, enyhe karamellel rendelkező sör, keserű nélkül. Simulékony, már-már lágerekre jellemző összhatás. Közepesen testes. Kissé unalmas, de jól itatja magát.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
0,33 bottle at schipol airport. - Do not be fooled by the title. This is a full-on macrobrew that doesnt taste like much. Slightly spicy and phenolic.

Moravius (1063) - Beijing, CHINA - JUL 16, 2016
Flasche (Palm Spéciale Belge, 33 cl) von Jenny Lou’s, Peking. - Helles Goldbraun, klar. - Limonadig künstliche Nase mit schwachem Toastmalz, zart orangenherbem Hopfen, aber auch schwach seifigen, säuerlichen Noten und eigenartig muffig-strengen Tönen im Hintergrund. - Antrunk leicht limonadenartig-plastiksüß mit Weißbrot und ein wenig Nuß. Trotz zarter fruchtiger Säure laff und etwas leer. Mild rezent, dünnes Mundgefühl. Schwacher Abgang mit süßsäuerlichen Plastik- und Kellermuffnoten. - Laffe, wenig überzeugende Brühe.

Inoven (231) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2016
Flesje "RETRO PALM" thuis gedronken. Licht amber kleurig helder bier met stevig schuim. Fruitig aroma. Zoete, bittere smaak. Niet specialer dan een doorsnee pilsener.

erickok (5190) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2016
Caramel edge over a dry roasted body. No hops at all. Bit devoid of bitterness, mostly because it’s really quite dry. Watery body unfortunately. It’s such a strange style. But better than I remember actually! (25cl bottle from Delhaize Leuven)

Keg in Center Parc, Zandvoort. Clear golden orange beer with a white head. Nose is floral, caramel, fragrant floral and fruity yeast esters, pear drops, slight cereal toasted grain. Taste is sweet, floral, perfumed yeast ester, caramel. Moderate flavour but with nice Belgian fruity yeast action.

Typical commercial beer, even though it’s not eurolager, it’s still very boring and dull. No obvious defects doesn’t make it any better than it is.
