gregorymconway (205) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle at St. Veronus. Real light and malty. Transparent gold body with some nice sweetness. A tiny hop presense on the finish. Not offensive, but nothing really to write home about.

Plaas (92) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2015
Boring blonde (like a somewhat sweet lager actually) that tries to make money of WO1. Sick.

freretoc (979) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 23, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 50cl, couleur blonde, belle mousse effervescence moyenne, une bière avec peu degoût; une pointe de mirabelle à la rigueur pas top

Renobob (1051) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 23, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 50cl. Biere blonde très légère. Assez basique et insipide. Biere de soif quoi.

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2014
Another beer celebrating the commemorations around World War I. Comes in a 50 cl bottle - aimed at British consumers, that much is clear. Thin off-white head, breaking after a short while; colour a deep orangey ’old gold’ with steady sparkles, staying clear all the time and therefore clearly filtered and pasteurized. Aroma of stale cookies, sour berries, green apple, starfruit, lemon zest, white candi sugar, toasted bread, caramel, something sweaty and grainy, something phenolic (burning plastic), the unmistakable pasteurization smell and fried eggs. Sweetish onset of restrained, appley and orangey fruitiness and residual sugariness, a bit honeyish, medium carbonation, sourish accent, biscuity and caramelly malts, sweetish and toasted at the same time, finish of grassy hops with low bitterness, yeasty spiciness and badly hidden, gin-like alcohol with somewhat bittering effect, solvents as well, though the last thing remaining is (fortunately) lingering, biscuity and caramelly malt sweetness. The bottle fascinated me more than the beer - if they want to honour the British liberators of Belgium a hundred years ago, why not attempt to make a decent English bitter or any other Anglo-Saxon ale style? Some British beer styles became popular in Belgium after the war anyway... Or was this intended as a bitter or a golden ale after all?

Boxereddy (190) - BELGIUM - DEC 3, 2014
Helder blond bier met minimale schuimkraag, lijkt op pils. Zeer zwak maar fris aroma in de neus. Milde smaak met een bittere hint bij de afdronk. Groot verhaal maar geen groot bier...

psilosophy (531) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - NOV 7, 2014
Bouteille de 50cl. Couleur dorée pale, mousse assez faible, très peu de tenue. Très légère aromatiquement, on distingue néanmoins les notes d’ agrumes et d’ herbes caractéristiques du houblon. Carbonnation assez faible. Désaltérante. Trouvée à Roby - Menin.

ferryman72 (31) - NORWAY - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle, 0,5 ltr. Minimal head, quickly diminished. Very blonde color, looks like a weak pilsner. Very weak but fresh aroma, mild taste with a bitter hint. No aftertaste. The story of this beer is awesome but the product, not so much...
