COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Refreshing continental lager with a hoppy finish.

zacgillbanks (2364) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle from Sainsburys, Team Valley, Gateshead. Golden coloured with a rapidly disappearing head. Little fizz with a sugary toffee flavour, a thin watery body followed by a slight bitter finish. Pretty poor.

Bottle, presumably from Sainsburys, brought by guests to the house. Those small stubby bottles remind me of teenage drinking, lukewarm lager, corny, skunky, chemically. And that’s pretty much what we have here, thin as well at only 2.8%, some attempt at pils-style hopping but kind of harsh and skunky, grim aftertaste. Really not good - what to do with the remaining bottles left festering in the fridge???

kwik-lime (1341) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014
A couple of stubbies a barbecue. To be fair I couldn’t tell how low the ABV was and there’s a reasonable hop character about it. Somewhat corny though and certainly boring.

Bog standard session lager (biere de table??). That said, it does bog standard well without excessive acidity that you sometimes get this end of the spectrum. It’s cheap, inoffensive, drinkable and refreshing which has a place away from the pretence of craft lager. Sometimes simple is best.

Little bottle some left in the fridge in the place we were staying. You bastard! I had to drink it! Aroma is dusty metal, corn, grass. Flavour is malty, grainy, suppose I’ve had worse.

The Biere Des Flandres is a delightful brew with an iconic name; situated between the delectable taste of Budweiser and the thick, creamy New Moon, Flandres has that iconic taste that out just cannot get enough of, you will find yourself going back for ’Moore Moore Moore’, (How do you like it? How do you like it?) On a serious note Biere Des Flandres offers a wonderful drinking game for you wannabe brewers. The Flandres (Moulins) challenge. How about you try 6 Flandres or Moulins in 6 minutes!? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

foxo82 (704) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
25 cl bottle. Lager smell. Faint hint of lager taste. Has the same refreshing qualities of water because that’s largely what it is.

water, hints of grains and corn, more water, hints of alcohol, awful, simply awful.

worldbeertaste (1670) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
Orange with a thin white quick disappearing head. Smells of cheap malt, corn and straw. Yummy cardboard. Lots of additives. Watery and thin. Tastes of corn, straw and lager. Bitter and cheap.

No head, clear, yellow. Light straw/cardboard on the nose, taste is slightly bitter, that’s all that can really be said about this, but what do expect? I would take a case of this over virtually any other mass market lager because it’s much cheaper and just as good.
