imdownthepub (10460) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2008
Bottled, 330ml from BEERmerchants. Gold with fizzed head. I wasn’t very keen on this one, a particularly sweet and artificial flavour, it felt like they were going for a fresh pine nut note and reached for the bleach. Dead yeasty notes. Not my thing at all.

thewolf (11190) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle @ The Dovetail, London.
Pours clear golden with a small, staying, frothy, white head. Small floaties, good amount of bubbles. Aroma has yeast, wheat, sweetness and some pine hops. Light mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, some soft hoppiness and a little wheat and biscuity malts. Okay.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle from Peterborough BF ’08. Gold with a white head. Yeast and caramel malt aroma. Very sweet taste with a little sourness. Some bitterness at the end, but sweetness and yeast are the dominant impressions. It proved attractive to wasps in the garden. Quite enjoyed it.

MiP (13662) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Belgian yeast aroma. Clear golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is also a lot like Belgian yeast. Some bitterness. Tastes a lot like a Belgian blond. Not a pils, but not bad either.

omhper (19626) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2008
Bottled. Clear golden, dense but fair sized head. Aroma of hay, viola and butterscotch. Medium sweet with fair amounts of hops. Diacetyl gives cellary butterscotch tones. Light-medium bodied with reasonable bitterness.

oh6gdx (20602) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2008
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Sweet malts along with sweet fruits as well as minor notes of yeast and metal. Flavour is sweet malts, very fruity and also has some slight notes of yeast. Quite ale-like lager.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2008
Clear golden with medium white short lasting head. Sweet yeasty aroma with fruity notes. Sweet malty flavor with ripe fruits, yeast and caramel notes. Not your typical lager luckyly.

SilkTork (5229) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2008
Cafe Belge, Canterbury. A dirty tasting lager. Ho ho ho. Drinkable, but not that good. Adjunct flavours. Flaccid and greasy.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2007
A Mes rate: Draught at Bruxellensis. Lager looks. Drinkable and refreshing. Light bitterness and none of the expected cardboard. Surprised that I actually thought this was ok.
