UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015
Did I buy this purely because of the name? Yes. 33cl bottle, BB ’November’ … no year given. Pale orange, slight haze, sparkling, small foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma is biscuits, copper pipe, traces of pineapple if you search. Body is medium to light, spritzy carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is cream crackers, a little tangy, card, dry with pale malts and an enduring breathy bitterness, some vegetable stock. Decent lager.

[330ml bottle, gift from Jim - cheers!] Very pale gold, moderate white head, rather too fizzy. Floral aroma continues into the flavour, although there’s a bit of cardboard there. Dry at first, it grows pleasantly sweet with a little resinous pine in the finish. Not bad for a lager; a big improvement on most of the macros.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Clear and transparent with light yellow colour. Medium head. Nose : bread, grains, wet hay. Light fruity aromas of apricot. Sip : water like with good carbonation. Dry overall with light taste of grains and citrus. I had this bottle after Ulricher Extra and Contra pils ... both much better then this one.

Bottle from beermerchants.com. Gold with a fizzy white short lasting head. Like a pils really, which is not my favourite style of beer and I can take this or leave it really. Quite mild finish, drinkable but a bit average thanks.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Bruxellensis. I know the style gets no respect around here, but I thought this was a nice one with some character. Golden beer with a whitish head that goes filmy. Bready aroma with notes of sourdough, corn tortilla and and grass. Light body, dry, and mildly bitter. Grassy, refreshing. Bust out the Belgian lawnmower.

Boring yellow brew. Thin and undercarbonated. Rather sweet. Hints of hops. Uninteresting.

At d’Oude Speye in Damme near Bruges. Nice golden lager with soft carbonation and creamy head. Good soft aroma’s with some fruityness and a faint hoppy touch. Smooth and refreshing taste with a small bitter touch that is well integrated in this outstanding lager. It has a nice a clean afthertaste.
