2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
[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.

Bottle kindly donated by the brewmaster himself. Golden coloured. Strange aroma with notes of ammonium. Grassy flavour with a rather bitter finish.

Grainy apple aroma and flavor. Somewhat dusty with just a touch of hops, the apple dominates. Hopbitter aftertaste. Disappointing beer.

On tap at In de Wildeman. Clear golden colour, dense white head. Aroma of butter and sour mash, not really good. Flavour is sweet, light malty, light sour and light buttery, light bitter finish. Watery texture. Thin. Nah..

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.

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

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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A yellow beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and sour (probably from brewing cereal). The flavor is also sweet and sour but with a rather hoppy end with some oily hints, but on a sour corn background. The body is thin.

Cafe Belge, Canterbury. A dirty tasting lager. Ho ho ho. Drinkable, but not that good. Adjunct flavours. Flaccid and greasy.

Bottle. This is just crappy Be;gian lager, about on par with Stella, kinda bland and fizzy, but with bit more appeal than most mass produced lagers.
