schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2007
33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ ... Dark blond, greenish hue, clear. The head doesn’t hold for long. Complex aroma - it begins with yeast and fruit (mandarins, bananas). Some malts and a hint of hops come later, followed by barnyard notes only later. The latter is convincingly present in the taste, though; which is for the rest dry, sourish, again giving off some mandarins. Chalky finish. Almost every sip reveals something new. Is this really a pils? It tastes more like a mixture of ale and lambic. Infected then?

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2007
A Sim rate (Bottle at Smellirium): First, I just must mention that I hate this place...just hate it! And Kerstbier? Um... wha? Looks and tastes like a pils to me. Slightly spicy, though perhaps tainted perception due to the 4-day-old ginger cookie I just ate. No worry, added a bit of character to an otherwise personality-less excuse for a Kerst.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle. Surprisingly OK. Sweet, but clean and slightly grassy in the finish. A drinkable pils, if not a very exciting one.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2007
Bottle. Clear, pale golden with a big white head. Faint malty nose with a hint of grassy hops. Sweet and grainy flavours, some grassiness. Fizzy. Uninspired.

skortila (5272) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2007
Aroma of grassy (german?) hops and grapefruits. Clear, golden coloured with a lasting, thin, white head. taste is sweet, somewhat bitter, grassy-hoppy and fruity (grapefruits). Interesting brew. Certainly not bad.

bierkoning (12350) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2007
Bottle. Golden color. Clear, but not filtered. Greapefruit overshadows the hops in the aroma. Light flowery hopbitter flavor with grapefruit and a hint of blackcurrant. Very refined flavor, glorious aroma. Delicately balanced. But sadly a rather short finish. Still a very nice beer.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2006
(Bottled) Clear golden color with a medium, tight and foamy head. Grassy, saaz-hoppy aroma with some yeastiness. Grassy-hoppy, quite malty flavor with caramel, birch leaves and earthy tones. Medium-bodied, refreshing palate with slightly fizzy carbonation. A nicely tasty and balanced, freshly hoppy pilsener. A less interesting version of Vandenheuvel Ekla. Nothing to do with christmas, but that’s ok...
