Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUN 4, 2016
Ivorian standard lager from a large bottle - thanks Ruben for bringing me this from western Africa. Thick, snow white, lacing, stable head, deep golden blonde colour, cristal clear with vivid fizz. Aroma first dominated by the dreaded ’lightstruck’ effect (skunked), which does fade away after a while, leaving room for some other impressions: sourish grains, soggy corn, iron, dust, wet paper. Neutral onset with minerally accents, quickly shifting to a mixture of dull sweet corn and sourish graininess, a tad bready, metallic in the middle, almost no hop bitterness in the end as is the case with many a tropical lager; corn syrup sweetishness keeps prevailing, in a thin, dull and bland way. Boring as any standard pale lager, but still drinkable. I poured a Kaiser from a can (brewed by Martens in Belgium) next to it for scientific purposes and this one was still more enjoyable - though admittedly both ended up down the drain for the most part.

Idiosynkrasie (6540) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2015
1000ml bottle [Thank you very much, Aziz, for further allotment of the West African Coast]. Clear golden colour with small to average, frothy, diminishing, white head. Grainy, strawy aroma, slightly muggy, a touch of horse dung. Taste is dry, strawy, bitter hoppy, slightly mineral. Inside the area of the expectable.

omhper (23728) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2010
Bottled, thanks Jeppe! Clear golden, minimal head. Aroma of nail polish remover and cardboard. Sweet and light bodied with sloppy syrupy mouthfeel. Papery finish with low bitterness.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2010

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2010
Bottled@hotelroom tasting with omhper & DJMonarch. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma rubber, chemicals, cardboard and some grains. Flavour is quite much the same. Rather harsh and not too pleasant.
