2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Well, I got this beer because the guy at the store recommended it. I think he was just trying to get rid of it. I looked at it and saw that it was Belgian, so I figured it couldn’t be too bad, which it isnt, but it isn’t that good either, especially for a Belgian beer. Has a lot of pale lager characteristics, including being pale yellow and fizzy, light bodied, and with minimal malt and hop flavors. It does leave a bit of lace in the glass, which is a bit redeeming. As for flavor, it has a bit of a soft palate biscuit bread thing going on. Hops are faint and spicy. Not bad I guess, but.........alright, I’ve wasted enough words on this mediocre beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma was spicy Saaz hops when first poured. As the beer warmed the aroma became lightly tart with some corn (DMS) and lasting low spicy hops and an earthy presence. The beer poured hazy pale golden with nearly no head at all. The flavor was lightly tart with some caramel and a bit of spicy hops. The flavor was somewhat earthy and had a light corn presence. The body was medium and the carbonation was fairly low. Nothing outstanding about this one, just a boring beer.
500 ml bottle.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml brown bottle. Poured very pale straw colour, long lasting billowy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma reveals grassy hops, also some honeylike sweetness. Flavour is minerally, dry, finishes with a dash of grassy hops flavour, trace bitterness. Body is light and watery. A little stale tasting overall.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Chilled 330ml bottle. I’m liking the golden coloured cap, although I have a feeling it goes downhill from there... Not much to the nose, slight sweet maltiness. Pours clean golden body with sizeable white head and lace. Pale malt flavours, reasonably full body, hint of grassy hops, with an odd sharp dry hint of rice towards the finish which i can’t explain to well, unexpected really. Another drinkable but unremarkable pale lager to the list.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazed straw color with a taller eggshell colored head. Decent lace. Sweet malt cereal and a dry weed/herbal aroma. Dry malt flavor in the start that sweeten slightly though the quaff. Light floral flavors come out in the finish and a mild pepper bite in the linger. Some cardboard in the linger as well. Perhaps a brew for indian food, but there are many lagers like this that would suffice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Starts slightly hoppy and stays that way, mild flavored, could make a good session beer but not as good as their Bière du Boucanier Golden ale. $2.99 for a 500ml bottle from John’s Grocery Iowa City, Ia.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a stubby 500 ml. euro brown bottle with a coded freshness date on the back label.
Poured a clear euro lager golden with a foamy, fluffy white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing, small amount of ringed sticking.
Aromas of cereal grains, yeast and a little grassiness.
Good, if slight fizzy, carbonation and a softly crisp, smooth light bodied mouthfeel.
Bland and boring taste, sweet neutral rice malts, cereal grains that have a slight metallic edge to them, a light spicy, grassy hoppiness and a dry rice and grassy finish.
I didn’t care too much for this lager, but I guess if want to cleanse your palate while eating hot and spicy Indian food, this would do the trick, but so would ice water with a slice of lemon in it. This cost me $4.50 at a Indian/curry restaurant on Delmar St. in U-City/St. Louis.
