A clear gold brew with good head of foam and retention. Malty nose with some balancing spicy hop bitterness. Sweetish malt followed by some grain and spicy crisp bitterness from the hops. I especially love the finish; maybe the best part of this session. Medium body and carbonation. A nice Pilsner of the German kind brewed in Belgium.

Kirkas kullankeltainen olut melko pienellä ja nopeasti häviävällä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu maltainen, viljainen ja makeahko, ehkä aavistuksen hedelmäinen. Maku maltainen, keskiasteisen hiilihappoinen. Ihan toimiva lager, noussee aavistuksen normikeppanan yläpuolelle

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.

Bottlred. HAzy light yellow in colour, minor white head. The aroma is bitter with malty hints. The flavour is bitter with a malty aftertaste, quite watery.

A pale lager brewed in Belgium with an Indian inspired name. Sounds like a recipe for success. The aroma is dominated by the rice, quite sharp, with a touch of hay. Some metallic bitterness that seems typical of pale lager, at least the ones that make some attempt at having flavour. A bti overcarbonated, but again that’s typical of the style. Long lasting finish, but that’s not good as it’s all metallic. It’s probably best to keep chugging this down while your palate is still saturated, because then you don’t notice the sharpness as much!

Purchased at StateLine liquors in Maryland. I really don’t have a lot to say about this beer except that it is predominantly average at best. The aroma reminded me of straw or a cornfield. In an attempt to generate a powerful head I tried to pour with this intention, yet there was a minimal head that disappated in seconds. No lacing was visible. The color was a cloudy gold hue with no clarity. The taste was similar to a japanese or indian beer with a slight tart sweetness. It was not a bad beer, but I was hoping for a good beer, which is wasn’t either. I could see this beer being a nice acqaintance with a spicy asian or indian dish.

Bottle: What can one say?? As if the market for lame, golden lagers wasn’t cornered here’s another. There’s nothing new; clear pale gold with a big flffy white head. Slightly spicy metalic corn aroma, but maybe I’m just imagining things because there really isn’t much in this department. Predictably the flavour is similar - weak, decocted malt flavours with a touch of spice in the background. Yawn... Thankfully the Indian food I had ordered arrived not long after I started this. The Aloo Chop was particularly excellent. mmm :-)

Pours pale golden and clear. Aroma is somehow disgusting. Taste is mild, grassy and boring.
