This beer poured a very light yellow color with a almost no head. Appearance ponts a sold 1 so far. It smells like corn, hay, and generic dish detergent. So far this is in the toilet. The flavor has a slight yeasty presence. The taste is quite dry with some lemons, whipped cream, creamed corn, and buttered popcorn. Well overall its not too bad. Nothing I would seek out though

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.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - APR 7, 2006
Somewhat dissapointing. I was expecting something really enjoyable but what I got was much, much less. I got a ton of corn in the nose with a soapyness that really unpleasing. The appearance was a nice clear, yellow color. The slight harshness of the beer was not enjoyable at all, and the flavor corn really didn’t sit right with me. A WELL below average Belgian lager. No thanks.

Pours bright gold with a mostly receding off-white head. Notes of sweet pale malt, cookie, tart bread yeast, light herbs. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Very sweet and sugary beer that had a bit of stickiness to it but not too much. Was a good palate cleanser for the Indian food I was eating.

rocbyter (1958) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Strong corn and malts aroma with a slight amount of caramel. Hazy golden color with a small white head. Mildly tangy taste in the beginning developing into more malt flavor in the finish.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 7, 2008
500 ml bottle. Fizzy, clear yellow with a white head. Very cereal nose, sweet corn, bready. Flavor is sweet grain, a bit of floral hop, and precious little else. This. Sucks. So Belians CAN make a shitty beer. Who knew? Swilly in a big, macro kinda way. Watery and weak.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one pours pale yellow gold with a 2 1/2 finger thick head. Aroma of sweet malt, citrus, yeast. Flavor weak, sweet malts, carbonated, slight bitter finish. Not great, but drinkable.

jaymobrown (1746) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Straw color; faint golden color. Small head. A sweet aroma. A sour mash, bittersweet flavor. Hmm.... Fairly decent. Nothing to go out of your way for.

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.
