JorisPPattyn (7820) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2013
Draught Good white head, shards of lace, fully hazy orange-yellow beer. Creamy nose, rainwater, spices, bananaester. Bitter, hoppy (non-USA hops), bitter grains, just a tad soapy. Quite slick, rather medium bodied, gristslickness, yeast-filled. Certainly not bad, but I’ve had better ’big’ Pilsner.

gnoff (7687) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2013
Draught at Ölrepubliken during the tap takeover, on January 21, 2013.
Hazy pale golden color, fluffy white head. A bit sweet, mainly bitter taste, some hay, also alcohol. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Hay, grassy, grainy scent.

sebletitje (6602) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2013
Draft @ Moeder Lambic Italian Beerfest ’13. Thanks 77ships. Dorée opaque, col épais crémeux blanc. Arôme est complexe et rappelant le pamplemousse et mangue, bouquet de grains avec ce côté très pils qui devient nettement plus distinct une fois que la bière est à t° ambiante. Palais de grains, carapils sur un fini sec et agréablement bien houblonné. Pointe d’épices, sur un fini sec et poussiéreux avec un palais subtile de fruité agrumes et tropical. Mon type de pils impériale.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2013
Draught at Ölrepubliken. Cloudy yellow color with medium sized head. Green hops and sulphur in nose. Fresh German hop profile in flavour with pretty big bitterness. This is exactly what one can expect from a hopped up lager without flaws. Good quality.

77ships (3604) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2013
Draft @ CML Italian Beer Festival 2013. Hazy citrus look with a collapsing fluffy & creamy white head. Nose is lots of fruity citrus hops, flowers, sweet malts, mellow yeast, more & more fruity citrus goodness in non-sour & non-particularly bitter way,… Slight white bread & very fruity sweetness, lots of citrus, flowers, very fruity, serious malt backbone, light sweet herbs, touch of grass,… Very easy to drink with slightly malty body. Fits into the Lager IIPA category very nicely. No idea about the other low ratings, I liked it quite a bit.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 4, 2013
Golden, misty body and pillowy head. Citric hops,bready, clean yeast. Bitter base, modern hops, simple base. Carbonated palate, but fitting the style. Pale yet present malt base, bit too crisp even. Nice for the start of the evening. (75cl bottle from Dranken Geers)

MrHangover (2455) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours a hazy golden beer with a massive soapy white head on top. Aroma is grainy, herbal, cheesy. Light malts in the background. Flavor is medium bitter, some cheesy presences are detected somehow. Light characters of cheese crackers, which is quite strange in a beer. Aftertaste is medium bittersweet, overal an average, strange beer with interesting flavors.
