2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottled) Clear, deep golden with a smallish, lacy head. Slightly sweet, malty aroma of a typical lager, with some faint hops and vegetables, plus a strange sour-vomity accent. Toffee-malty flavor with vegetably hints, and practically no hops. Medium-bodied, slicky and quite low-carbonated palate. An ale is not necessarily better than a lager - here’s one living proof... A poor pils in an ale clothing.

From bottle at 12de Vilvordia BierProefFestival.Hazy amber with a medium, but stable head. Grassy, slightly herbal hop aroma with some sweetness as well. Mild malty flavours, mainly sweet, but still balanced. Quite boring.

Bottled, label said 5.2% ABV. Floral but one dimensional aroma. Golden color, white head, good lace. Floral flavors as well, hint of pear, light bitterness. Sparkling like cola, bit watery. Plain and clean.

Bottle. Clear golden ale with a medium white head. A malty aroma. Flavor is balanced, not to sweet malt and not so much more. A straight forward pale and balanced ale that’s OK, but soon forgotten.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 Bottled at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. A clear, golden beer with an off-white head. The nose is too grainy, yet it is balanced. The flavor is grassy at start, with hay and grains, but for once it is in a quite pleasant way. Medium body. A boring beer. Rating: 5-3-5-3-11-2.7 (070301)
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body with an off-white head. The nose is fruity, more Belgian than British, with banana, some citrus and spices, as well as some yeast. A grainy note as well. The flavor is much the same, but more on the grainy and malty side. A bit thin in the mouth, with Belgian fruityness and spices. Medium body. Nice fruity finish with a grainy touch. A bit on the grainy side, but still refreshing and quaffable. (080504)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Golden coloured. Clear. Dense off white head. A bit canny and metallic aroma. Has some herbal and sweet notes. Falvour is sweet and fruity. Loads of apples. A light flowery note. Is a bit light bodied. Has a light herbal bitterness in the end. A bit bland and uninteresting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught Fully clear copper-gold, very fine dense yellowish head, leaving classical lace. A strange nose with cooked veggies from the mussel pot; overlying more habitual sweet-malty notes. Mossy, too. Rather sweet, even portlike flavour (for a young blond beer!) but fading away fast, leaving a very neutral to sweet malt flavour. Precious little specific aroma’s, even when (again!) the cold isn’t helping. Light to medium bodied, quite slick. Too fade for my preferences.
