Alengrin (3684) - BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2015
Bulgarian pale lager from a plastic 2 l bottle with plastic screw cap. Medium thick but not very stable, snow white, coarse, lightly lacing head over a clear orangey ’old gold’ coloured beer, darker than average for the style, with vivid sparkling. Simple aroma of sourish grains, white bread crust, wet cardboard, soaked cereals, grass, cornbread. Neutral onset, a bit minerally with medium carbo, grain sweet with a touch of old cookies and corn, smooth mouthfeel but not as thin or metallic as is often the case in this style; finish has a late, brief grassy hop bitterness but a vague plastic-like chemical wryness too. Very average at best, the sourish graininess becomes a bit bothersome in the end, certainly if you have to ingest 2 l of the stuff, but still a fairly drinkable standard lager.

Rhombic (62) - SPAIN - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle. Once it’s opened, it releases a strong skunky odour, fairly off-putting. The taste is also greatly characterised by this particular smell, together with hoppy notes. The palate is relatively watery.

Abio (1816) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2015
Golden coloured brew, OK sized head. To simple brew, nothing inside that makes you want more.

stevoj (3123) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 11, 2015
500 ml bottle from Trees Bonne’s Cuisine. Expecting the worst, so I was pleasantly surprised at the flavor. Pours out with a nice fluffy head, white bread and asparagus for the aroma. Taste is pure cereal grain, wet paper and a hint of school paste. Flat finish. Enjoy ice cold for better taste.
