330ml bottle, poured into Stone snifter. A: Pale golden, clear, medium sized head which resembled bath bubbles and didn’t hang around for too long. S: Floral noble hop aroma. T: Hints of sweetish apple balanced out by a slightly bitter wheaty finish. M: Medium body, not quite as carbonated as a typical Euro lager, but went down quite well. O: This was pretty decent, had more in it’s locker than a Euro style lager. A kind of expensive premium brand beer served by pricey Italian restaurants.

Keg at The Windham Arms, Sheringham, Norfolk. Pale gold with fizzed head. Heavy carbonization here, gassy with wet paper towel notes. Thin in the close. Not pleasant.

An ok beer overall. Pours an ugly clear yellow/grey. Smells of berries and malt. Taste is similar, blueberry, strawberry and malt. Had in the bottle.

Heklder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en niet al te krachtig. Standaard bier niet echt slecht maar ook niet bijzonder. Gedronken in restaurant Lalina in Zaventem.

Dorata pallida, schiuma bianca poco persistente. Aroma di mais, leggerissimo malto d'orzo. Al palato si invertono le parti, leggero mais e malto d'orzo, finale lievemente erbaceo. Corpo leggero, mediamente carbonata.

Dorata limpida, schiuma bianca di buona persistenza. Aroma di malto d'orzo ed erbaceo, lieve caucciù e lievissime note citriche. Al palato sempre malto d'orzo e note citriche, finale erbaceo misto a leggero caucciù. Corpo leggero, ben carbonata, svolge il proprio compito senza infamia né lode.

Geruch süßlich und nach Honig. Diese Note findet sich auch geschmacklich wieder. Dabei sorgt eine gute Carbonisierung für einen unerwartet runden Pilsgeschmack. Die leichte Bitternote harmonisiert mit dem süßlichen Aroma, was aber nicht vorschmeckt.

En let humlet øl. Den har en fin smag af nødder. En let øl, måske ikke lige til den danske julemiddag, men til en let frokost er den nok god.

En skarp humlet øl. Den er nok lige rigelig bitter i eftersmagen til mig. Ellers en god rund smag til at starte med.

A fresh larger with a nice head and a light bitterness. Quite like it a step above Morreti or Nastro Azzuro but nothing too special. Easily matches the german macros though.

Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso indirizza all’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma si forma con bollicine medie. L’aspetto del liquido è limpido, a bollicine medie. La carbonazione è media, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è giallo dorato carico. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Il finale è lungo, secco, e pulito. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di mais, orzo, cereali, fiori e frutta secca.

I bought this beer in Domodossola. I drank it tonight in my flat in Lausanne. In my point of view, this beer is better than the green one. The body is brown copper, average carbonation, white foam. The taste is refresing, malty, corn, some hop, alcohol, few cynamon, average for the style.

Ein Schnapper von Leergut Bochum. Nichtsestotrotz recht trinkbar, zwar dünn und leicht getreidig, aber die Blumigkeit und die Süffigkeit aus dem HIntergrund machen so einiges wieder wett. Durchschnitt mit Klasse.

It is not the best beer. I bought it in Domodossola. For a Belgian beer, it is missing something. The taste is boring, sweet with the malt but there is not a pleasant sensation, watery and almost no hop. The body is yellow lager and the carbonation is watery.

Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Cheers! Pours clear, very pale yellow with a creamy, white head. Papery aroma, with light doughy touches. Light sweet flavour with a little lemon, paper, dried out dough. Light bodied with average carbonation. Drying finish, with lingering paper notes. Mediocre.

Bottle. a pale straw colour with little to no lacing. Taste. Pleasant herbal flavours on entry, with slightly sweet lemon flavours backed by a mild bitterness. Overall. what i’d expect from a lager, very watery and mild tasting, but certainly has something to offer, quite good for a mainstream lager with characteristics i would expect from a pilsener.

BB 12.06.16. Poured a clear pale golden colour with 5mm of white foam that diminished quickly. Laced poorly. Carbonation low and very fine. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste of semi-sweet malt and a tart bitterness. Light body, a bit thin. Smooth and crisp while cold but develops a tartness and sourness on the finish.
