Towey1989 (3270) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle at Pabna, Leek. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of rice, some grain, a little banana and slight herbal hops.
Taste of soft bready malt, grain, some banana, subtle spice and slight herbal hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, grainy bitterness in the finish with a subtle cardboard aftertaste. The hint of banana and herbs in this threw me a little but it’s still a generic, Indian restaurant lager. Ok. Cimbasso (1007) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2015
Sampled from a 33cl bottle. Orange/gold colour with a white head. Soft carbonation. Sweetish malts and little hop taste. A slight hint of bubblegum. Rather thin and bland. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle in Brussels. Orangy body with slight head. Nose is sweet, too sweet, of fruits and sugar and bananas. Taste also fruity with lots of bananas. Bitter in the finish. Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2015
Svergae head. Light yellow. Shallow aroma, some maltiness but not much. Thin and slightly sweet. Works as a thirstkiller on a really hot day. Not much more to say. tderoeck (10195) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2015

Note: alas no country tick, Jon! :p
Clear orange beer, small creamy off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, bit malty, fruity, sugar, banana. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: lots of banana, bit yeasty, sweet touch, more banana, citrus. Aftertaste: sweet, banana, yeast, slightly bitter, more banana. You would think they used Westmalle yeast to brew this beer. Very weird...
Warm golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, skunky hops, bubble gum. Sweet malty flavour, corn. Sweet finish. Not nice.77ships (11051) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
(from 33cL bottle @ Leuven Innovation. Thanks for sharing, tderoeck)
Thanks for sharing! Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ Leuven Innovation Beer Festival. Clear amber,… Nose is hugely disgusting, smells like insecticide, appalling nasty murky herbal,… Taste is syrupy insecticide, hugely sticky, horrible rotting herbal,… Syrupy body,… Truly awful, revolting beer. sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle sample @ Leuven Beer Innovation 2015, shared with the RB Belgian crew. Thanks Tderoeck for sharing.
Cuivrée, col blanc.
Arôme malté assez plaisant avec un petit bouquet caramel et pâle en rétro. Malt houblonné est léger et fleuri-citronné.
Palais malt cara, pâle, petite note biscuitée tirant vers qcq esters. Houblonné modéré ajoutant une balance citronnée. Il y a pire comme bière ou alors l’effet des bonnes bières de ce festival fait passer cette pale lager pour mieux qu’elle ne goûte. Alengrin (5722) - BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
Courtesy of tderoeck. Apparently conceived as a beer from Bangladesh or India, but, much like e.g. Cobra, brewed in England for the many Asian immigrants there - too bad, would have been an interesting country tick otherwise. Thin and unstable, off-white head, pale golden blonde colour with not much fizz, cristal clear. Aroma of rice, sweat, iron and burning rubber, unpleasant. Sweet and sourish graininess in the mouth, thin, weird sweet (industrial) apple cider accent not fitting in too well, soft carbo (undercarbonated in fact, but in this case the fact that the bottle had been opened a while before, explains everything, I assume); thin and clearly metallic body, rice flavour, straightforward with almost no hops for balance; I hardly detected any bitterness at all in this one. Very unpleasant in every way but still interesting to taste, I had never heard of it. Beerhunter111 (22513) - P´Castle, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2015
Klares goldenes Bier mit einer geringen weißen schaumkrone. Geruch süß malzig, viel Getreide. Geschmack getreidig süß, wässrig malzig, langweiliges Lager.
