FatPhil (15150) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 21, 2013
330ml bottle - shared by Anna and Marduk from 6llesummer
Pale, fizzy. Mild goats cheese aroma, some simple bready malts, and a hint of baby vomit. Nimbu masala brings out just a hint of that in the taste. But otherwise its a weak thin light maltiness. Thin biting noble hops. A touch drying resininess. Very watery palate. As dull as dishwater.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2013
65cl bottle from some grocery store in Nice, France. Pours a crystal clear, yellow-gold colored body with a finger-width, foamy and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet, honeyish pale malts with some grain, touches of hay, and a light fruit note. Flavor is thin, grainy pale malts with a touch of honey sweetness, a light hay, and just a hint of fruit. Finishes clean and dry with a very light bitterness before leaving a short aftertaste. Light body and a soft, somewhat active, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty basic pale lager. Not terrible, but not very interesting.

bartlebier (3728) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 7, 2013
65cl fliptop bottle from the "bio corner" @Leclerc Verdun. - Typically malty French lager which sadly muffles all quality natural ingredients and specifically characteristic natural hops (pepper, grass, some lemon) under almost chewy layers of it seems poorly ground malts. Kronenbourgs self-righteously organic nephew?

erickok (5695) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2013
Golden clear body and bubbly white body. Light malty, farmhouse yeast, not very fruity, grass hops but only little. Simple Belgian style blond with very mild taste. Doesnt quite stack up to the Belgian originals but an extra point for being organic. Unexciting. (50cl bottle from Carrefour in Tours)

Enjoyit (3790) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2013
Clear golden of color with a white head. An aroma of malt, sweets, hops and citrus. A flavor of malt, hops, grass and weak bitterness.

Travlr (23020) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Hazy pale yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of grass, straw. Taste is bitter citrus and fruit. Not bad.

markas101 (2386) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2012
25 cl bottle, Paris, France via Monoprix. Medium gold, thin head. Faint spice aroma, some honey, fairly carbonated with a spicy finish. Better than a standard French lager but, perhaps not worth the premium.

gripweed57 (1464) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2012
650 ml flip top bottle. Pale straw gold color topped by a large bubbly white head. Grainy malt nose has hints of hay and lemon peel. Soft fruity malt palate is thin to the taste. Some citrus hops, but very little. Light and refreshing, with a brief dry finish.

kaziopiwosz (384) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Good balanced bitter palate. Bitter taste. White and thick foam, stays for 90 seconds. Dark-golden colour, almost ideal.
