ladnewton (1849) - London, Greater London, - NOV 14, 2012
On tap at the Blue Diamond, Anderlecht, Belgium (now operating as an Italian restaurant), 13th November 2012. Gold with thin white fully lacing foam. Light hoppy aroma with leafy "pils" grassiness. Hoppy in-mouth with grass and citric flavours alongside light herbs. Grassy/herby finish. Powerful carbonation and light body.

TedE (1114) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2016
500ml can into glass. 5%. Pale amber beer with thin film of suds. Light carbonation. Smells of tin and cardboard, typical euro-lager. Sweet, doughy with slightly sour finish. A beer youve had 1000 times under 100 different names.

vinivini (1586) - BELARUS - OCT 3, 2016
Can at 5.0% ABV. Clear golden. Huge rocky head. Stays as airy lace. Clean malty aroma with somw spicy hop. Light body. Thin to oily palate. Bittersweet flavour. Grainy maltiness, grassy light to medium bitterness. Hoppy finish. Very drinkable. Simple. Well-balanced. Decent lagers like that dont bore me.

erickok (5629) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2016
Simple sweet euro lager, not much to say about it. Its seemingly devoid of any hop whatsoever and I dont like the certainly rushed fermentation either, not clean enough, no character, no smoothness. Youre better off with the big brands. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

DylansDad (606) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 20, 2016
Generic lager with corn, hay, vegetable oil etc etc, but lifted above the others (ever so slightly) by an ever so slightly cleansing pepperiness and metallicularity at the back. On a scale of "puke" to "wow!" this rates as a definite lower-end "meh", but isnt drain-pour.

Bottles/tap. Just a Pilsener. All the standard stuff you all know. Just a entry for the record.
