andrewje41 (3476) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Here is a beer that I have seen consistently over the years, and never actually tried. Its like a movie that always looked good, but not quite good enough to dedicate the 90 minutes of life to sit down and watch. I must be bored. Pours a copper color with a thin fizz head. Near absent, apple grain aroma. Flavor is metallic up front, and throughout for me, with subtle grains. No flavor here that really appeals to me. Cant get over the metallic. Palate is consistent with sucking on a penny. Weird beer, but far from terrible I suppose.

cervmagpt (753) - PORTUGAL - MAR 7, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 24B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 22 19:12. AROMA: moderate malt aroma with a grainy-neutral and slight sweet note. medium fruity esters with notes of pear drops. Slight peppery and perfumy phenols. APPEARANCE: deep gold color and translucent. off-white to ivory head (medium-low), with medium-low retention. TASTE: medium-low grainy-sweet (almost neutral) balanced with fruity esters of the same intensity (pears). low bitterness with a semi-dry to dry finish. PALATE: medium-low body with medium-low carbonation. no astringency and faint creaminess. OVERALL: a belgian pale ale within the style with a somewhat balance between an almost neutral grainy-sweet malt and fruity esters. it would improve with more bitterness.

Pours clear golden amber with limited white head. Barley malt and hops combined in this flavour that is a little heavier than one would expect. Not too complex though. Decent enough

ROSE1962 (286) - POLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Barwa herbaciana, piana biała, dość szybko opada i pozostaje biały pierścień. W aromacie nuty chmielowe. W smaku słodowe z nutami chmielowymi, goryczka na niskim poziomie. Gdzieś w tle majaczą nuty przyprawowe.

Jultsu (860) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - FEB 6, 2016
BBE 23-04-2016. Todella hapokas, minimivaahtoinen, kuparinen lagerin olemus. Miedon makea maltaan tuoksu. Hapotettu, makeahko, liukas ljyinen, vetisehk suutuntuma. Aika bleh belgiksi, mutta ihan ok.

budedou (891) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JAN 22, 2016
Amber clear with almost no head. Typical malty-hoppy lager taste, but quite intense. Drinkable, but not too much to enjoy.

eunck (186) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2016
Expensive 0.75L bottle with champagne cork. Clear light amber with a big and fine white head. Maybe its the design, but it seems the beer does taste somehow noble with a very pleasant soft and smooth palate and very refreshing with high carbonation at the same time. However it does all this without any outstanding aromas, which leaves me wondering why this is supposed to be such a specialty.

Antonio369 (190) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2016
25cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Poured a nice amber gold with a very small white head that disappeared quite fast. Aromas of roasted malt, walnuts, honey. Taste is a continuation of the aroma with vanilla, caramel, honey, nuts, toasted bread, some fruits. Light body with a short lasting but smooth bittersweet finish. Overall a very decent sweet, malty brew but for a top fermented ale it just lacks body. Clearly produced as a commercial, easy drinkable ale that you can enjoy every day.
