nuplastikk (6514) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2008
500ml bottle. Golden yellow color, a little hazy. Aroma is mild and a little sweet. Taste is reminiscent of an Asian crap lager, but has much more quality ingredients and drinkability than the genuine article. Creamy and subtle, this is a nice standard lager. Sort of an oddity among Belgian imports, a tad underrated.

rocbyter (2186) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Strong corn and malts aroma with a slight amount of caramel. Hazy golden color with a small white head. Mildly tangy taste in the beginning developing into more malt flavor in the finish.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 8, 2008
Nondescript light orange. Nondescript lager aroma. Tastes like a lager, but a non-descript one at that. Finish? Yes, I did finish it. Why do good brewers like van Steenberge waste their time on nonsense like this?

imdownthepub (15526) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2007
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. From Marche de Natalie, Bouillon, Belgium Pale gold with white head. Quite a hard corny aroma which follows into a sweet malty lager, highly carbonated. Some fruitiness and a hop note to save it a little.

Bought some at 50p ($1) a bottle from my local branch of the Consumers Champion. I was ripped off :-( Undrinkable.

1.6
rauchbier (3949) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle, from Rythym & Booze, Brigg. Faintly hazy gold, fluffy but shortlived white head, nasty aromas of sweet starchiness, quite soft in the mouth with more nastiness from the sweet starch which is balanced (?!) by a harsh dry bitterness, short fruity dry finish.

3.1
Fin (11069) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2007
Bottle, Dodgy Deli’, Cowley Road, Oxford Poured golden with a largeish white head. Tasted smooth, creamy, some vanilla, tastes quite light and sweet. A much better beer than I expected and the perfect accompniment to my curry.

bhensonb (15976) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Aroma of malt, yeast, and light, faint, maybe grassy, hop. Slightly hazy lemon gold color with a substantial white head. Medium bodied. Hints of lemon and other citrus. Moderate carbonation. Sturdy malt character, but far from sicky sweet. Decent bitter in the finish. Maybe a hint of citrus sour in the back of the mouth. This is surprisingly good stuff. That from an ale drinker. If Bud turned into this, America would rule the beer world (except for Czecho).

locarboy (129) - USA - MAY 30, 2007
50 cl bottle. poured golden with a big bubbley head. not very complex. can taste a bready grain with subtle citrus and floral notes. yep, hops are there, but not very distiguished. i thought that a belgian would be better...you know, given that duval and all of those abbey ales are so terrific. won’t buy again at over $3.

Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Bottled. Poured a clear bright golden with a towering cap of loose white head. Aroma picked up a fair dose of bready character with light spices, lemon, and nice floral notes. Flavor found sweet breadiness at the core with pleasant and mild floral bitterness eminating outward... some floral and very dry grassy notes round out the finish.. certainly solid for the style. Light-bodied but thick on flavor across the middle.. dry lemony finish. Thought this was tasty and every bit worth the $0.99 I paid for it!
