Strykzone (6860) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Light golden color with a medium sized soapy head. Interesting label on the bottle reminds one of the influences of India. Aroma is subtle but grass dominates. Saaz hops seem to be evident in the aroma but not in the flavor. Tartness is noteworthy and some honey can be tasted. It is slightly bitter, as well making a tart, sweet, bitter combination. I give points for that and anything in a pale lager that is unusual should be relished.

Hermod (6688) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 25, 2015
50cl bottle. Base Camp, Helsinki. Clear golden, thin white head. Sweet corn aroma, not much else. Flavor has sweet malt, corn, some metal notes. Well, maybe works with the spicy food, would not want to drink this just for leisure

berkshirejohn (6183) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2008
[500ml bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames.] Deep straw with a soft billowing white head; aroma of yeast and coriander; soft dry flavours with lots of floral hops; definitely a Belgian influence. Very pleasant.

Suttree (6145) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Bright, clear gold, with a sturdy, foamy head. Nice clean, grainy aroma, with a hint of understated sweetness. Clean and crisp, withnotes of pepper, grass and maybe mint, although may have been the result of the chapstick I had used earlier. Spritzy and fizzy to the end. Nicely bitter.

vyvvy (5980) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Pours pale yellow / gold with bubbly off-white head. The aroma has light grain, corn and light butteriness. Medium body with medium carbonation. The taste starts with pale malt, some corn and light spicy hops. The finish is pretty much the same. This may not be bad for a pale lager, but it is ridiculously overpriced and mind-numbingly boring.

wlajwl (5967) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Has the aroma and flavor of a bready/grassy pilsner style lager but a bit rough around the edges. Not bad really, Belgian pale lagers typically are no better than any other pale lagers because there made for the same reason, this was decent compared.

thedm (5887) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was marked 06GE and poured a large sized foamy head with a frothy top of fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated light yellow-orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was slightly astringent and lagerish. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish then faded. The mild thin flavor contained notes of malt and hops.

reebtogi (5851) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
500mL bottle poured straw color with average white head settling quickly to spotted lacing. Aromas of bread and hay and a hint of yeast. Taste is lightly sweet with an undesirable hoppy finish. Carbonation and body are decent. Overall, something to drink on a hot summer day, as it goes down pretty easy.

nuplastikk (5840) - 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.

jgb9348 (5823) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Golden coloured pale body with a thin white head (one centimetre) and a million small bubbles rising from the side & bottom of the glass. Aroma of funky old malt, caramel, fruits (apples and apricots) and a dose of alcohol. Light-bodied; Very very mild meaty taste up front with a dose of malt, some light spices and some more odd meaty type flavours at the end. Aftertaste shows some mild malt, a bit of yeast and a light bit of alcohol. Overall, a pretty mild beer - not absolutely horrible, just lacking in many tastes. I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased from Half Time in Poughkeepsie, New York on 11-June-2009, sampled at home in Washington on 23-September-2009.
