3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I wonder how much of beer reviewing is context - I had this beer on draft at a great cafe in a country town in Luxembourg, and I thought it was pretty good. Reminded me of a Pilsner Urquell imitator, and a decent one at that.
It offered a rich gold color and a thick fluffy white head with good staying power. It was the first beer that was clear and had a brilliant body color that I had in Belgium. Tasted a lot like Pilsner Urquel to me - lots of Saaz-hop flavor. I had two with lunch, and they hit the spot.
I would recommend this beer. I had it on draft in Redange, Luxembourg.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, pours medium gold color with a nice lacing white head. Smells like very light malt and nothing else. Almost no scent. Flavor is more malty than bitter with a slow mellow finish. Light bodied and an easy drinker.
