COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BEL PILS is one of the most traditional of pils beers, mainly on account of the high quality of the hops used, which give the beer a characteristic aroma and taste.

Clear golden colour. An above average commercial lager, though really nothing special

gegwilson (1157) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours pale golden with a fluffy white head. Not a huge amount of flavour to speak of. A little citrus and slight metallic notes. Nothing special.

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2014
Moortgat’s standard lager (I wouldn’t personally classify this as a classic Pilsener). Typical golden blonde colour with firm snow white head, crisp and clean taste, malty sweetishness and grassy hops, with a finish that is admittedly more hoppy bitter than average. One of the better ’pils’ beers in Belgium but still nothing to get too excited about.

jice (98) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 18, 2014
Bière de soif, rien d’exceptionnel pourtant de cette grande brasserie. Point positif sur la mousse qui tient dans la durée.

mikske79 (1242) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 2, 2014
Een van de betere pilsbieren die er te vinden Zijn in België. Niet de beste maar zeker geen tegenvaller

maledictum (613) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUL 10, 2014
Pee yellow. Has a white fluffy head. Not much aroma. Maybe some malts. Is watery and malty in the flavour. Sweet and quickly dying on the palate.

pintbypint (2603) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
On tap at Sugarbowl. Golden and clear, ncie creamy white cap. Nose has grass and grains. Light taste of grains and grass. Finishes dry. Slightly boring pilsner.

Maakun (589) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2014
Tap. Clear light golden with big white head. Light malts, slight dry fruitiness and hint of bitter in the finish. Medium dry feel. Drinkable pils. Not too sweet but nice crisp and fresh.

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 8, 2014
Gigantic white head over a light golden body. Duvel like and admittedly perfect for a pilsner. Hard to justify giving lower than a 5. As expected everything fails from the aroma inwards though. Canned vegetables, cheap grains, characterless, metallic and even some alcoholic sweetness. When cold it drinks well, but mostly because it is tasteless. When warming it’s a rough yet luckily little astringency, coined with a soft and more pleasant aftertaste of balancing malts and herbal hop. Well, hop extract. Bit the worst of Belgian pilsner, but that doesn’t say anything. Good aftertaste, excellent looks, yet off putting aroma. (25cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus SPdC)

Beerhunter111 (7390) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, hopfig, Heu, Geschmack malzig bitter, getreidig, blumig.
