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.

zvsn (899) - ISRAEL - OCT 30, 2014
On-tap at Porter & Sons. Clear golden yellow with a big frothy head. Aroma of grainy malt with some earthy hops. Taste is pretty much the same, light malty sweetness, grains , grass, some lemon with a bit rough bitterness. Thin body, dry-ish finish. Quite dull but drinkable.

gegwilson (1801) - 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 (2939) - 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.
