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.

TheBeerGod (5568) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2008
Draft at Max’s 72 Hour Belgian Beer Fest. Clear gold. Hoppy, floral notes with biscuity malts and grassy hops. Soft lemon comes through too. Taste is more grass/straw, flowery hops, buttered biscuits, faint honey and light lemon. Moderate carbonation and a medium overall feel. Typical Belgian pils but not too bad.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 2007-09-21, draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007 as Vanuxeen Belgo Pils, 5-2-5-2-10=24
Light blond color. Very common Pils, a bit sweetish.

Blond color. A simple Pilsner, but with a light fresh Saaz aroma and flavor; just too weak at the end.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2007
(Bottled, BBE 06/2007) Clear, paleish golden with a smallish, lightly lacy head. Aroma of corny malt and cardboard. Corny-malty flavor with mushroom hints and cardboard. Light to medium-bodied, slightly foamy, sweetish and a bit unclean palate. I guess the bottle was way past its prime condition (only a month in time, but stored on a warm store shelf).
