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.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 17, 2008
Bottled 25cl. It pours a pale golden beer with a beautiful, nicely lasting white rocky head. Hops and melon in the nose. Surprisingly sweet taste. Hops and melon showing up. Beautiful lacing. Full bodied for a pilsener. Not all that bitter. Sweet finish with a hint of honey, oranges and hops. A very fruity, full bodied and sweet pilsener.

renffisch (869) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2008
draught @ the white horse. smells of oat cookies. Looks stunning. Finely carbonated, clearest straw yellow, creamy perfectly white head. beautiful condition. Actually found myself staring at my pint, due to the lovely dance of teeny-weeny little bubbles which kept a lovely thick creamy head and resulted in a gorgeous lace round the glass as i drank it. Very delicate hoppy pils. very true, and excellent example of this style. all round and none of the ingredients stick out. just like it should be.

JoeinDahlem (1396) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2008
Solid, thirst-slaking pils. Draft. Pours pale gold, bright an clear with lots of rising bubbles. Nice, white, persistent and fluffy head. Light, grainy nose with faint grassy-hops. Tastes grainy and lightly malty, with a refreshing, mild bitterness carried on average carbonation. Definitely a notch or two above Stella, Maes and the other local big boys.

TheBeerGod (5690) - 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.

imdownthepub (11965) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2008
Bottled, pasteurised, 250ml. Xmas present. Yellow straw, carbonated white head. Aromatic hops lead the way in to a reasonable Pils. Light, some cardboard, but lemony, citric. Light base malt. It’s fine.
