2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A Mes rate: bottle at home with The Cad.
Thanks to our lovely landlady in Kortrijk. How many times have we been superbly looked after in Belgium. A measure of the people for sure. A very straight forward Belgian style pils but clearly a little better than plenty other offerings of a similar style from this country. A little dull as expected but thereís a pleasant enough bitter finish and itís very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 Bottle from our B&B landlady in Kortrijk. Its a golden lager, thin white head. Itís an ok pils with some very tasty hop on the finish. Middle malts are a bit poorish, but I like the bite on the finish, really quite aggressive. Straight forward, but tasty and refreshing enough. 3/5 Re-rate, a whole crate from Dranken Pauwels. Love it. Refreshing. My fridge beer for a beer to drink when I come home from work. Simple, good to look at, some hop, lemon and soap on aroma. Some toasted pale malt in mouth, some noble hop bitterness on the finish. Good.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Birerria Paradiso in DC. Bright orange with a creamy head. Straightforward stuff, quite a creamy drinkable body. Filtered, not so far off from a Stella or Jupiler. Nice mellow yeast characteristics though. Borderline macro, OK.

(Draught@HBF2008) Pale golden with a small head. Grassy, lightly malty aroma with some toffee. Grassy-hoppy, pale-malty flavor with a dry finish. Almost medium body with soft carbonation. A decent, light and grassy pils with nothing very special or interesting.
