It is difficult to compare Pilsener with Abbeybeer, or others. They are made for different consumption, and arent ment to enriche a soul but just to take the thurst awy. A good Pilsener, not a really commercial, not bad at all

Van t vat. Blond bier met goeie witte wandklevende schuimkraag. Geur: mout zoetig. Smaak: mout zoetig met een bescheiden maar goede hopbitterheid. Koolzuurprikkel en mondgevoel ok. Afdronk: bitterig. En van de betere Belgische pilsen.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 Bottle from our B&B landlady in Kortrijk. Its a golden lager, thin white head. Its 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.

93/20 was the rating when I found this page.... yes, that means that even if this beer scores in the 93rd percentile of ALL pilsners, it only ranks in the 20th percentile of all beers! Oh, those poor pilsners.... are they all really that bad? Cmon, who doesnt like a good pils once in awhile? This pours with a painfully clear yellow-green body and just a small bed of head on top. The aroma is bread, perfumy hops, wet malts. The taste has a nice mix of sourdough bread and hops, very smooth, good mouthfeel. Like drinking a fresh loaf of European bread. Its good, for sure; does it beat some of the heavier brews? Sadly, not.

Pale yellow colour. Aroma is herby, malty and some sweetness. Taste is a little malty, some sweetness and a gentle bitterness at the end. Well balanced. An easy-drinking pilsener, as one expects from a pilsener.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2009
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.

7th March 2010. On tap somewhere in Brussels - nice way to finish a long days drinking and another good recommendation from Harrisoni - pale lager master! Cheers Ian! Pale gold beer. Light crisp palate. Very light lagerish malt - just a pleasant hint of hop bitterness. Clean and refreshing light lager!
