3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Café Hollander in Madison, WI, three times, most recently in early July 2016. Served in the proper glass as are all beers at this bar (nice!) Listed at 4.5% alcohol, but I’d have to assume this is the correct beer pending being able to get more info from the bar. At any rate, what I had tasted much more like a real pils, so I suppose it’s also possible this is some different export version or something - or that I’m just easy:). Anyway, it pours a light gold with a pretty decent fluffy head that fizzles away slowly...bready, biscuity aroma, a touch of herbal (thyme) character, pretty inviting...on the tongue it’s mostly moderately sweet biscuity malt, drying out to a reasonably snappy grassy finish...one of the pints I had showed a touch of buttery (diacetyl) unpleasantness on the nose, but it wasn’t hugely problematic, and the other two were just fine. To my taste this comes off as a pretty solid pils, and I’m glad to see it on the bar’s otherwise almost entirely Belgian-style menu.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer has a simple look. The color of the beer is a rather dark golden yellow. The beer is quite clear. Some lovely bubles are rising towards the top. On top of the beer there is a nice layer of rough white foam. It collapses quickly, to leave a minimal drape. The beer smells nice. There is a good sweet malty aroma. There is a rather mild hoppy bitterness in the smell. The taste has a strong hoppy bitterness. The malt flavor is less than the smell. This little contrast is nice. All in all, a great but simple lager beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Served straight from the aluminium bottle. A pale yellow coloured beer, just a metallic hop aroma. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is typical Euro fizz, metallic hop and syrupy malt. Bottle at Camping Porte des Vosges, Bulgnéville, France.

0.5 l can shared with my dad. Pale golden color, no head. No outstanding aroma nor taste. I doesnt have any flaws apart from having any characteristics which could make it bad. Watery, thin,

Bottled, 330ml from a Supermarket in Diekirch, Luxembourg. Pale gold with white head. Quite a thinnish but relatively crisp lager, malty, cereal notes with a backing lime / lemon hint. Nothing overly special about it but solid enough.
