2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottled) Clear golden with a smallish, firm and lacy head. Light but grainy-malty aroma with some subdued hops, acidity and hints of honey. Quite acidic flavor with moderate, corny maltiness and some grassy hops in the finish. Light to medium-bodied, acidic palate with smooth carbonation. A reasonably-bodied, malt-accented lager, that could have less acidity in it.

Sampled on Flashy’s tour of Brugge in June 2007 - A pretty average, sweetish, piss-yellow pilsner. Not worth mentioning any more, the Belgians should leave the pilsners to the Czechs and Germanians.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Needed something brainless to wash down my last beer, and here it is. This used to be an unpasteurised, aggressively hopped beer but after tasting it I can say that no longer rings true.
Poured a very thin, bright, yellow-gold. No head filled out though it had a little life on the meniscus and managed just a wee-bit of lacing. Lightly sour malts greet the nose with some barnyard hay and cracked pepper. Underneath it is skunky and eggy, convincing me it didn’t take the voyage from Belgium too well. Zingy, mint leaves and dusty hops seem to pop up first in the mouth. Sadly the mid-palate was lifeless and cardboardy with artificial sweetener sitting up front giving it a nasty tangy sweetness. Finish has a mild bitter edge before a sweet, rough malt swallow that showed little length. Body is light and the carbonation soft so you could slam ten of these down before your first belch and trip to the little men’s room. Not really my thing at all, though it was better than the Maes Pilsener. (25cL, 4.8% ABV, 11/04/07, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)
