Bottled. Pale golden yellow, with a soft medium lacy head. Wheat’y, cheep corn like aroma. Some fiz and a moderate dry bite. Really no better then your average continental larger.

Okay Belgian pilsener, bit skunky smell, very hoppy and a little weak perhaps.

A quite normal Belgian Pilsener. Not the best and not the worst. A bit bland and watery though.

Blond beer with a medium creamy head. Sweet hop aroma. The taste is slightly sweet passing to yeasty and finally a light hop finish. A good pilsener.

One of the best Belgian pilseners. Pale golden colour & nice bitterness, which is hard to find in other Belgian pilseners (now brewing for the Coca-Cola generation). Very good combination of maltiness / bitterness and a little dry at the end. My favourite Belgian ’pintje’. Gentle and TASTEfull

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 Bottle Lightly sweet, somewhat hoppy aroma, not attactive at all. Very palish yellow. Lightly bitter, moderately sweet flavour. Has some medical sirupy taste.

Surprised me a bit, at least it had a nice sort of edgy bitter flavour to make up for the thin body, i suppose it was good it came in the 250ml bottles coz i kind of got a bit board of it, but still drinkable.

This beer is everywhere in supermarkets and bottle shops in the East Flanders region of Belgium but I’ve always ignored it because I thought it was some kind of local macrobrew. Also paying a whole 30 cents for a 250 ml bottle I expected something quite ordinary but was overall pleasanty surprised. Anemic pale blonde clear colour with a somewhat disappointingly tiny head that lasted only for about 5 seconds. Pleasant fresh hoppy, caramel malty and bready aromas. Medium to light bodied with smooth soft malty start moving to a more bitter middle and stronger bitter dry finish. Personally I like my pils just a little sharper and with a bit more oomph. Otherwise quite good and more than definitely worth what I paid for it.
