Best Belgian pilsner. Very fresh taste. Better then Stella Artois or Jupiler

The tast is truly like it’s name Cristal clean and fresh, classic pilsner. Decent hops and a fine malt nose with a trace of the hop flowers. terrific beer, hard to find here. Got mine from a beer club.

Oh my, does this baby go down smooth and easy. The body is extremely soft and gentle, drying out just a bit towards the end. I could drink this pilsner by the tankard for days on end.

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

Helder geel bier met gemiddeld schuim. Smaak is bitter en sterk. Uitstekend bier! Gedronken op terras in Maaseik.

Just yesterday I told someone from Belgium that they brew the best beers in the world but that they can’t brew a good pilsener. And guess what happened: today I’m trying Cristal Alken and I like it! The aroma is not a good start. Just a bit malty. It’s pale golden with a nice head but nothing special. It’s fresh and light, malty and hops. In the end a little bitter. Good pilsener.

Can at Chriso pre-GBBF tasting 09. Decent pale lager. Very nice, very drinkable, very light. Just so drinkable as to be untrue.
