For me THE best Belgian Pilsner. Nice hoppy aroma and malty, biscuit taste. Light bitter and quite dry and crisp. Very smooth pilsner, and uncomparable with Jupiler or other mainstream Belgian Pilsners. From tap this one is waaay better than bottled.

Golden-yellow clear bear with white creamy head. A light bitter taste with one of the best hops-taste. Tasted at the pub accross the Dupont-brwery in Tourpes and in Leuven from a tap. Taste also better from tap than the 25cl bottle. One of the better Pilseners

Light sweet flavor with crispy straw, dry biscuits, hay, dry dough. Light bodied with average carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Clean finish with light bitter hay, crunchy straw, further doughy biscuits. Lovely.

Poured up on tap at Nuet nigenough where it exhibits a clear gold body that supports a thin white head. The aroma offers up bready corn like notes along with light fruity esters and a light spicy hoppiness. The taste is crisp and easily quaffable. I get smooth sweet thin corn and bread notes that are quickly cut by the carbonation enhanced yeasty fruity esters and modest bitter hoppiness. Darn nice refreshing brew.

(Bottled) Slightly hazy golden with a smallish, bubbly head. Crisp and hoppy aroma with lemon, grainy malt and hints of honey. Very grassy and smoothly, but strongly hoppy flavor with yeasty hints. Refreshing, medium-bodied palate with smooth carbonation. An excellent, crisp and refreshing pils.

Pour is a pale yellow and perfectly transparent with a tight pure white head. The nose is light but refrehing. Pilsner grain up front, a touch doughy, light spice with stale bread and a hint of lemon. Herbal hop behind. Taste is more grainy than the nose, the dough seems more toasted bread now mid palate, the finish is herbal and lightly bitter. The body is very light and refreshing with lower carbonation and a clean crisp finish. Easy drinking.

Location: Draft at Ginger Man (NYC), 1/19/13, Palindromic Rating # 2772!
Aroma: The nose is light, clean and enjoyable, with some floral hops and crystal malts notes too
Appearance: It pours a clear orange color with a small head and some light lace-work
Flavor: The taste has a good, crisp hop flavor to it, with a nice, clean malt presence as well
Palate: The body is fairly light, it has a clean and smooth feel, with a soft carbonation
I thought this was a nice example of a Pils. It is crisp and clean with a nice drinkability. There isn’t a ton more to say here, it’s a fairly simple beer that just hits on what I’m looking for in the style.
