500ml can served in a chalice. A: Pours a pale yellow color forming a huge white aired bubbled head. Good retention and some lacings left S: Smells like a regular Lager. Very grainy. Sweet grains, corn, yeasts and hops T: Pretty much like the nose. Sweet grains. A strong grainy backbone. Metallic. A dry beer, in overall. Mild hops bitterness aftertaste. Disappointing M: Very light body. High carbonated. Mild sweet upfront, mild bitter aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Completely disappointing beer. Oh yeah, Belgium can produce disappointing beer [ BA Review @ 6/7/2012 ]

Pale yellow of color with a white foamy head. An aroma of cereal, flour, bread, metallic and hops. A flavor of cereal, bread, metallic and hops

Another everyday Belgian pils. Very light golden colour. Sweetish, quite gassy, added “corn”ish flavour. You can buy from B&M, Ł3.99 for 4 cans. Good value for money.

kermis (5452) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle shared from a free six pack from Dranken Geers, thanks! Pours clear golden with an off white head. Aroma of light fruits, grain, malt and light yeast. Flavor is light to light moderate sweet and bitter. Light bodied with high carbonation. Decent example of the style.

TATE (304) - Lubec, Maine, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow with thin white head. Faint malt aroma overpowered by skunkiness though the bottle shows expiration in October. Good malt up front though very faint with little to no hop bitterness. The balance is okay but very light. Okay but nothing special.

Free six-pack from Dranken Geers :-). Poured Straw with a small off white froth. Aroma of sweet grainy malt. Light to medium body, flavour as the aroma, quite crisp and drinkable.

500ml can pours pale with a reasonable head, taste is crisp & fruity with a lightly bitter finish, nice enough but nothing flash

Light yellow lager with high white head. Aroma is "Øllebrød" (old danish dish of boiled ryebread and beer). Taste is vague. A bit boring beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Voor mij persoonlijk de beste pils die er is in België, eindelijk een pils die niet naar water smaakt. Geproefd in een blinde proef met Stella, Cristal, Maes en Jupiler en dit was de enige die er bovenuitstak. Een aanrader!
