Heverlee lager is based on a 12th-century recipe from the Norbertine monks of Park Abbey, in the Belgian town of Heverlee.
We blend the subtle sweetness wrought by a malt and maize mash with the distinctly bitter aroma of Saaz - the world’s most expensive hop - to create a deliciously refreshing Belgian Pils style beer.

damzz (332) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2015
Pours a clear lager yellow with a white head. The nose is faint grain. Palate is light body. Taste is mild bitterness with slight malty sweetness but not as sweet as Budweiser. The free glass is great.

hayduke (3676) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Got this at Filthy McNastly’s in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Came a clear gold with thin head. Nose of Noble hops.. Light to medium in body. Flavor is a bit sweet, and the there is a bit of fruit Not much bitterness in the finish. Pretty ordinary and I guess they call it Belgian because it is based on an ancient recipe from the Park Abbey in the Belgian town of Heverlee. Interesting but it did not help the beer meet modern standards.

Erzengel (5294) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
On Tap @ "Committee Room No. 9" in Glasgow. Awful corn aroma. Sweetish with a strange undertone... Not nice. The aftertaste is smooth, sweetish, watery and lots of corn.... nothing great....

On tap at The Lane. Looks like usual lager, smells like one aswell. Tastes soft and rather sweet. Really fresh stuff. Not bad at all for a Lager. Really.

Looks like lager - no aroma - tastes of grain and artificial sweetener - palate is fizzy, soft metallic, fairly sweet
Overall - Had 4 sips of this, left it and bought a pint of Guinness......
