2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle) Interesting bottle picturing a blonde with scratch-off panties. Pours a lightly cloudy yellow body with a moderate fizzy white head. Aroma of dough, grass, and candy corn. Flavor of funky corn and malt.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
[11.2oz Bottle - Johns Market - what a great place] Nice clean aroma. Not a hint of corn. Maybe a bit of yeast. Golden color is slightly hazy with a decent white head. Citrus? A bit of sour? Some grape as one swallows? At least medium bodied as the carbonation swishes. The finish is a bit herbal and has some citrusy sour - but very light. This is a subtle beer. It’s very good stuff, a lager an ale drinker should not snear at.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2005 Poured a light golden color with a small white head. Grassy aroma and tastes. On the weak side. Nothing to go out of the way for unless you want to collect the bottle for the scratch off panties - not to be a male chauvinist pig, but I’ll give it an extra point for the label...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Completely clear, gold. Thick white head, not stable. Grain-and-chaff nose, baked pie, fresh paint. Very faint malt taste, bitter finish. Watery mouthfeel, refreshing, but bitterness sits unnatural upon the malt, unbalanced. Unnecessary, bad taste as its label. Gambrinus, Mulhouse is NOT a brewery, but somebody buying beer in bulk in Belgium from various breweries (it tells so on this label). The Lager version is from an unknown Belgian source.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very pale light golden color with a thin whispy white head. Subtle pale malty aroma has some floral Saaz hop character to it. Very thin, watery body has mild hoppy bitterness. A drinkable, but boring and bland beer. Thanks to skaughty for sharing this gimmicky brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at Eurostash III tasting on 01/12/2012: Bottle from a small shop in Strasbourg. The beer is a clear yellow color with a medium thin and fizzy white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of pale malts and grass. Light body with flavors of doughy malt and mildly bitter grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Barely average gimmick beer overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light orange malt aroma. Medium yellow with large head. Sour flowery hops flavor. Okay but not great - probably worth it for the label.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow, light density of small particles. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Novelty adjuncty sweet lager, but it's not all bad: lasting head and good mouthfeel for the style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Straw hued with small but lasting foamy head and some lace. The aroma is grainy, grassy, floral and papery. The taste has a subdued citric and bitter quality, a touch buttered biscuit, and yeasty. The very short finish does have a acidic nature. The mouthfeel is thin, watery, crisp but not clean. Very so-so brew with a gimmick, still you can do worse.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
"Fannie Says Bottoms Up" So reads the label. I s’pose if you’re gonna produce a BMC clone and "King of Beers" has been taken, it’s an okay slogan. Despite the lame packaging, this fizzy pale yellow lager is more drinkable than a lot of the BMCs. It’s got the same over carbonated quality, but delivers a tasty-if-light sweet malt with a crisp, herbal bitterness. Clean finish.
I know there are MUCH better Belgian beers that can be imported. Why do we have to get one like this?
