500 ml can. Golden color, white head. Vegetable flavor with strong metallic notes, slightly buttery background. Light body, medium carbonation. Doesn’t Belgium have any standards for the use of their name in beer?

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can 500ml (Prisma, BB 07/2011)
"Recipe was developed in Belgium in 1888. Premium beer". Contains unmalted grains and hop extract. How much advertising guys can lie us? Clear golden color, small white head. Grainy, sticky, a bit cardboardish nose. Light to medium bodied. Very metallic, grainy, some sweet corn-like maltyness, low bitterness. Taste of iron is bad, otherwise quite unoffensive bulk from infamous Martens-line. Brewed for Finnish trade company.

Canned (from Prisma, Vaasa). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grass, bready malts, some grains an mild fruity notes. Flavour is quite bitter bready malts along with some sweet malts as well as grass. Actually a decent pale lager, I had expected something really horrible.
