this bear has no taste, it’s a commercial bear and I won’t even give this beer to my dog

As I don’t like Maes, I didn’t like their ’cool’ either. Too cold for a complex taste.

A special pils that should be drunk cold that is why the name. Still to sweet for a pilsener

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Pale golden, decent head. I had expected a pils with all flavours removed. Instead I get a rather strong lager with lots of sweetness. They forgot the hops in this. Not very well made. 310397

Far better than it’s bigger brother. Is getting really hard to get here in Belgium, if it is still available at all ...

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2002
A very blond beer with a medium head. Weak yeast and wood aroma. Very flat with a yeasty taste.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2002
Light horseblanket malt aroma. Pale golden, fair lace. Little bitterness, plastic, watery, short finish. Where are the hops? Overall unbalanced and tasteless.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2002
Pale gold clear with fine bubbled bright white short lasting head. Very faint bitter hops and stale malt aroma. A very light watery flat lemonade style body and light bitter finish. What a depressingly characterless excuse for a beer. Not awful, but close.I can see the serious Belgians staying away from this one in droves.
