Een bier met karakter. Een bier met naam en reputatie. En een bier waar de verfijnde bitterheid en volle smaak zorgt voor een deugddoende verfrissing. Dát is Maes Pils. Gebrouwen met extra mout en Saaz-hop is Maes Pils de perfecte partner-in-crime tijdens memorabele momenten met je beste vrienden!

Have had this a ton of times, but never seened to have come to orating it. Golden with a white head. Better than it was a couple years ago, they added more malt to it and the beer benefits from it. Still it’s not very good, but it’s drinkable. Came out of my blind Belgium super market lager tasting as 2nd best.

0,25L bottle. Pours clear straw with white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is sweet, corn, malt, grains. Flavor is sweet, grains, malt. Finish has touch of bitterness. Body is very watery. Overall: bad.

Una pils scadente. Da una belga ci si aspetterebbe di piů, ma i belgi sanno fare ben altro. Sembra acqua colorata, peggio della peroni

Aroma of pale malt, grain, straw, cardboard. Flavour is moderate sweet with a light bitter finish. Forgettable Pilsner.

Drank at Orient Express, Brussels North railway station. Guess I start with something bad so it can only get better. Awful smell, verry light taste, aftertaste?

Just a typical pale lager; little to no flavor or aroma consisting of corn, wheat and skunky beer. Not the worst by any means but very forgettable.

Tap. Clear golden pour with a frothy head. Herbs, sweat, some grass, hay, vomit. Not that great...

Apparently, “Maes” is the 3rd most common surname in Belgium. My old Belgian friend is “Maes”, too. This is another typical Belgian Pils where you can drink almost any establishment. Light golden colour beer with Saaz hop aroma. Very Refreshing on hot summer days.
