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

tricksta_p (1279) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2014
Aroma of pale malt, grain, straw, cardboard. Flavour is moderate sweet with a light bitter finish. Forgettable Pilsner.

Bierridder_S (25) - BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2014
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?

WVHouseofBeer (871) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2014
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.

bursprak (721) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2014
Tap. Clear golden pour with a frothy head. Herbs, sweat, some grass, hay, vomit. Not that great...

Tarosama (57) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
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.

Syfher (80) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2014
One of the good pils. Low taste but good, same for the palate (little bit pasty) and the aroma. Refreshing. Go get it, you won’t regret it !

Douberd (2513) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2014
(Maes Pils) Can 330 ml from a random gas station in Belgium, served into a glass tankard at home. ABV 5.2% Pale golden yellow, tall and quite thick white head on top, with surprisingly good retention. Heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts, grass, adjuncts, hay. Tastes the same, very sweet and malty, plus some apple juice. Thin body, watery, even the carbonation is a bit low. It was a bit warm but for a first beer after a long trip home, it was pretty ok.

Alusmamuts (439) - LATVIA - SEP 27, 2014
Golden with small white head. Medium carbonate with bitterness rolling over the tongue with remaining bitter after note.
