Belgian beer, but international lager. Brewed with sugar. A bit sweet. Pale. Rather boring.

VincentKabel (106) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2014
Golden color with a white head. Medium carbonation. Aroma of malt, but also some fresh citrus fruitiness. Malty taste with a slight bitterness to it. Pretty decent pilsener.

allmyvinyl (2179) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2014
250ml bottle at home. Clear gold pour, short-lived white head. Aromas of light lemon and malt. Taste is slightly metallic, astringent finish. Meh.

Boring pilsner. Fresh and drinkable and all, but also very plain and watery.

jmgreenuk (3577) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
Tap at the Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a thin white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is malt yeast. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a watery light malt hop palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty poor!

Pours a yellow color. A pretty weak and watery pilsener with faint noble hops and a lot of grains in the foreground.

Une Pils basique sans aucun intérêt pour moi. Même la soif ne l'appelle pas.

minutemat (886) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 25cl bottle from le Botanique, Brussels but have had many of these at various music venues throughout Belgium over the years. Has a curiously sweet malt taste which I don’t think i’ve noticed before, although the label does say ’Extra Malt’ so that could be why. Other than that it has a sweetish grainy taste along the lines of honey nut loops, or something like that. Really bizarre.
