Depuis le changement de recette, on est sur une bière beaucoup plus semblable à la Jupiler sans ce côté agressif, elle est très bonne pour des consommations plus fortes.

Holmen2 (1406) - NORWAY - FEB 17, 2015
From tap at Metropolis Café, Brussels, with EG 16.02.15. Fruity lager aroma and taste. Very moderate birterness. Short aftertaste. A mediocre Eurolager.

Peter_L (951) - SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2015
Tap@Radisson Bryssel. Blekgul vätska med höhhushögt skum. Doftar bröd och gräs. Neutral smak med låg beska. En törstsläckare efter ett par timmars stadsvandring.

thirstyrabbit (1248) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow body, medium to small head. Nice hoppy aroma for an industrial pilsner. Medium mouthfeel. Pretty crisp taste but of course it’s watered down too much. The aroma promised more. No off-tastes but somewhat generic. Ok for what it is.

Pyrmir (3671) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
Canned during Brussels vacation. Aroma and taste are light, malty, some yeast, sweet but no flavors really sticking out.

Rightful winner of European Beer Star 2014, category European Style Mild-Lager. This beer distinguishes itself by the perfect balance between malt and hop taste. The taste is full enough for a pilsener (not too watery), but also smooth and not too bitter in the end. Although you certainly notice a smooth slightly bitter hop taste. Good quality. Like the fact that it comes in a dark glass bottle, in contrary to many other mass production beers. Feel that this will keep the beer from developing taste deviations. You will like this beer if you like smooth pilseners, that still have some character to it. You might not like it so much if you do not like hop taste, or prefer a very strong bitter aftertaste. Beer rated in comparison to other beers in this style.
