2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Popular standard lager originally just called Maes but in 2009 replaced by a bit stronger version as Maes Pils. The original version had a snow white, thin and loose head and pale yellow blonde colour with lots of fizz. The aroma consisted of pale malts, cooked corn, iron, sweat, white bread and some grassy hops; the taste was neutral, metallic and mineral-like, bit corn-like with only very light maltiness, watery mouthfeel and a very volatile, simple, not even bitter hoppiness in the finish which was otherwise dominated by the metallic taste. Heineken turned it into a new version in april 2009 with a little higher ABV, but at the same time a weaker aroma, albeit with less disturbing corn and somewhat more pronounced hops and a little bit more body in the mouth, with a bit longer, more hop bitter finish, though the metallic aftertaste is still there. Improved, but in such a subtle way that most people will hardly notice it - I had to taste both versions side by side to establish the micro differences between them. All in all, still a bland mass-marketed lager and by no means a classic Pilsener, so I would strongly recommend reclassifying this as a pale lager by style. The points I’ve given here relate to the new version.

On tap. Has ago laden color with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a mild biscuit aroma with some malt, and a similar flavor that is yeasty with dry, crisp finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gradevole pils. Dall’aspetto tipico delle pils. All’aroma si avvertono un buon floreale ed erbaceo. In bocca, nella prima parte del sorso lascia trasparire un fruttato un po’ bizzarro per una pils, ma decisamente gradevole. Dopo lascia trasparire la leggerezza e l’amarezza tipica delle pils.

Beter dan de oude versie van Maes die teveel waterachtig smaakte. Niet de beste belgische pils, maar een goede.
