330 m. bottle. Clear glolden colour, medium head with that dissappears quickly, leaving rings on the glass as you drink. Smell is nothing but grain and hops. Light palate, watery. Taste of grains, herbs and it reminds me somehow of Heineken because of some taste of pear. Metallic notes and some citrus in the end. Just your average mass market beer.

AtronSeige (513) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 29, 2014
Aroma: slight sulfur, slight oxidation, DMS, pilsener malt, grainy.No Hops, no diecetyl, Appearance: Clear light gold body. Fizzy. Medium white, frothy head. Very Good retention. Lacing. Flavour: Grainy sweetness, bitterness coming in in finish. Crackers, pilsner malt, no hop flavours. Medium sweet, medium bitterness, balanced towards sweetness initially, but linghering bitterness. Medium dry finish. No Deicetyl Palate: Medium body, high carbonation. Crisp. Overall: An easy drinking beer. But why in a 250 ml bottle? Can do with a bit more hops for aroma and flavour. 250 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 2A. German Pilsner (Pils)

Tap. Clear golden with fluffy white head and lots of lacing. Quite malty, touch of fruit, grassy hops and light metallic finish. Light bodied. Meh.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Rated on 6-09-2012 on tap at JK O’Donnell’s in Fort Wayne, IN. When poured, this beer has a small white head with a short retention, pale yellow transparent body, no visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is grainy, malty and hops. The flavor mimics the aroma plus being semi-sweet tasting. This beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer has a very odd lingering aftertaste that I am unable to identify what it is. This is a beer not on my want to drink again list.

Seen as the alternative to Jupiler. Aroma of malts and citrus. Taste is sweet with a light bitter touch. Appears clear with a thin white head. A bit boring and watery, but very refreshing. More enjoyable than Jupiler in the finish.

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