Can shared by shigadeyo. A - Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting and fair lacing. S - Moderate grass aroma. M - Medium body with a thin smooth texture and soft carbonation. T- Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft brew.

16.9oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a thin fizzy head typical of these types of beers. Smells of sweet grain with a slightly grassy aroma. The taste is very grainy up front albeit a bit sweeter than many other Euro lagers. This is followed by a wet grass flavor that isn’t really appealing but not off-putting either. A light bitterness pervades throughout. Overall this is just an ok beer. It is not as crisp as I would have liked and there are many better options out there for this style. Can’t really see myself getting this again.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2011
Pale straw colour with a thin white head. The nose is grassy and grainy. Fairly light and thin with just a bit of fishy character. Dirty with a thin palate. Green apple, DMS and metallic flavour as well. God damn - this stuff is horrid; particularly as it warms up.

KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 6, 2011
Can. Light malt aroma, some apple, grass. Average nose, but a bit strange. Grain, malt, cardboard flavor, slightly sweet, low hops, some bread, corn. Ok but bland, light, cardboard is annoying. Worse than cheap Japanese beer.

TrefwoordPunk (808) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2011
Can 50 cl. Pours a clear golden with a medium white head and a semi-pleasant aroma of sweet malts and hops. The the is also a bit on the sweet and malty side compared to the average pilsener. The finish is malty too, with some hops, but the sweet malty part lasts longer. Just average

ads135 (2966) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Another must miss. Still, for grocery store beer, you get what you pay for. Transparent gold color, decent head, but with an unappealing, stale aroma and watery taste.

Benzai (8233) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, decent sized white head. Smell is actually quite ok, malts and bitter. Taste malts, slightly sweet, lightly bitter. Decent carbonation, low to medium body.

mcberko (6515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
500mL can, pours pale golden with a white head. Aroma and flavour of grassy hops, cereal and skunk cabbage. Boring, but drinkable.

suurjuust (1060) - ESTONIA - SEP 23, 2011
Pale straw yellow, big white head. Malty nose with some cardboard thrown in. The taste starts sweet and malty, the middle malty, but underwhelming and the finish is mildly hoppy. Not a bad beer, but totally unremarkable. Not what I’d have in mind if someone said “Belgian beer”.
