Fooled again! I knew from beer swilling in the UK that Marten’s was synonymous with cheap in Belgium. On the discount rack - the green can made me believe it was the real pils (apparently not that good anyway) and not the low end lager. In fact it is neither...instead I have some ’importer order’ before me now. It’s typical yellow and has overly dramatic foam head. The smell is straw, hay, and sugar. It is really sweet, like the sweetness of a coffee stout but with everything else taken out. Not much for hops. Still more like a German pils than a conventional lager...but a bad one.

In abv this is not the same as others listen on this site.
Rare gusher can. Not really sure why. It pours a standard gold with a bright industrial lager looking white head that leaves typical lacing.
The smell is grainy with some orange. For an EPL it isn’t the worst. But where not talking a world-class pilsener here.
The flavor is not the greatest. Very watery. There is a light pinch of noble hops with some orange and a faint bit of bitterness in the finish.
Not super sure why this stuff gets imported other than it is a cheap beer.
