Can. Thought this would go under one of the other two ratings. This is 4.8% ABV and shows Martens Pilsener in the logo and Premium Pilsener beneath it. Gold bodied with a tall foamy white head. Sweet and slightly don’t aroma with cereal grains and grassy notes. Taste is sweet malt corn syrup, cereal grains and light grassy hops. Body is light-medium and moderately carbonated. Finishes with more cereal grains, grassy hops and sweet mal notes.

Aromas is grains and beery. The flavor is similar to the aroma along with a crisp, mildly hoppy finish. Decent enough.

PorterPounder (5556) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - I pt .9 fl oz can. Pours a light-medium golden with a silkly snow white head - brief lacing. Patented saaz hop aroma, bit of skunk - but not off-putting. Flavor has some honey sweetness, some grassiness, a brief nutty back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Better than expected, and refreshing after a long drive.

HopTsing (426) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2012
From the bottle poured a very beautiful golden brew that produced a very thick, foamy head. The aroma was well balanced. The taste was light with well balanced malt and hops. As with all Pilseners, it was light and fresh and IMO best served very cold.

ADesenberg (597) - Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Can: pours a gold color with a big frothy head. Aromas are of sweet sugar and grasses. It tastes like a cheap, sweet lager. Fake tasting is the best way I can describe it.

Tricker (280) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2012
Bière blonde de 4.8 %. Beau col au versement, odorat céréalier, mais avec tendance de bière commerciale. Elle possède un goût sucré et simple. Petit arrière-goût amer, mais correct.

lefossoyeur (453) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2012
Golden blonde topped by a creamy white head with good head retention. Very light herbal hops and maize nose. Light body, creamy, bland with a watery metallic finish. A generic pils. And oh! it comes from Belgium, making it a generic belgian pils...

Scrapersnbeer (1481) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2012
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.

crossovert (7410) - Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2012
In abv this is not the same as others listen on this site. 500ml can. 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.
