some corn and malt flavor with a bitter finish. mild sweetness and aromatic an adequate pilsener in my estimation. good smooth carbonation that is vibrant. i was mildly impressed.

500 mL can. Nice looking beer; darkish gold with a nice, rocky, white head. The aroma isfairly typical for a cheap pilsner, and not particularly appealing. The flavour is a tad on the sweet side. Meh.

Pint can pours a pale golden/yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of simple grain and malt. Taste is sweet bready stale malts with light grassy hop bitterness.

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.

Elle est dorée et limpide et une mousse sublime la recouvre. Un nez de céréales, herbacé, floral avec des traces de miel. Un goût de mal, d’herbes, de poivre avec des pointes minérales. Une bière ordinaire qui n’a pas vraiment de défauts, à part celui de ne pas avoir de qualités. M.A. 28-05-15 (1189-150814)

lesifflebiere (1408) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2013
Blonde bien dorée, presque ambrée, couche de mousse blanche qui disparait rapidement. Mince, en nez elle offre des relents de sucre et de maïs. Aqueuse, peu pétillante, elle est trop sucrée et devient rapidement lassante. C’est une blonde qui allie le côté mince et peu savoureux d’une pilsner, avec le sucre costaud d’une belge, et le mariage est plutôt raté.

jsmerig (1323) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Aroma of pale malt. Taste us sweet with a peppery bite at the finished followed by a not so good earthy note at the end.

degbert (1317) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Can. Pours a very nice gold with a high, fine-grained, pillowy, lacy head. Nose is bread, apple, a touch of metal. Mildly sweet on the tongue, with just a touch of roastiness and a bit of a fennel or anise-like herbal note. Finish is clean. Pretty tasty for just plain drinkin’ beer.

Can @ RG 21. Pale yellow. Metallic aroma with a hint of cereal and citricness. Metallic flavor, too. A tad sweet/sour.
