1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aromas of straw, grains and hay with faint floral notes develops. Bit lively, medium thin texture, light bodied, offering a light grainy sweetness with a hint of hop-bitterness in the background, not enough for my liking and the style. Short-medium finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bière de couleur dorée avec un col mince blanc pas vraiment résistant. Nez de malt blond et de céréales. En bouche c’est une pilsener assez classique un gout assez doux de céréales. Rien de très complexe, ce bois bien. Bonne qualité prix mais rien de très extraordinaire, une bonne bière commerciale...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a tall can into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a very clear light gold color with a good-sized foamy white head that had average retention, but fairly good cling and lacing. Its aroma was a blend of straw and grassy hops, with some lighter floral and citrus tones, and a bit of grain. The taste had a light straw-grainy bitterness with bits of herb and grass, and light touches of sour grain. Its body had a crisp, lively feel with medium-high carbonation and fizz, and was fairly dry with a fairly full mouthfeel. Thanks for sharing, Dad.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours yellow with a pretty one finger cap. And that’s about as good as it gets. Flavour is typical easy rock smooth jazz euro watery corn flavoured beer. The finish is brutal, leaving a taste that falls somewhere between old pennies & blood in mouth. Crap. If you have one in your fridge, save it for your lazy ass brother in law on his next visit.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml can. Pale yellow body, small white head. Aroma of grains, wet cardboard, cooked vegetable, herbs, a tad metallic. Tastes a little better and drier: grains, some grassy hops, mineral tones. I definitely had worse than this one.
