This belgian Ale is a simplistic beer with minimal flavor but a propensity to keep you refreshed. The aroma is no present but it pours amber brown with a big froothy head. The sweet texture lingers and leaves you coming back for more.

Blairgus (2567) - California, USA - JUL 30, 2014
30 July 2014, tap. Amber, clear, no bubbles. Nose is sweet spiced malt. Med body and moderately fizzy. Sugary, noticeable alcohol, granola malt, caramel. Meh. Heavy for a refreshing beer and fake syrupy for a nice medium dark beer.

Draft at Rooney’s. Amber. Malt forward with citrus notes. Toast and caramel are also in the mix. Dry finish. Not bad, only had one but, I could easily drink a few. A nice session ale with a full body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It is said to be an Ale that is refreshing like a lager or pilsner... I agree it meets those requirements. Not overly complex, but a nice malty beer with a mild finish.

maledictum (613) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUL 10, 2014
Slightly dusty, but sweet nose with a lovely caramel color. Great head; like a sponge. Light toasted malt flavor, but a little buttery. Slight dryness at the end, but overall more on the sweet side. Creamy mouth feel and an OK balance.

574deadzone (1000) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours a solid gold with a thin eggshell cap that settles to a ring and leaves some soapy, hanging lace. Nose involves some light citrus notes and some noble hop spice with a touch of doughy yeast. Lightly sweet, a bit tart, fairly bitter. Lighter bodied, a bit watery, a touch grainy, finishing lightly tart and somewhat dry. Really, not bad, pretty refreshing, and somewhat resembling a pilsner or helles lager.

GuideDogSaint (147) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
330ml bottle from Carrefour, Xintiandi, Changchun. Pours golden with a thin white head. Strange aroma, citrussy lime.A little bitterness in the taste. For a 5.2% beer this is decidedly watery. Belgium can do a lot better.

maxwelldeux (3502) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a very small white head on there. Nose is a little sweet and definitely fruity, with a bit of banana in there if you push hard enough. Tase is slightly sweet and a bit earthy actually, and almost drinks like a flat champagne. Interesting...

Light amber with small head that fades out very quickly. Thin feeling with not much going for it other than the caramel flavor and smell. While it is not a bad brew there is nothing great about it. A couple days ago I tried the new Busch Signature. This beer has simular qualities.
