50cl can. Aroma of light malts, corn?, and grass Taste follows nose. Not much to say; it’s watery, bland, and not that great.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma/appearance: did not smell or see; Taste: inoffensive but not good; Palate: light bodied with long, unpleasant grainy finish; Overall: fine for a canal tour with nothing better around, but otherwise would not get again.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a 50 cl can bought at a Deen supermarket in Lelystad. Apparently brewed at the Martens plant in Kaulille, Belgium. Lacing, moussy, thick, snow white head over a cristal clear ’old gold’ coloured beer with low fizz, a tad darker than average for the style. Aroma of cooked sugar corn, sourdough, fermenting grass, wet kitchen towels, soaked banana bread, some ’can iron’. Sourish and ’sweaty’ grainy onset, dull, with unmistakable maltose sweetness on top defining the rest of the palate, too soft carbo for the style rendering the mouthfeel notably watery, metallic ’zing’ too, ending very mildly grassy bitter with a certain chemical twist to it somewhere. Bland industrial lager, in which the deeper than average colour hints at a notably malt sweet taste; hop bitterness is dull and industrial as expected, but a bit more effective than usual perhaps. Not the worst one but obviously boring at the same time, like most of Martens’ supermarket lagers.

Bottle at home. Clear golden with short lasting white head. Sweet grains, corn, wort, light herbs and honey. Taste is sweet with barely any bitterness. Thin bodied with low but prickly carbonation. Wow, this is not good at all, like all Martens.
