Comments: A pretty decent Belgian pils really, sweet as is the case with most of the country’s attempts, but still crisp, highly carbonated and well hopped.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2007
A Mes rate: Draught at Bruxellensis. Lager looks. Drinkable and refreshing. Light bitterness and none of the expected cardboard. Surprised that I actually thought this was ok.

harrisoni (15043) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2007
On tap at Bruxellensis. Pale gold, lasting white head. It’s an easy drinking pils with some hop on the finish. OK.

JoeinDahlem (1377) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2007
On tap @ Bruxellensis. I know the style gets no respect around here, but I thought this was a nice one with some character. Golden beer with a whitish head that goes filmy. Bready aroma with notes of sourdough, corn tortilla and and grass. Light body, dry, and mildly bitter. Grassy, refreshing. Bust out the Belgian lawnmower.

From bottle almost no head very clean. Not that much smell but still some nice bitterness.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2005
This stuff is terrible. The first surprise was that, when I poured it, it was distinctly cloudy and had lumps floating about in it. I wasn’t expecting that in a lager. The second surprise, and afar less welcome one was the really heavy diacetyl aroma. Coupled with soggy cardboard. Not so bad on the palate, although drinking it from a Duvel glass whilst holding my nose at the same time presented something of a physical challenge. Very cereally and far too sweet for a lager, with a raw malt background. Some hoppy bite coming through on the finish redeemed things marginally. At least many pale lagers are anodyne and inoffensive. This was positively unpleasant. I struggled to finish it. To be fair, it was past its best before date. 250ml bottle (thank God).

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2004
At d’Oude Speye in Damme near Bruges. Nice golden lager with soft carbonation and creamy head. Good soft aroma’s with some fruityness and a faint hoppy touch. Smooth and refreshing taste with a small bitter touch that is well integrated in this outstanding lager. It has a nice a clean afthertaste.

bierkoning (11111) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2004
Grainy apple aroma and flavor. Somewhat dusty with just a touch of hops, the apple dominates. Hopbitter aftertaste. Disappointing beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2004
Bottle. This is just crappy Be;gian lager, about on par with Stella, kinda bland and fizzy, but with bit more appeal than most mass produced lagers.

Boring yellow brew. Thin and undercarbonated. Rather sweet. Hints of hops. Uninteresting.
