DuffMan (9253) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2005
Mainstream European pale lager that does a better job than its American equivalents. Not as much hop character as some of its neighbours, but I like it nonetheless.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Part of a mix-a-six. 11.2 green bottle. Served at ~49° in a lager glass. Super pale yellow/gold with a white, hazy head. Aroma is noble hops, grassy, some (corny?) sweetness. Initial taste is mildly sweet, quite possibly nothing else. The midtaste is grassy, nearly skunky, with some offsetting sweetness. Finish is light and assuming with some grassiness at the end. I have to assume this beer once tasted better than this, but who knows? Better than american macros, though.

digitorus (6) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2005 does not count
Slightly bright and bitter aroma, light fizzy head, body is clear with a yellowish cast, crisp flavor, the initial bitterness is somewhat metallic, but the finish is better. Drinkable but lacks character - not one I would buy again. (Now I know why it was on sale.)

JRHBrew (367) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 29, 2005
Best part of this beer is the smell. If you are new to beer, do NOT dismiss other Belgian beers because of this one. It is a Lager, not the style that comes to mind when immediately when I think Belgium.

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Tap. Pretty tasty and refreshing. I was surprised to find out this was Belgian. Refreshing, tasty, but nothing super special.

PIVOMAN (15) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2005
This is the best pilsner in Belgium and one of the best in the world, if it was up to me. It has a soft taste and the day after you won’t feel like you hit a train with your head.

I like this lager. Slightly bitter, but easily drinkable. Mass marketing done well.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2005
Bottle. Yellow colour, more dark than an average pilsner. Quite a lot of malt in the aroma. Light bitter taste, somehow metallic.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - NOV 22, 2005
Very little aroma and the color is a light yellow. The head is white and short lasting, but conisderable lacing. A slightly grainy flavor but light on the palate.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2005
On tap. When I think Belgian this is not what comes to mind, but then it is a lager. As far as lagers go this is definately better than most of the beer brewed for the masses here in the States.
