Golden amber in appearance, with okay lacing. A great hoppy aroma. Really good on the palate. Nice and smooth, easy drinking. Perhaps a good session beer.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 24, 2004
This beer smelt like pine needles when first opened up, but then that smell quickly dissipated. What remained was a smooth, enjoyable and pleasant light tasting mellow beer. Two thumbs up.

on tap. This was horrible, I may have gotten a bad pint but damn. Pale golden colour but the aroma and taste were entirely of wet stinky cardboard. Just a dank beer.

Doesn’t smell very good. Interesting taste that I can’t put my finger on. Slight bitterness. Looks like a typical lager.

pintbypint (2706) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2004
500ml can. Golden brew, creamy white head, lots of lacing. Malt and small hop aroma. Fairly smooth, decent maltiness, hop aftertaste with a slight metallic/mineral note.

hopnpop (69) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Looks like your typical bottom fermented brew, nice clean light golden color with a decent white head. Aroma of flowers and malt. Initial taste was slighty lemony with a strong undetectable flavor that I was unaccustomed too. Not unpleasant, just funky.

Out of the tap. a light tasting yet full beer. I can take or leave the beer for the price.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 7, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 In the can aboard Brittish Airways. Gold in color. Lots of carbonation. Huge Belgian head upon pouring. In fact, I would call it frothy and pillowy. This beer smells like pork! Not skunky at all (in the can). Gorgeous lacing in my crappy little plastic airplane cup. Beer has a sweet palate with a low hop flavor. The killer head remains to the end at 30K ft. If this is the worst that Belgium has to offer, then Katy bar the door! UPDATE May 2006: seems a lot more boring in the green bottle at KC Barbecue in San Diego. At least I got a free shot of Night Train. UPDATE March 2007: On tap at Trovatos. Very pedestrian, as my pal bditty187 sez.

Pours yellow with white head. It tastes fresh and has nice bitterness to it. It is a good macro lager. I would have again.

(bottle) your basic, crisp lager. i’m sure i could throw these back pretty easily. better than your run of the mill macro but nothing exceptional.
