UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 This beer gets a lot of underserved attention. Skunky-sweet with the taste of bread, almost as if someone dropped sugar into a Budweiser. The finish is sickening-sweet. Not a fan.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2005
On tap - Poured golden with a nice white head. Aroma is of sweet malts and yeast. Flavor is grainy with a slight bitter hop finish. On the palate this is light and crisp and clean. A much better choice than the American macros at the bar.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Typical macro lager, but it had a slight bit of breadiness in the flavor that saved it some. As usual, carbonation and bitterness were too up front and covered everything that could be good up.

vanvenlo (1576) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2005
Apr05 - Slight sweetness and some hop aroma. Clear yellow gold, with good lacing and head. Slight sweet and pleasant hoppiness. Some bitter tanginess, nice frothy medium mouthfeel, with lingering hops. A bit too euro trash for my liking, but I was pleasantly surprised even though it is nothing extraordinary.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2005
pours golden in color with a medium sized head, aroma is a little skunky and sweet, taste is also sweet with a small presence of hops, so far to date one of the better pale lagers i have tasted, but thats considering most are also macro brewed.

masedawg (156) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Clear yellow color with an average head and good lacing. Aroma is very enticing. The beer tastes slightly bitter and finishes relatively clean. Nothing too impressive but nothing to complain about either.

fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 18, 2005
This is like the budweiser of Belgian beers. Nice color. It’s a good beer but not a great beer. It’s an average lager that is dependable and a couple of notches above Miller. Smooth with a little skunk bitterness on taste which is what you get with average lagers.

BrewDad (5274) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2005
This is a good beer. It has a wonderful color and the yeast undertones add to the hops. I do not get the Belgium out of this so I would say this is more like a Hefe.

Sten (718) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 A pretty descent lager with an mettalic aroma, but certainly not one of the best. (Bottle 25cl, can 33cl)
