330ml bottle. One of my favourite mass commercial lagers. It has nice distinctive hops which carry on through the beer. Could do with more flavour and the palate isn’t great, but otherwise ok

This has surprisingly little flavor for a belgian beer. I had heard good things about it, but it tastes just like most flavorless American lagers. Carbonated water with a slight beer taste. I’d drink it in a pinch, but it is certainly not worth the premium price.

A light lager with a hit of that characteristic belgian yeast flavor. Not too bad on a hot day, but nothing to write home about. Quite malty.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Draught. At - shudder - Red Lobster. Poured clear yellow with initial bubbling and an average soapy white head that lasted quite a while and left a sticky soap-scum "lacing" behind. Aroma of icing sugar and stale grains, a little sour and vegetal on warming. Taste - whoa! - burnt straw and burnt sugar, incredibly thin mouthfeel, very fizzy and incredibly harsh - I couldn’t finish it. I know, I know - "it’s better in Belgium." Right.

nothing special. a good light lager that held its held long enough, didn’t taste skunked, and like Forrest Gump says "and thats all I have to say about that".

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Golden. Few bubbles. Light rim of foam. Grainy adjunct aroma. Sweet. Crisp. Good balance between sweet and dry. I’d drink this anytime actually.

Dark yellow with fine head. Sweet aroma and taste with an unfortunate cardbord flavour.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2005
I think one of the rateberians said it best when he called it "Belgiums Budwieser". this is better than the bud but that is not saying a whole lot. it is golden in color with a large head that is not thick. Light hops in the smell and the taste this is most assuredly a lager beer. This beer seems to be getting the same attention as the brits are giving it... seems all of the "upper class" are drinking this beer because it the beer to drink (not because of it’s flavor). At least it is that way here in Dallas.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2005
From the can (into a Stella Goblet): Pours a clear golden with bubbly medium white head. Aroma is slightly soapy and skunky. Flavour is fairly bland and mild with a slightly skunky aftertaste. Very popular beer but nothing special in my opinion. Nice goblet though.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2005
Standard lager color, little vanishing white head. Mildly fruity and alcoholic aroma. Medium bodied. Nice malty flavor with fruity and nicely hopped aftertaste. Mild alcohol comes up in the end, aftertaste lasts.
