I really don't know what the fuss was all about? I had it in bottle so maybe I will have to try on tap.....will keep you posted!

Quite a popular beer here in the UK. Also affectionately known as 'wife beater'. Not bad for one of the larger brewers, I could taste some hops and a little of the grain, but, obviously, there are better Belgian beers out there.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Pale yellow gold with a frothy white head. Fresh pale malt aromas have a sweet herbal note. Flavors of grain are present in the background. Clean and crisp with a soft finish.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2004 Had this on draught and liked it. Has a clear golden color and a nice little foamy head that left decent lacing. This beer doesn't have much flavor, mainly hops on the back end and a slightly cider flavor and aroma. I would drink this again in place of a soda. Nothing great but nothing offensive either.

I had this beer on tap at PF Chang's. It has a bit of a sweat sock smell. The color is golden. The head is light. The taste is like a bud with a bit more flavor.

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - NOV 10, 2003
My first beer in Belgium and free in the Marriott's Executive lounge. Pours a golden yellow with thick white head. Not much aroma to speak of. Goes down well if it is uninteresting.

This is a good everyday beer, good taste & body, refreshing but not up to the better Belgium beers.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2003
Skunked. Golden clear body with little nucleation and light head that dissipates fast. Clean smooth flavour with minor grain flavour noticeable and a lasting bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit flat. This is kind of one-dimensional and the green bottles are to be avoided but I would re-try this on tap. Bottle (green).

I tried the version brewed in the United Kingdom and really wanted to hate it as it stands for everything I dislike-a mass produced British version of a European beer. But I was surprised as it has a clean smooth taste with some clear and pleasant flavours.Still by no means a very good lager just a passable one.

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2003 Smelt like Becks, a little bit off. nice clean amber colour but a very thin if not any head. tasted good enough with a nice sharp lingering aftertaste. Not bad but would have to better for me to go back there regulary.
