Thin with very little flavor. Decent but nothing to look for.

Great for a hot day out in the sun. It is very refreshing with decently crisp hops in the aroma and flavor. Good balance in flavor of the bitter hops and the sweet malt.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2003 Not exceptional except that it is a mass-produced beer. I would be very happy if the avearge big brewer's beer tasted this good. A lovely choice for a few on the patio.

Probably the safest lager to drink off tap in the UK. Considering the alternatives.

Just what a pilsener should be. Light, slightly hoppy but balanced. Light golden in color, fluffy white head and good lace on the glass. Aroma is a lot sweeter then other European pilseners that I have had. Not bad overall.

I realize this beer isnít considered to be any great shakes in Belgium, and that itís marketed in the US as a "premium" beer when itís perhaps not, BUT I thought it was quite pleasant and drinkable. Very smooth, and not overly fizzy like an american standard. Not bitter at all. Nice.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2007 Crystal clear bright yellow. Nice light malt flavor, but thereís almost a cucumber aftertaste? Easy to drink and inoffensive European lager.

Not bad. You can get better pilsners for cheaper, though. Due to the cost, I probably wouldnít end up drinking these all night, but if they were free, I would strongly consider it.
