next time will try with a lime in it if you get my drift, a little less artificial tasting than its Mexican cousin but not much better

A lot of hype surrounding this beer amongst my friends, a pretty good pilsener, but definitely not a lager. Golden clear color, nothing real distinctive in the ways of malts or hops. A bit expensive...

bearly any head with an almost piss yellow color too it. It was really refreshing, it had a pleasent malty taste and a nice finish that did not leave the mouth dry.

Middle of the road score on paper, but words fail me as to why the flavor is so damn good, as i said nice golden appearance but nothing special same with aroma of light malts but the taste is hard to describe but very refreshing but must be served at 5% and in right glass and direct in Brussels where they know how to serve and tastes even better

Nothing particularly wrong here, just very middle of the road. Typical pils appearance, maybe a tad darker. Draft, served in the corrct Stella glass. Head faded away. Smelled of light malts, a touch grainy, maybe grassy. The flavor was soft, very clean, a bit of floral hops on the end. Not watery, but not exactly full bodied either. Stunningly average, easy to drink.

This brew always seems to get branded as the Belgian Budweiser, but imagine my delight upon entering a Homewood,Il "sportsbar" and seeing it on tap...a perfect savior from macros and cheap vodka! Even cooler when it came in it's appropriate and branded glass. The beer is no 50 pointer, but it is a decent grassy hopped, flavorful pils with slight touches of skunk from the bottle, but clean from the tap.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Pours a perfectly clear light golden yellow like a typical pilsener. Aroma is sort of like an Hefeiweizen, with maybe a hint of banana--or is it skunkyness? The head is a light white head which disappears into tiny lace. The start is kind of cabonated with not much flavor. It then smooths out very nicely and finishes with a bit of acidity. Rating pilseners is always the most difficult, because they are supposed to be rather boring by nature. One must not compare this to other complex styles. From a pilsener perspective, id give this about a 6.5-7.0 out of 10.----re-rate 8/3/06. Boring malty start, with some toastiness. Finishes with a crisp, peppery, spicy hoppiness(5/3/6/4/11)~~~~~~~~Re-Rate~~~~~~ The aroma has some corny DMS present. Light vegetal. No overt hops or skunk. Meh. Transparent yellow body with a foamy white head. Starts with light sweet maltiness, before a touch of corny DMS comes through. Finishes with light mineral flavors and a little crisp grassy hop flavor and bitterness. Good enough.

A clean but body-lacking pilsner, very common in Yorkshire Pubs. Better than A-B Budweiser, to be sure, but not really a good British beer.

Keg version, brewed in Dunstable U.K. It's probably unfair to mark this crap, chemicaly mixed for the youth of Britain, but if Interbrew want to put their name to it to gain massive profits then they deserve it. It is sickly sweet malt liquor that could rot your teeth. They probably stir in some alcohol content as well. I can't find anything positive to say about it other than it looks ok.
