I really can’t tell if there is anything truly destinctive about this Euro macro lager....it’s like so many others in shared character. If I was pressed for aa answer, I would say the malt body is a tad heavier than most macro light lagers and the hop delivery is late (perhaps over stated) and bites too hard in the finish leaving the tongue very dry. Poured a light gold with a smallish white cap that dissipated quickly. Aromas of boiled grian hulls with slight sweetness and a mild floral tone from the long boil of the hops. Very carbonated...slightly thin in the upfront mouth feel then mellows a bit as the malt sweetness and bready taste is departed then the finish is crashingly dry. Not bad but hyped too much. A standard Euro-macro lager...the type of thing you would expect to see shamelessly marketed in cans.

Seeing it was from Belgium I had to give it a try (also being that the only other things to drink were dirty water.....by that I mean Bud and Coors.). Anyway it has a light gold color with a medium head. Typical lager aroma, but much less harsh than Bud. Tastes worlds better than the average beer at this bar, but still not that great. Alright at best.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2005 Had this one on a plane (and a few too many at that... jet lag is a fickle mistress, my friends-- especially after a few brews) that was bound for Paris and then Stuttgart, Germany. It was probably better at the time because of the anticipation of being in the Holy Land Of Beer- GERMANY. I’d have it again, of course... Typical lager with a hoppy finish and sllightly citrusy.

A European Swill Beer. Had this in London I believe. Gold Coloring, no Head. Possibly fruity... not much to quench the tongue...next please...

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Bottle pours light golden, medium white fizzly head, spotty lacing, with minor carbonation.   Aroma of malts, but mainly grass.   Flavor is crisp, easy, slightly grassy but without much grain.   Finishes grassy, but clean.   A definite summer beer.

66 cl green bottle. Very cold which is a must for thr style(& especially on a midSummer evening.Poured a clear straw with nice fat bubbles & white short lived head like most macro lagers.Crisp fruity & refreshing but not at all bitter. Full mouthfeel not a bit watery.Alcohol finish. A nice beer in its place. My wife buys it for me in the supermarket when she’s unsure.

This beer is so weak. I would take this over the mass marketed Buds, Millers, Coors and Heinekens any day however. The aroma is very very faint but quite nice. It’s pretty average. I would drink this but you don’t get much out of it as far as flavor and body goes. It is quite thirst quenching.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2007 A beer to buy cheap on a booze cruise. Not bad - good average flavor without much bitterness. A bit surprising that this beer comes from the same country that makes lambics. An average EU macro that is slightly better than its American counterparts.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2004
Tap: Very pale gold with a white head that lasted the wole glass. Good lacing right the way down to the bottom. Not much aroma to speak of, some hops and malt. Not much though. Taste was the same. Pretty watery. Great fine carbonation. Odd bitterness on the finish. Average.
