Along with Jupiler , this is the only ale worth bothering for in Belgium. No surprise they are both interbrew.
Nice beer for a night out, but only 2nd place here!!!

Good yellow golden pils. Clear pils nose. taste is clean, on the light side and ends with a hoppy touch.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Gold color with a quickly disipating white head and very little lacing. Unpleasant aroma of skunk (and Heineken) with some hops. Flavor not unpleasant but not memorable. Very watery. Finish was fairly dry. This could be a fair warm weather lager but there are so many out there that are much better.

This is a very standard macro lager, nothing too different or special. Rather light and watery, fairly crisp, and thirst quenching when ice cold. I wouldnít pay much for it, though.

Well, for the most popular beer in the world, itís a damn sight better than Bud or some other such garbage. Itís an acceptable beer that will always quench thirst without necessarily offering great satisfaction. Itís light and kind of perfumy, and is best drunk before getting to warm or else forget it. A stadard lager with a nice glass and more reputation than its counterparts.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 Not my favorite Belgian beer but, itís not bad. The aroma is slightly sweet and cheesy with a bitter hop reminiscent of medicine. The flavor has a malt that is like wheat and there is also a citrus like taste. Thin Palate.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was really dissapointing. More or less a standard lager, with a light feel to it. Yellow colour, white foamy head. Faint aroma equally of hops and malt. The hop profile barely showed through and left me uninspired.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2006 Yellow, nice sized white head. Pretty standard lager, aroma and flavor wise. Nothing special, and itís a lot pricer than a Pabst...update...I just had a fresh unskunked six pack, and itís better than my original rating. Upped to a 10 from a 7.

Bottle. Yellow with pale white head. Aroma of hops and malts, nothing else. Decent flavor, average on the palate. Last drop was as good as the first drop which isnít saying much. Very average beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very pale golden colour, with a moderate white head, that fades fairly quickly. Pale malt aroma, a trace of grassy hops. Flavour is refreshing, pale malt, light grassiness and a short finish. I was lucky enough to get an unskunked bottle. Okay, but like about a million other beers.
