Darkover (1518) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Pale yellow with a white head. Some skunk in the aroma, when first opened, but it goes away. Pretty unremarkable flavor.

beastiefan2k (2500) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2003
UPDATED: APR 18, 2006 No head, yellow color and no aftertaste. However, its not bad and it can be found in most supermarkets if you are really antsy for a belgian.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2003
Yellow w/ white, foamy head. Sweet bread-like nose. Thin feel. Some malt, some hops but generally bland.

desurfer (1222) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2003
No head, light golden body. Refreshing, light malty flavor. Not at all fantastic, but a decent beer.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 28, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 This beer is really on the low end in Belgium and all the craze for trendy clubbers throughout the East. That said - for a standard Pils, its not that bad. Mine seemed really fresh with crisp malt flavors and a smart finish. Tasty but not classic at all.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2003
Belgians answer to our Budweiser. Bland, mettalic, and pumpkin seed flavor. Watery and plain finish.

PorterPounder (5659) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2010 Rerate Revising this after a few years - typical lager - a touch of honey sweetness - nice looking pour. Neutral aroma. Decent saaz bite. Original 3.5 On tap at Taco Mac - Athens, Ga. - surprisingly not available in Tallahassee, Fl - one of the few most accessible beers that I have not rated. Very decent Pils - clean light golden appearance - lots of bubbles. White soapy head. Very crisp, clean flavor. A bit of a slight hoppy aroma. Finishes strong.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2003
When I lived in Belgium, we used to joke that this beer comes from the finest pee water. Really, it is a very average pils that's not complex. Color and aroma is standard with no outstanding characteristics. A bit hoppy on the palate and a clean finish. I would call this this session beer of Belgium.

Holdwine (1082) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 26, 2003
For a mass-produced pils, this isn't too bad. I had it on draft and it tasted fresh enough. Pale in color and in flavor. There is a slight hoppy finish which makes it better than most of the big beers. However, only drink as a last resort.

pondoshuffles (141) - Fitzroy Harbour, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2003
This is the Bud of Belgium. A very standard lager with delusions of greatness. Wet cardboard nose, bound with cheap hop bitterness. I don't like this one at all.
