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.

Awful beer, tasted un-Belgian. The appearance is the only good thing.... It will give you also a headache...

Fairly ordinary flavoured beer, not much going for it in the taste department, easy to drink plenty of them but why waste your time?

A nice whote head on the inviting golden brew. A zippy hoppy aroma that really moves out of the glass. Surprised to discover this kind of round full flavor in a lager, bittering slighly at the end like a quaff o milk though not by flavor, more like a feeling. It doesn't spikebut rounds out, sounds a bit too fancy but I am intrigued.

bierkoning (10742) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2003
Can bought at Brussels Midi Railway Station. No aroma detected. Malty orange flavor with some hopbitterness coming up aftert a while. Bland but not too bad for a international type lager. Or was it because I was thirsty and it was 35 Degrees Celcius?

not a bad pils, overall solid with nothing special standing out. overpriced when compared to similar brands. especilly when sold in 11.2 oz bottles
