Almost no aroma. Slight sweetness to it but the finish is bitter enough to make this worth buying in summer here. It has weaker flavors than more interesting lagers but that's fine when it's stupidly hot. And when it's stupidly hot it looks very nice. I only buy it for home when it is on 25% off special should indicate the "overpriced for quality" factor..

In the home of dedicated drinkers, this is the UK's top-selling lager. High acclaim indeed for this Belgian brute. A superb lager, minus any of the typical European over-sweetness. Spanner.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - FEB 10, 2004
on tap: pale malt aromas with sweet hop character. a bitter bite, that reminds me of bad beer taste. one of the definate worse belgium beers, probably average for this style.

Liked it..the freshness and its cool factor was just right in the heat here in Australia. Better than most Aussie lagers. On tap almost anywhere in Melbourne.

hopscotch (10083) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2006 On tap at Ned Divine’s... Crystal clear, light yellow lager. Mild butterscotch and floral notes. Good bitterness. Light-bodied with a thin, watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, bitter finish. Why the f**k are they brewing a lager in Belgium? Just so BMC people can say they liked something exotic?

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2004
Clear golden colour with big foamy, but shortlived head. Aroma is mostly hops. Flavor is sweet with just slight bitterness. Palate is perfect.

piscator34 (2130) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 4, 2004
An overpriced, but generally reliable pilsner. It doesn't smell much like anything. Straw yellow in colour, and a fair amount of carbonation. It tastes dry... perhaps even a bit bland, with just a hint of malt. Not bad, but there's usually something better to be had for the price.

Midlle of the road. Middle of the road. Why do we have to do it in the Middle of the road?

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Not much more than an typical, run of the mill lager. Fluffy white head, crystal clear pale golden/yellow color. Not much discernable aroma. Mild malt flavor, no hoppiness. Nothing offensive in this beer, but not much good. Ho-hum.
