2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Bottle/Draft - Golden yellow in color with a white head. Aroma is fairly light but some hops and faint malt. Easy drinking, but uneventful. Not my favorite.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2010 Tap: Golden in color with ample head and lacing. Tasted the malts and the hops provided a crisp finish. Clean enjoyable lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: Poured a golden colored beer with a nice foamy white head. Aroma is mostly light floral with some malt. Taste is very light and refreshing with again some malt and floral aspect coming through. Medium carbonation with light body. Very little else to mention for this beer apart from the fact that it seems to be better on tap then in bottle. Overall, a refreshing session-type lager.

A beer I didn’t much like when younger -- many mass market beer drinkers mistake the hoppy aroma for skunkiness. Nice and clean but not spectacular.

The Belgians certainly know what they are doing when it comes to brewing beer. A very nice light aromatic lager that goes down smoother than any lager I have tasted. Add a lemon wedge for enhanced flavor.

The good thing about this crappy beer is that it doesn’t have a nasty corn/metal finish to it like BMC. It seems they have covered it up with a malty sweetness. A very middle of the road beer.

Not alot of aroma, beer was poured cold from a tap. Was a nice surprise for a mass marketed beer. Slight bitterness start to finish. Nice
