Had this on tap. Not a bad lager. Light but has some bite to it, which I like. Definitely a big step up from the typical macro lagers.

Nothing much happening here. Your standard lager with a small bit of bitterness.

On tap. Pale golden color with a decent off white head. Strange aroma that I honestly couldn’t pinpoint. Flavor of wet straw, with a mild hop bitterness. I think Belgium should stick with ales and let Germany handle the lagers. They do it much better.

Sammy (11069) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2004
mediocre OK interbrew that’s not metallic tasting. Had a pint on the patio at end of a hot afternoon and could cope. Malt lager that is pale and on bitter side.

Nice smooth macro import. No indication of subsurface taste like malt or citrus.

Well you certainly can’t fault the appearance. Can leave a lingering after taste that’s unpleasant though

JorisPPattyn (9386) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2004
Very pale yellow, extremely light-yellow head, good density & leaving some lace. Duff nose, chaff-like, a bit meaty. Hayish, grassy taste, slight acidity a bit lemony in flavour. There’s a note of adstringency in the MF, corresponding to a solvent flavour in the taste. Watery texture, and as said, adstringency. Well, bland and rough at the same time, as expected. To add insult to injury, this came out of a plastic bottle!

i thought this was an ok beer. poured out light gold, with a very large head. didnt have the most pleasent aroma, but overall was a very drinkable beer from a macro.
