I realize this beer isn’t considered to be any great shakes in Belgium, and that it’s marketed in the US as a "premium" beer when it’s perhaps not, BUT I thought it was quite pleasant and drinkable. Very smooth, and not overly fizzy like an american standard. Not bitter at all. Nice.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2007 Crystal clear bright yellow. Nice light malt flavor, but there’s almost a cucumber aftertaste? Easy to drink and inoffensive European lager.

Not bad. You can get better pilsners for cheaper, though. Due to the cost, I probably wouldn’t end up drinking these all night, but if they were free, I would strongly consider it.

On tap at Brussells airport. Well I decided to try it one more time before I left Belgium especially when someone recommended trying it on tap. Visually its the same pale gold clear but this time under a large medium lasting white head and faint lacing. Served too cold to discern anything other than s faint hop straw aroma. Same old thinnish watery body and faint bitter palate. From what I can see there’s no real difference between on tap and bottle versions of this beer.
First rating 6/17/2002 2.1 Bright gold clear colour with almost zero head. Faint malty corn syrup and hops aroma. Thin watery body and light bitter hops flavours. Faint bitter hops and soft sweet finish and wimpy aftertaste. Fortunately I only have to drink this once (for rating purposes only) while living in beer heaven - so for now it’s back to the strong Belgians.

Rubbery, hoppy, adjuncty aroma. Almost no head, pale amber beer. Med.-light carb and body. Crisp with a bitter alcohol taste. Not very impressive for a Belgian beer.

Drunk at a Belgian musicfestival. Can’t say that i really like this pilsener. Belgians can make great ales but they shouldn’t brew pilseners.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2003 O.k., now that I've had this on tap, I'll re-rate: previous bottles were not so hot. Nice cookie dough malts - sure, not real thick, but it was refreshing with a nice mellow hop at the end. (original:)light golden color. There's a sweet maltiness from start to finish. The hops dry out the finish, but are still dominated by sweetness. average at best.

Primium? I couldn’t taste anything. Sure it looks nice goes down easy, but a little too easy. Very timid.... Its a weak drink.
