UPDATED: JAN 8, 2003 After repeatedly telling the waitress I wanted the ístoutí she was conviced I wanted a íStella.í Not surprising considering the high concentration of yuppies in that neighborhood. Anyway, the beer could have been worse, but I was not pleasently surpirsed either. Slighter richer in flavor than your american standard, but nothing too speical. They had it on tap.

Not at all what I had expected. Flavor started out bitter and skunky and turned to bland by the end of the pint. Even so, it still beats the heck out of American mega-pilsners.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2004 Didn't impress me at all. Everything was shy in this beer. The malts, the hops? Not much taste.

This stuff is pretty far removed from anything else from Belgium. I got ripped off, I was in this pub in Chicago on the one free night that I had on a business trip. Didnít have time to make it over to Goose Creek before it closed, so I stopped in some random bar and had everything that they had on tap that I hadnít had before. It wasnít a very good experience, and the bartender told me that this was a Belgian Ale. Uhh, no. It did have an okay smell, albeit a bit skunky. Not much else nice to say, it was pretty bland. Are there any good pilsners out there??

Clear,golden. Better then average head and lace. Nose is a bit skunky with a tad of flowery hops. Decent body,oxidized to all hell. Some ok malt flavors,smooth,drinkable. Will I ever buy it again? Nope.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 8, 2002
Bottled. Big disappearing head, clear light golden color. Nose slightly hoppy, pleasant, weak. Flavor a bit bitter given that there is little malt to counterbalance it, and that the body is pretty thin. Better than most cheap American swill, but not by much; certainly goes to show that not all Belgian beer deserves to find a place on the American market.

An acquired taste for many palates. The abrasive flavour can be off-putting to new takers. Most drinkers graduate to this tipple from nasty Carling. One of the few beers in my experience that tastes better from a can than from draught. Canít beat the real stuff from Belgium though!

Itís pretty good, but much lighter on the hops than most pilseners.

Itís okay, but after the first pint you start to wish you hadnít started. After a number more you wish you werenít born.
