I think this beer is also terribly overrated, even if it is one of the best sellers in its demographic market or whatever. It is still suffering from the green bottle blues. A very sweaty musty skunk aroma and taste, but not as bad as some others.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2003 I think this beer mostly suffers from being terribly overrated. Its gaining increasing popularity (at least here on the East Coast) and even though it is gaining the status of newest beer snob beer at many sports and dive bars, I find it a little disappointing. Its better than a becks or heineken, but has a bit of a skunky aroma (re: gym socks) with a very watery, corny, grainy taste. Hint of apple cider as well. Nice, unassuming finish. Not bad, just not terribly great!

The REAL king of beers, aka "shoe loser" as well as "wife beater"

Very much like becks/heineken w/a strange offtaste.Not as bad as expected.Nothing to really seek out neither.It reminded me of this beer called Peter's pilsener.

Quite a popular beer here in the UK. Also affectionately known as 'wife beater'. Not bad for one of the larger brewers, I could taste some hops and a little of the grain, but, obviously, there are better Belgian beers out there.

Pale yellow gold with a frothy white head. Fresh pale malt aromas have a sweet herbal note. Flavors of grain are present in the background. Clean and crisp with a soft finish.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2004 Had this on draught and liked it. Has a clear golden color and a nice little foamy head that left decent lacing. This beer doesn't have much flavor, mainly hops on the back end and a slightly cider flavor and aroma. I would drink this again in place of a soda. Nothing great but nothing offensive either.

I had this beer on tap at PF Chang's. It has a bit of a sweat sock smell. The color is golden. The head is light. The taste is like a bud with a bit more flavor.

My first beer in Belgium and free in the Marriott's Executive lounge. Pours a golden yellow with thick white head. Not much aroma to speak of. Goes down well if it is uninteresting.
