I really like this stuff cold. As it happens, this is the only beer from belgium i’ve ever tried, i hear there are some great others though. Not too filling and a great beer to kick back with.

Nice beer- needs a lemon peel in it to soften the taste.

Joeh (2040) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2002
Very inconsistent on draught, more so than other lagers, sometimes it can be really awful. Also, its pretty good in bottles, not in cans however.

jcalbi (378) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2002
Golden color with a crystal clean appearance. High bubbly and foamy head, some lace. Aroma of Saaz hops with a slightly sweet smell. Very smooth on tap.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2003 RERATE 11/12/03: Golden body, medium white head receding, mild Saaz nose. This is Heineken without the off-flavors and with slightly more assertive hops. While it is no Budvar or Prima Pils, it is nonetheless a decent, drinkable mainstream pilsner.

Another typical belgian pils. Maybe a little bit better than Jupiler, but not special.

There are other, better pilsener, but this one is really good in hard places

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2003 After repeatedly telling the waitress I wanted the ’stout’ she was conviced I wanted a ’Stella.’ 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.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2002
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.
