2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much special here. I got a case on sale for $10, and then I was able to use a coupon for an additional $1.50 off. This beer is always so expensive and I don’t really know why. Pours a nice golden color, easy on the palate, no aftertaste or any sort of flavour. Not as watered down as American Macro swill, but no real flavor. Not worth what they charge.

Bottle, Honolulu. A little skunky, but it still goes down smooth, kind of. It is a good after work beer or with some light food

Unexciting very slightly skunky beer. Better than a lot of other pales out there though. High ABV!

A wonderful beer that is pleasant and satisfying. It is tasty on its own or with a wedge of lemon.

over-priced over-rated belgium import . . to buy one at a bar is fine, paying $30 for a case is ridiculous for this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours typical lager color with minimal head - interestingly enough, when I held up to the light, couldn’t see much action regarding carbonation bubbles rising to top - but the beer wasn’t flat - solid all around brew, I was a bit surprised at the overall rating given by others - I thought this was on par with the ’crafts’ put out by the big boys (e.g. Blue Moon) while priced about the same...

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2008 Bottle. Thin, light. Pale lager or not, this is boring. I hope Belgium have better beers than this.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brilliant gold, with average head, nice lacing.
Smells of grass, and a bit of lemon. Almost sour.
High carbonation, not much, if any euro-skunk detected. Floral start, but not bitter. Near the end, I picked up a slight bit of graininess. Actually very refreshing, I could myself drinking a couple of these with no problem.
Not my favorite style, but, all in all, a nice macro-euro-lager.

Liked it..the freshness and its cool factor was just right in the heat here in Australia. Better than most Aussie lagers. On tap almost anywhere in Melbourne.

In the home of dedicated drinkers, this is the UK's top-selling lager. High acclaim indeed for this Belgian brute. A superb lager, minus any of the typical European over-sweetness.
