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.

Spanner (60) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2004
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. Spanner.

Pours light golden. Nothing special. Much like cheap american lager. Have another? No.

On tap from the Black Badger. I have nothing against this beer. Its light and drinkable but def over-hyped. However it has stood the test of time well.

Bacchus66 (60) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pale yellow color; sweetish, slightly funky nose; clean flavors but a light sweet finish. This is obviously not going to win any awards, but somehow it makes an enjoyable quaffer and I like it. Bonus points if, like me, you’re susceptible to slick advertising (see Dos Equis - stay thirsty my friends).

I guess this is Belgium’s brewing answer for the non-sophisticated beer drinker. A classic Euro Pale Lager. No discernible adjuncts here like with typical meh American standard lagers (Budweiser/Miller/Coors). It is hoppy, malty, and just a bit sweet. Smell is of citrusy hops. It is basically a Heineken with more refined taste and less sulfur tang from the bottle. Plenty of better Belgium offerings (Belgium = Disneyworld of Beer!) out there, but this certainly fits the bill and appeals to the majority of beer drinker’s sensibilities. Good, just not great.

PhatCatt (60) - Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2015
UPDATED: APR 24, 2016 Pale lager with hops bitterness which is light at first and then more apparently there and more bitter in longer sips.

A murky yellowish pour with a big foamy head. A very skunky beer. Served on tap at most bars and served at sports games. So I would much rather buy this than a mich light or Coors anyday.
