Drunk at a Belgian musicfestival. Can’t say that i really like this pilsener. Belgians can make great ales but they shouldn’t brew pilseners.

It’s for those who don’t really like a good beer but still want to feel international. Very much an international lager.

hmmm... I don’t know but I was very dissapointed by this one. Very watery taste to it. Not much better than any of the Budmillercoors types. Totally overated in my opinion! Stay away!

On draught at the Uva Cafe in Downtown Disney. This beer really did not impress me on any level. The first thing I noticed on the tap was that this was from Belgium so I guess I was expecting a Belgian Ale, but this is very obviously a Pils, and an uninspiring one at that. Pours an off-putting yellow with a thin white head. Light hops aroma. Bland flavor that did nothing for me. At least it wasn’t skunky.

Reasurringly expensive? Well - it's overpriced, sure. I just have no clue why it remains the beer of choice for so many. The only outstanding quality is how gassy this foul brew is.

7/19/03: bottle. uh! god!! fresh skunk stench as soon as you pop the cap on this one.. i wonder if they farm skunks to create this odor? pale yellow body. not too good, i just can’t get over the smell. (just a suggestion... maybe they should rename this beer Stenchae Aromas).

This stuff kind of sucks. It wasn't to bad when i started drinking it but as it warmed up a little it was like drinking cat urine.

I had this on tap recently, and found it very ’nothing’. Not ’bad’ like many American Pilsners, but just not much flavor to speak of. I also made the mistake of having it right after a Leffe Brune on tap. A lot of beers would taste like nothing after a gem like that.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2008 Just became available in my area. They’ve been brewing this beer since 1750 and they still haven’t figured it out.
Green bottles=skunky aroma. I can’t get past that. Terrible

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2003 Draft. Absolutely no head. Mega-carbonation overkill. After tasting, was so unimpressed, I tried to chug it and it burned my throat into oblivion. Ouch! Crystal clear gold hue. I challenge anybody to differentiate this from any BudMillerCoors brew in a blind taste test. The epitome of "run-of-the-mill".
