UPDATED: AUG 31, 2007 This is an average beer at best, but it has a little bit of a citrus bit and some grainy malts. Why do people even bother with this style?

I finally tried this the other day. I was not that impressed, but it was the only thing on tap that appealed to me. Nice glass though.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 This beer gets a lot of underserved attention. Skunky-sweet with the taste of bread, almost as if someone dropped sugar into a Budweiser. The finish is sickening-sweet. Not a fan.

cazort (559) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2005
UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 Extremely yeasty, rather malty. Hops are an afterthought. Like many lagers, too sweet--way too sweet. This tastes exactly like an American "pale lager" to me. When I get to the end of the bottle, it is seeming extremely thin and bland. There’s absolutely no excuse for the high price of this beer...why pay this much for an import when you can either buy an import, or buy a better, cheaper domestic, (e.g. yuengling lager).

I think one of the rateberians said it best when he called it "Belgiums Budwieser". this is better than the bud but that is not saying a whole lot. it is golden in color with a large head that is not thick. Light hops in the smell and the taste this is most assuredly a lager beer. This beer seems to be getting the same attention as the brits are giving it... seems all of the "upper class" are drinking this beer because it the beer to drink (not because of it’s flavor). At least it is that way here in Dallas.

On tap. Yellowy gold with a substantial white head. Grainy nose. Weak grain flavor. Crisp finish, and it is oddly drinkable, but not a good lager, for sure. Maybe you keep drinking it to try to find some flavor.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Draught at Federal in Durham, NC. Clear, golden color with thin white head. Subtle piney hop aroma. Grainy flavor with a hint of hops. Metallic aftertaste. Not particularly good.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Part of a mix-a-six. 11.2 green bottle. Served at ~49° in a lager glass. Super pale yellow/gold with a white, hazy head. Aroma is noble hops, grassy, some (corny?) sweetness. Initial taste is mildly sweet, quite possibly nothing else. The midtaste is grassy, nearly skunky, with some offsetting sweetness. Finish is light and assuming with some grassiness at the end. I have to assume this beer once tasted better than this, but who knows? Better than american macros, though.

Bottle (green). Had this beer at a family gathering. My beer was skunked. So were the other guest’s SA beers but that did not seem to bother them. When I asked them what they like about this beer here some of the answers I received : Seem to be popular these days, nice bottle, good commercial ads on TV, it is imported ….To each his own I guess. No need to go any further. Why should I drink a smelly beer when there are outstanding Belgians and local beers on the market.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2005
Clear golden straw colored, white fizzy head. Nose was corny, white bread, spicy, grassy hops, and lightly floral. Corn flavored, some metallic spicy hoppiness throughout. Light bodied, watery and thin, adjunct laden finish. Belgian Budweiser...
