Light crisp lager, faint citrus notes. Not much spicing to the yeast, so it doesn’t hold much belgian character, and lacks anything that gives it much character.

holdenn (2078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2007
12 oz bottle pours a clear yellow with a white head. Nose is very grainy. Hay some malt, but not skunked. Lightly malted flavors a little bit of fruit but a lot of grain. All i’m tasting is old grain as i continue. no more of this.

This beer is light, light, light. Still better then the mass marketed domestic crap. But not by much. There is a little bit of bite that adds to the flavor but that is about all that is good about this beer. NEXT!

mkgrenwel (564) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Grainy and sweet. A good amount of sourness. Balanced by a fair amounf of hops. Not an enticing, enjoyable hop character though. Full body; much fuller than other pale lagers. Decent beer for the style. Far better and more complex than the average, but still not actually a beer I like.

Draught. Outside of the pretty glass this beer doesn’t have much to offer. Skunky nose, pale color and little body. If you see someone drinking this beer at a pub, most likely they like the pretty glass. Common consumers are Eurotrash and Eurotrash wanna be’s.

Draft. Pours light golden with smallish white head. Aroma of skunk, and some corn. First sip, a bit skunky, then hoppy, then finishing with corn on the cob. Feels very carbonated, and watery. After the corn flavor disappears, not much left. I knew I should have tried the miller light instead.

When 2pac said "i dont mind it. got a gay fucken name but." he expressed both a mild satisfaction with the beer and a general distaste for the name of the beer, notably his rating ends mid sentence leaving his outright conclusion of the beer to be determined by the reader leaving only his numerical rating as a indicator of his general assessment of the beer.

The beer pours a very pale yellow color with a huge tight white head.

The aroma is initaly the skunkiest thing I have ever smelled other than a skunk, this is the sort of beer Loudon Wainwright III would be compelled to write a song about. Leaving it for a minute results in less skunk and more odd lightly moldy malt and mild spiciness. Geeze this doesn’t smell nice on any accord.

The flavor is clean, fairly sweet and malty with some mild grassy hops. The beer is lightly spicy and I kind of like the crisp malt character.
