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".

I tried diligently to avoid consuming this beer on my trip to Europe, but when our dinner plans fell through and we found ourselves at the emergency backup dinner establishment, this was all they had besides Bud, Michelob and 255ml bottles of Castlemaine, and I was way burned out on soft drinks...

Anyway, aroma is very faint, just a little sweet, light maltiness and floral hop character. Light-medium yellow color, very bubbly, average head. Flavor is dry, malty and lightly bitter, clean and having a very light amount of hop flavor. Balanced, I suppose, and not offensive, really. Palate is crisp, the body is undoubtedly light. Just sort of a generic "beer" type of drink.

(draft) I asked for a Belgian and got this awful thing. I don’t like lagers, and this was a pretty bad lager. Bland mixed with boring.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 smells and tastes like every god-awful premium lager in the world. rotten stuff.

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Was not impressed, but this wasn’t a bad beer. Aroma from the bottle was kinda skunky, head didn’t last long, watery aftertaste. Highly drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

pinkzambia (1395) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 8, 2005
On Tap at Kahootz: Pretty light in flavor with relatively little carbonation. No strong hops or malts present. It had a sour grape aftertaste. This isn’t one that I would go for again.

Had this beer at a local bar on tap. At least they served it to me in a cool glass, otherwise it would have been a complete waste of my $4 for this junk.

Bland, inoffensive, not skunky but ...mediocre. "belgian" for coors drinkers?

draught. Gold, medium carbonation, no head. Corny nose. Corn, sugar, cardboard, just noticeable level of hops. Nothing special here, just Belgian swill. Better than American swill though.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 my friend got me one of these at a bar. i couldn’t help but wonder if it was accidentally a miller lite or something. horribly light texture, no particular taste. a definite pale lager. i guess i was expecting a pistachio taste for some reason (prior experience?). not there obviously. rerate: some hoppiness, more than usual. but even more light-flavored than bud light
