On tap at BXL. Pours a clear golden straw yellow with a large white head. Crisp grain, light citrus. Light and grainy, crackery. Smooth and gently sweet. Quite crisp. Ends with a little more grain and cracker.

Tap at Sunswick, during Belgian Beer Fest. Iím surprised this beer doesnít get more love; I found it to be an excellent Pilsner. Poured clear gold with a soft, white head. Nose of crisp malts and light sugar. Flavor was crisp with mild sweetness and pleasant bitters on the tail. Light to medium in body with refreshing carbonation. Everything I would want from a Pils.

This was on tap at Spuyten Duyvil, and it was not a very exciting beer. Pretty light, sweet, biscuity pilsner. Not much hop action, and it is similar to East European brews.

On tap at Maxís Belgian Fest, called Strubbe Pils: Pours a bright transparent golden with a thin, stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh saaz hops and clean pale malt. Starts with good fullness for the style and nice, fresh noble hops with a clean, smooth finish. A good, true to style and very drinakble pilsner. From the looks of the other ratings, this may not actually be the beer I had.

On tap at HDG. Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma of light fruits and wheat. Flavor is all stale wheat malts. Bland and not very tasty. Where’s the flavor??

Tap at Hop Devil Grill. Aroma of grains and wheat. Flavor just bland. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing really right with it either.

On tap at The Hop Devil Grillís separate Belgian Room. A decent drinking pilsner with some complexity, better than expected.

I usually have a draught pint or two of this stuff every time I go to Hop Devil in NYC. Most recently had it on 1/12/07 there.
Frothy, stark white head is full and shows moderate retention, providing low to moderate lacing. Lots of carbonation in the clear, copper-golden liquid.
Dusty, peppery hops indicate some type of Saaz or Kent goldings, seemingly. Dry, not overly aromatic and only lightly herbal-grassy (very dry, yellow grassiness). Highly attenuated soda bread-like malt notes, carbonic acid and a very clean, mildly crisp yeastiness on the finish. Warming allows light honey, but itís pretty few and far between. Little bit of cardboard/paperiness in the aroma as well.
Wet cardboard and paper are strong in the filtered, extremely light body. Seltzer water and some white bread with a slight bit of honeyish malts are the extent of the main flavor, with strong pepperiness from the hops. Light stints of bitterness provide a cleansing, crisp palate, but it could be 100 times hoppier and still not be overdone. Acetyldehyde present in moderate, but noticeable quantities, giving it that strong, blanding paperiness and light sour apple-like flavor. Highly carbonated, too much so probably. No alcohol evident.
