Bottled. Poured a clear bright golden with a towering cap of loose white head. Aroma picked up a fair dose of bready character with light spices, lemon, and nice floral notes. Flavor found sweet breadiness at the core with pleasant and mild floral bitterness eminating outward... some floral and very dry grassy notes round out the finish.. certainly solid for the style. Light-bodied but thick on flavor across the middle.. dry lemony finish. Thought this was tasty and every bit worth the $0.99 I paid for it!

Pours pale yellow / gold with bubbly off-white head. The aroma has light grain, corn and light butteriness. Medium body with medium carbonation. The taste starts with pale malt, some corn and light spicy hops. The finish is pretty much the same. This may not be bad for a pale lager, but it is ridiculously overpriced and mind-numbingly boring.

Light golden color with a medium sized soapy head. Interesting label on the bottle reminds one of the influences of India. Aroma is subtle but grass dominates. Saaz hops seem to be evident in the aroma but not in the flavor. Tartness is noteworthy and some honey can be tasted. It is slightly bitter, as well making a tart, sweet, bitter combination. I give points for that and anything in a pale lager that is unusual should be relished.

Pour is a golden with a white head. Aroma is typical lager. Some breadyness but overall this is wet paper bag. Flavor is horrible. Super tart lemonlike flavor takes over and makes you wince. It may be from Belgium but pass this one by.

Well, I got this beer because the guy at the store recommended it. I think he was just trying to get rid of it. I looked at it and saw that it was Belgian, so I figured it couldn’t be too bad, which it isnt, but it isn’t that good either, especially for a Belgian beer. Has a lot of pale lager characteristics, including being pale yellow and fizzy, light bodied, and with minimal malt and hop flavors. It does leave a bit of lace in the glass, which is a bit redeeming. As for flavor, it has a bit of a soft palate biscuit bread thing going on. Hops are faint and spicy. Not bad I guess, but.........alright, I’ve wasted enough words on this mediocre beer.

The aroma was spicy Saaz hops when first poured. As the beer warmed the aroma became lightly tart with some corn (DMS) and lasting low spicy hops and an earthy presence. The beer poured hazy pale golden with nearly no head at all. The flavor was lightly tart with some caramel and a bit of spicy hops. The flavor was somewhat earthy and had a light corn presence. The body was medium and the carbonation was fairly low. Nothing outstanding about this one, just a boring beer. 500 ml bottle.

330ml brown bottle. Poured very pale straw colour, long lasting billowy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma reveals grassy hops, also some honeylike sweetness. Flavour is minerally, dry, finishes with a dash of grassy hops flavour, trace bitterness. Body is light and watery. A little stale tasting overall.

Hop malt chemical aroma. Clear yellow colour with poor head and lacing. Bitter stale malt flavour with chemical aftertaste. Flat palate.

Chilled 330ml bottle. I’m liking the golden coloured cap, although I have a feeling it goes downhill from there... Not much to the nose, slight sweet maltiness. Pours clean golden body with sizeable white head and lace. Pale malt flavours, reasonably full body, hint of grassy hops, with an odd sharp dry hint of rice towards the finish which i can’t explain to well, unexpected really. Another drinkable but unremarkable pale lager to the list.
