Pours pale golden and clear. Aroma is somehow disgusting. Taste is mild, grassy and boring.

Hugh (153) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2004
Tasted alongside some other pale lagers this was distinctly in the bottom percentile. Drab ordinary lager. However, having an entire crate of this stuff to plough through, I have noticed another peculiarity. If I drink one of these, I don’t sleep well. Any other beer & I sleep soundly, but there’s something in this one which keeps me from sleep. Not in a nice way.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2006
Alarmingly clear yellow color that.. oh crap, it is a pale lager. Bitter aroma a little skunky. No hops, but the rice is noticible. If I had read pale lager on the label, I wouldn’t have bought it.

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Nice head and lacing. OK, that’s about it for positives. Yellow colored, very clear liquid. Not much aroma, citrus flavor (no indication of citrus on the label - but then there isn’t much on this label); very crisp, champagne-like carbonation. This is definitely a pilsner but not a very good example.

locarboy (129) - USA - MAY 30, 2007
50 cl bottle. poured golden with a big bubbley head. not very complex. can taste a bready grain with subtle citrus and floral notes. yep, hops are there, but not very distiguished. i thought that a belgian would be better...you know, given that duval and all of those abbey ales are so terrific. won’t buy again at over $3.

This beer is not worth the money needed to obtain it, it’s tates is like that of miller highlife’s minus the potato chips.

Bought some at 50p ($1) a bottle from my local branch of the Consumers Champion. I was ripped off :-( Undrinkable.

I like this beer. Very crisp. I suggest that anyone who enjoys a nice Pilsner to check this beer out. I agree with the posters who said that this is a beer that will go best with a nicely spicy meal - Indian food obviously springs too mind. On its own I can see the beer generating mixed feelings. Buy a bottle and try it out before committing more money.
