Girardin is renowned for its excellent lambic and geuze, so it is all the more surprising that they also brew this pale lager; however, it seems they use this to dilute the white label geuze they make, and frankly, I do not see any better use in it. Still, a more than decent ’pils’, malty sweet with a slightly smoky hint, light on the tongue with a subdued but honest and refreshing hop bitterishness in the finish. In all, way better than your average macro standard lager.
