COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vedett, a blond, light, well hopped premium beer with 5.2% alcohol content, is the cult Duvel Moortgat beer today: following its birth in 1945, it quickly acquired fame and recognition within an intimate circle of insiders in the Antwerp-Brussels region. But do not think for a moment that this oldtimer is thinking about retirement, quite the contrary. For the past years, Vedett has been going through a second childhood in a number of trendy cafés located mainly in big cities. The secret of its charm? A retro-look, a capricious taste, Vedett-allure and the "golden touch" of the brewery. These past years, the brewery armed Vedett with an innovative, hip, young and slightly absurd image. A successful strategy, especially with the youth: Right now, you'll find Vedett in Belgian Delhaize supermarkets and most Flemish cities as well as in Brussels. And the follow-up to the story? You can read it at www.vedett.com.

AshtonMcCobb (4413) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours very pale golden with very gentle bubbles and a decent head which fades to a fine lace layer. The nose has pale malt, and lemon - quite like a German lager if I’m honest. The taste has the taste of a lager bock - more pale malt and citrus and a little bit of sweetness. The palate is medium in structure and texture with a clean finish. Overall, I’m slightly disappointed as it is not as typically Belgian as I had hoped for.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 26, 2011
[330ml bottle, courtesy of MrB] Looks every inch like the classic pilsner - golden yellow, extremely clear pour, decent amount of rising carbonaton. Sharp nose of grassy hop and sweet malt. On the taste, base pilsner flavours of clean, dry hop with a little grassiness. Extremely east to drink [25062011]

This one is pretty easy to drink. Like the fanpictures on the bottle. Smell is not very great. Bit funky.

Pepefromdale (10) - 6963 Dale i Sunnfjord, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2011
This beer is golden in color, it is clear with a small white head. The beer is light in most ways, light sweetness and light bitterness. Body is light and texture is thin. Carbonation is average. Hops seems to be weak floral, malt is breadiness. I cannot recommend this beer, it is way to boring, tastes like many other pilsners. It just shows that belgians know how to make pils, but we knew that.

Bottle in a random Hague bar. Boring style, just a lager with a little citrus flavor

Palme (3604) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2011
0.33l bottle. Pours a clear pale golden body with a small white lager head. Aroma is unfortunately some boiled vegetables, wet cardboard, hay and light grassy - almost herbal. Light bodied and has an average carbonation. Tastes crisp and fizzing, light bitter - near metallic, a bit lemon sour and quite grainy. Not at all what I had expected. A true disappointment. Pleasant finish and a almost creamy aftertaste, but all in all a quite boring pale lager.

Bottle from Oddbins. Corn, cereal & citrus flavour. Dry, biscuit & resin flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Average pale lager.
