Bottle. Pale yellow colour with a large white head. Malty aroma with a touch of citrus and hops. Light, pretty clean tasting, hoppy- ish with a bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours very pale with a fluffy white head. Smells a bit sharp and at the same time a bit musty. Flavour is thirst-quenchingly dry with quite a bit of citrus and grapefruit. Finish is sharp, turning sour. All in all a pretty standard euro pils.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 Rerate bottle, bought at Vinmonopolet: With a brisk pour you get a very large and lasting head, and the carbonation is not too much after all. Fairly decent hops place this pils in the "slightly above average" category. I’m upping it 1 point. Original rating: 330 ml bottle, as Vedett Extra Blond, ABV is 5.2%. Courtesy of Cardinal, Stavanger. Also available in Norway in Vinmonopolet stores (bestillingsutvalget). The beer’s website is www.vedett.com . Served in Duvel glass (same brewery). Very pale colour, decent head. Moderately hoppy aroma, notes of cardboard and "dusty attic". Flavour is moderately hoppy - this is an average pils. A bit too carbonated for my taste.

Pale yellow colour, average white head. Deep hoppy aroma. Smouth taste, medium body. Finish is dry and light bitter, crispy. Not bad.

Bottle: I bought this is one Sao Paulo in a Gourmet Shop for $7! Coming from Moortgat I expected more; very fizzy, minimal head, taste is watery but refreshing. No nasty aftertaste, overall just OK.

Yellow-blond beer, big white foam and intensive livelyness. Clean malty aroma’s, some fruits and some dry hoopyness. Taste is clean, blond malts, some citrus hints and faint hoppy bitterness in the finish. Nice refreshing blond beer.

It’s a general pilsener with a nice appearance. Also general taste, a bit on the lighter side then average.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2008 A Mes rate:
Well erm... it’s a lager and I generally dont like them too much and this is no different. Thin and lifeless. Nothing to write home about.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2005 Just like most Belgian pilsners. There is some carbonation and a bittery and hoppy taste. Not good not really bad. I expected much more from a pilsner by moortgat. (Bottle 33cl)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very light blond color. Too light aroma. Simple taste, dry, a bit spicy, some very light citrus fruits, partially aromatic hopping; better when warmer. Strong bitterness. Acceptable as table Pilsener otherwise quite useless.
