2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Brussells beer week. Pours light golden with a thin white head. Crisp and lightly hopped nose with a bit of a metallic note. Hops were spicy and the malts were dry grainy tasting. Very watery flavor. Not as crisp and lively flavor as a pils and not much belgian yeast character to it.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 Nov, 2006 Cafe Belge, Eastbourne. Sharply carbonated. Served very cold. Little flavour comes through. Soft and bland. [2.2]
Jan, 2008 EuroStar buffet. Extra Blond - 5.2%. A pale lager with a creamy carbonation and a herbal finish. Not offensive - quite refreshing. I thought I had a scoop on the train, but come home to find I had already had it! [2.3]

Bottle at Loosje, A’dam. This pilsener is all the rage in Brussels, so wanted to try. It’s Duvel like, but much milder. Yellow beer, pleasant, not much aftertase, goes down very well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow beer with big white foam. Fine pils aroma with some herbs in the nose. Clean taste and very drinkable. Afthertaste is on the light basis and ends with the smell of freshly cut grass and a pils like maltyness.

From bottle. Hazy pale yellow pour with wispy white head. Nose has flower petal hints. Flavor is sharp pear skins with a light yeasty spice. OK.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
33CL stubby bottle. Lightly hazy straw, thin ring of a white head. Very weak nose, slightly sour yeast. Thin bubbly body. Almost devoid of flavor, a bit of grass and herbal hop. Nothing to it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale golden/straw with a big sticky cap of head. Fresh herbal soapy hops. A clean smell. Lots of Saaz character: dill, mint, hay. A pleasant amount of hop flavor but very low bitterness. A little yeasty bread in the finish. Soft clean palate. I don’t usually bother much with pils, but I liked this. A solid little beer.

I just tasted this when in Antwerpen. They must have bleached it, because it was barely yellow. I’ve never tasted a pils with this lack of flavor. It was like water. An ordinary Tuborg pils has more taste, and that’s saying a lot. I wonder what Belgium was thinking when they made this...
