Classy golden can with nice horse logo in the bus home from Brussels. Sweet malts, bitter raw green beans and sugar. Medium sweet and light bitter. Under medium body, average carbonation. Bitter sweet malty finish.

Can as Buval, road soda in FlixBus bought at Brussels North nightshop. I used to play in a band that had a song about the original Karlsquell beer, let’s see if this lives up to that. Drank from the can which looks like a fake Jupiler one, I guess the beer is pale golden but who knows! Some sweet malts, dusty herbs, light puke, metallic, corn, rice. Almost medium sweet with light bitter finish. About medium bodied. Another quality Martens product. No need to write a song about it.

Wypite jako Buval. Złote, klarowne. Aromat przyjemny, lekko zbożowy. W smaku średnia goryczka. Nie jest bardzo szlachetna, ale przyjemna. Bardzo przyjemnie połączona z nutą słodową.

Great budget pils @33 cent for a 33cl can bought at Aldi ("DUVAL" brand). I drink this ice-cold and love it. Better than Jupiler, Maes or Stella (the big 3). Price/quality 10/10 (also according to Test Aankoop).

Under name of Buval. Nothing to say, supermarket weak pils. Anyway, ones I was in the Maledives islands without anything reasonable to drink for three weeks (no beer, no wine). To find there a fridge full of Buval could be a most beautiful miracle but it did not happened... [email protected]

First rating as a dad :-). Alone at home. Clear goldblond colored beer with medium white head and lots of carbonation. Fruited hopped aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sweet bitter with a dry touch.

330 ml. can sampled as Buval XD. Purchased @ Aldi. BBF 13/11/16. Clear pale golden, chemical paper-white fizzy head that is almost instantly gone. Nose is hugely mineral, touch vegetable stock, cooked vegetables & cooked apple. Taste is very watery, fizzy, washing powder, cardboard, hugely mineral, finish is this unpleasant thin lingering chemical bitterness. Hugely watery & fizzy. I am honestly rather surprised that a beer that tastes & feels thin watery and thin is actually 5 % ABV. Finish is not pleasant at all, none of the tastes are palatable. You know why this exists & you know why people buy, any tasting notes other than my baby sips didn’t make me blind are pointless (the intended crow is never going to read this review).

Een zeer flauw bier, weinig of geen smaak. Ik zou het geen tweede keer drinken.

33cl can at home (18 IX 2015), drank as "Buval". Bright, clear and very pale looking yellow lager with beautiful fluffy white collar. The aromas are nearly non-existing. Maybe some subtle yeast and malts flavours... yet I can’t tell from the very faint features. The taste is flat, that’s foru sure, but the lager is not as watery as one would expect. It has a light body of malts, corn, some yeast. A thin weak pilsener. A good drinker though. It only lacks body, bitterness and some interesting carbonation.

kraddel (6874) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2015
Can. Pours clear blonde, no real head. Smell is chemically sweet. Taste is more to the bitter side, grainy and crispy. Much lager yeast. only mildly sweet. Actually, this is very ok ...
