The first Belgian take on the American "ice" lager substyle, and fortunately the last. Commercially hyped in the nineties but discontinued after some years due to lack of success - a sign the Belgians still know to a certain degree which beers to ignore. A bit stronger than Maes Pils, but little taste, some malt sweetness, slick, almost no hops noticeable. Just a bland lager and below average. Fortunately a shadow from the past now.

this bear has no taste, it’s a commercial bear and I won’t even give this beer to my dog JLCreemers (8) - BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2010 does not count
As I don’t like Maes, I didn’t like their ’cool’ either. Too cold for a complex taste. oberabcbbsok (692) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2007
A special pils that should be drunk cold that is why the name. Still to sweet for a pilsener Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Pale golden, decent head. I had expected a pils with all flavours removed. Instead I get a rather strong lager with lots of sweetness. They forgot the hops in this. Not very well made. 310397

Far better than it’s bigger brother.
Is getting really hard to get here in Belgium, if it is still available at all ...

A very blond beer with a medium head. Weak yeast and wood aroma. Very flat with a yeasty taste. jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2002
Light horseblanket malt aroma. Pale golden, fair lace. Little bitterness, plastic, watery, short finish. Where are the hops? Overall unbalanced and tasteless. OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2002
Pale gold clear with fine bubbled bright white short lasting head. Very faint bitter hops and stale malt aroma. A very light watery flat lemonade style body and light bitter finish. What a depressingly characterless excuse for a beer. Not awful, but close.I can see the serious Belgians staying away from this one in droves.
