Pours clear golden with minimal foamy head. Crisp, clean, slightly corny flavor with mild bitterness that lingers. Seems to have a slightly more biting carbonation than most beers. Overall, unimpressive.

An okay lager. pours straw yellow with big head. The aroma is of grass and is a little sweet. The hops do give it an okay balance. Nothing to rave about. To expensive to just drink in the states

This pint had a slight aroma not unpleasant, I thought the brew was crisp and pretty dry, I felt the head retention was decent. Slight bitter after taste. Will be happy if the lite batch Iím brewing now turns out this good.

Spent $8 for a six pack. Thereís nothing special about this beer, other than the fancy packaging. Ranks with Heineken as another overrated overpriced beer. Bah!

Poured yellow with a foamy white head that stuck around like a freeloading guest. The head and nice lacing could not make up for the average flavor and awkwardly hoppy aftertaste.

Light yellow pour from a tap. Almost no aroma. Typical lager flavour with a tad more bite, and a little bit of pleasant citrus in the finish, perhaps itís from the hops? If Iím going to get a beer from belgium, this isnít it. If I want a light beer, this isnít it.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2006 The yellow, light yellow was far to pee colored for the likes of me. The head was light, though a nice foam for such a small head. The smell, sheesh, like strong American-beer stink. Hoppy finish. Pretty smooth, but relatively uneventful. Ho-hum adequately describes this beer. Wish it lived up to the commercials on its website...Then again, my favorite beers donít have commercials...coincidence? I think not.... ADD-ON: The head just keeps on lingering, a nice foam...and this is a self pour, not from some tap...from the bottle. Amazement and disbelief cover my face. And the lacing has been nice too.

arsenal (10) - Orange, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2006
i donít usually gravitate towards lagers that you can see through, so easily... but i had to satisfy my curiousity, piqued by what little attention it had previously afforded me. at first, i wanted to dismiss it as flavorless American-style. but it was crisp and slightly citrusy. not the "puked-up-a-little" flavor that i am reminded of when i see "Belgium" on the bottle. not exactly my favorite, but a good thirst-quencher low on the alcohol, but on an empty stomach, i can still function rationally. for what that is worth. lots better than expected.

Ritterkreuz (179) - Seneca Falls, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Imported from Belgium to America I figured it would be something different. In the end it reminded me of any regular American Pale Lager, only not as good. Minimal head, and piss yellow. Certainly not worht the $7.49 I payed for it.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 This beer is crisp and smooth but is so boring that I fell asleep drinking it! Not much taste and very homely hops. I will never pay $7.99 a six for this crap again when I can get Shiner Bock, Yuengling, or Sam Adams for the same price or cheaper!
