draft, in france, spain and in the US. Bottle can get skunky. Hoppy and well defined for a lager. Slightly bitter, enough for most meals and occations without stading out. rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2005
Bottle (green). Had this beer at a family gathering. My beer was skunked. So were the other guest’s SA beers but that did not seem to bother them. When I asked them what they like about this beer here some of the answers I received : Seem to be popular these days, nice bottle, good commercial ads on TV, it is imported ….To each his own I guess. No need to go any further. Why should I drink a smelly beer when there are outstanding Belgians and local beers on the market. MarkBarnes (418) - Waterville, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2007 12/4/05 : 12 oz. bottle. Not a lot going on here in any department. Completely inoffensive "thirst quencher"/"lawn-mower" brew along the lines of Becks, Heineken or St. Pauli Girl. An overpriced session brew if there ever was one.RazingDreamz (123) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Re-rate on July 12, 2007: Rating this to style this time around, and in a more appropriate season -- which seems more fair. Lasting head, good lacing, pleasant aroma. Nice hop bite for a pilsener. A very refreshing summertime brew, and as good a pale lager as you’re likely to find in the local supermarket.
On tap. Pale-ish yellow, rich foamy white head. Alcohol, seltzer odor. Soapy mouthfeel and aftertaste, mild malts, smooth. DuffMan (10435) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2005
Mainstream European pale lager that does a better job than its American equivalents. Not as much hop character as some of its neighbours, but I like it nonetheless.

Part of a mix-a-six. 11.2 green bottle. Served at ~49° in a lager glass. Super pale yellow/gold with a white, hazy head. Aroma is noble hops, grassy, some (corny?) sweetness. Initial taste is mildly sweet, quite possibly nothing else. The midtaste is grassy, nearly skunky, with some offsetting sweetness. Finish is light and assuming with some grassiness at the end. I have to assume this beer once tasted better than this, but who knows? Better than american macros, though. digitorus (6) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2005 does not count
Slightly bright and bitter aroma, light fizzy head, body is clear with a yellowish cast, crisp flavor, the initial bitterness is somewhat metallic, but the finish is better. Drinkable but lacks character - not one I would buy again. (Now I know why it was on sale.) JRHBrew (367) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 29, 2005
Best part of this beer is the smell. If you are new to beer, do NOT dismiss other Belgian beers because of this one. It is a Lager, not the style that comes to mind when immediately when I think Belgium. FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Tap. Pretty tasty and refreshing. I was surprised to find out this was Belgian. Refreshing, tasty, but nothing super special. PIVOMAN (15) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2005
This is the best pilsner in Belgium and one of the best in the world, if it was up to me. It has a soft taste and the day after you won’t feel like you hit a train with your head.
