As far as I can tell, this is the local substitute for budweiser in Brussels. It is the cheap fizzy lager that everyone in every cheaper bar buys by the caseload while watching whatever the most interesting sporting event is. I my opinion, it is better than bud/miller/colors/fosters by a small margin. The hops strike with a bit more edge, and the malts are just as good. Light yellow body with tons of bubbles. This takes 3rd place in my personal line up of macros, behind viru and Nile special. (497 characters)

Presentation: Small 25cl (8oz +/-) brown bottle. - Brasserie Jupiler Brouwerij

Appearance: Crystal clear, yellow straw colour with a fine white lace.

Smell: A bit grassy from the hops, probably aged Saaz hops, very mellow and distinct. Touch of pale malt aroma.

Taste: Very light, crisp, smooth with a touch of mouth coating diacetyl. Faint malt flavour, grassy bitterness, turning dry at the end. Cotton mouth finish, which is not pleasant.

Notes: Not too bad. Not fantastic either, but, we would definitely not dump this. (535 characters)

Had this several times in Belgium. It was commonly served in small, ridged glasses which would raise the fingers from the glass surface and keep the beer cooler, for longer. Not a bad brew, refreshing. (201 characters)

This seemed to be the swill of Brussels ... beer for the masses though few real cafes carried it. (97 characters)

25 cl bottle wth a twist cap.
This is a very enjoyable beer. Maybe it's because this is my first beer after a long day of hiking. Or maybe it's because I am drinking it from a seaside balcony in southern Crete. Or perhaps I've had too many mediocre Euro Pale lagers lately. It any case, it has a light, citrusy flavor that is quite refreshing. I do wish it was bolder, but it is certainly more enjoyable than the BA rating suggests. (435 characters)

This poured to a decent light and bright golden yellow with a small head that quickly faded. There's no lace.

The smell isn't very good, but still not as offensive as some others in this style. The taste follows that up in a similar manner. Hops come through in the wrong sort of way, and it's definitely too sharp in the mouth. (331 characters)

Looks good poured the standard Belgian bar way, 2-finger head scraped off at the top. Light hop scent. Great beer for an all night social event, nothing too serious here, very fresh and dry, even tinny. Like its sister brands (Stella, Maes, Martens, etc.), soft texture and goes down fast. My personal choice for a fun night out. (329 characters)
