3.16/5  rDev +7.8%

From an 11.2 oz can (dated July 2, 2014) into a pint glass.

A-A normal pour produces a light, yellow-gold brew with a thin, white head that drops quickly. No lacing, not much activity in the beer.

S-The smell is slightly grainy with a mild hop bite. There isn't much here, but a little whiff of banana reminds you that this is a Belgian beer. Conversely, a touch of skunk reminds you that this is a canned, macro-style lager.

T-The taste is mild like the smell, but with less intrigue. The brew is grainy, with a hint of toast, and only a minute kick of skunky, bitter hops.

F-The feel is light to medium with a tinny, slightly fizzy carbonation.

O-This brew is ubiquitous in the old country, but that doesn't make it great. Anyway, I would rank Jupiler one or two small notches above a BMC macro AAL type lager if only for the slightly interesting smell and the slightly heavier mouthfeel.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
