2.73/5 rDev -6.8%
Tasted this beer on tap by half-pint at my local pub. I truly regret to have it for 1.05pounds instead of any decent ale at simply 75pence for half-pint during the beerfestival.
It pours a light golden colour, with abundant carbonation and a negligible head... The nose is dominated by water-biscuity to light cider kind of sourness, while on palate it's refreshingly malty, with lime-peel kind of hoppy bitterness and finished with exactly the same taste. The body is extremely light against its strength(5.2%abv) and overall the mouthfeel and structure is at best mediocre. I can't quite grasp the fact, so it's claimed in the beer catalogue for Wetherspoon's May Beerfestival, that it's the "most popular lager in Belgium"...surely the Belgians know much better and deserve better, even Interbrew's Stella Artois is less boring than this lager?!

2.95/5 rDev +0.7%
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.

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.

3.53/5 rDev +20.5%
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.
