On draft at a few bars in Mons, Belgium. This beer is ubiquitous in these parts.

The beer is pale and golden yellow hued with a half inch of white head. A nice appearance for the style. The aroma brings grain, malt, lager scents. The flavor is of macro lager and tastes as if it is mass produced. Grainy finish, lingering bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. This was just ok.

We pour a pale golden brew. It holds a two finger head of fat white bubbles that pillows out of the glass. Retention is decent, and lacing is patterned all the way around the glass. There is full clarity to the beer, with no sediment or haze, and carbonation appears weaker. The aroma opens with adjuncty grain and a waxy, crayon-like quality. On the back there is sweetness of booze and deeper, more toasty caramel malts. Molasses sweetness is light but present. With warmth comes musk, cheddar cheese, and a distant earthy hop. Our first impression is that the grain is quite predominant and rather one dimensional. As we sip, bitter grain and souring lactic acids flow in. These make the base for the entire flavoring. The alcohol comes through as the swallow peaks, affording a spicy bite, and a warm synthetic cherry flavoring. This adds syrupy sweetness for a brief moment, and thickens the beer. We finish with souring adjuncts and flour, but the flavoring drops off readily, and is quickly thinned out by watery wash. The aftertaste breathes of flour, dried grass, white sugar, the faintest grassy hops, and constitutional sourness of grain. The body is lighter, while the carbonation is medium. The mouth is lightly coated with a metallic, slick liquid, and left cooled and happy. There is decent slurp and pop to each sip. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks nicely.

Overall, the thing we liked best about this beer was the cooling aroma and the clean finish to the beer. The nose was softer and less bitter than many of its competitors, and the following taste was equally as pleasant, for the style. Throughout the tasting, however, things never seemed as fresh as they could have been. The flavoring was there, but it was not very robust, deep, or very complex.

served on tap

A- pale golden colour with some visible carbonation. Perfectly white 1 and a half finger head, decent retention and nice amounts of lacing

S- Grainy malts with a bit of a herbal feel on the back, slightly metallic

T- Slightly crisp grainy/crackery malts. Herbal/grassy hops with a touch of lemon in the finish. maybe some faint floral notes. Some real bitterness can be easily detected, this is actually a decently solid, real beer

M- Light, quite watery in body, appropriate for the style. Average carbonation, not overwhelmingly fizzy like most pale lagers

O- Easy drinker, decent taste. Good as a quick refreshing beer

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.

The brew is clear golden straw colored, has a white head that settles rather quickly but leaves good lacing, some curtains.

Smelling sweet corn flakes and boiled vegetables.

Starting with some white bread, lemon and orange peel.

Medium carbonation, medium sized bubbles, rather refreshing, medium body, a dry finish.

An average pale lager, on the plus side not too sweet.
