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.

On-tap at a little café halfway between De Heeren van Liedekerke and the Liedekerke train station. I got a bottle of Hanssens Geuze to pass the time, but when my friend offered me some of her Jupiler to do a review I couldn't say no.

A: Clear straw body with fizzy carbonation filling out the thin white head. Ok retention, decent lace. Not bad.

S: Rather heavy, husky malt. Just pure grain. Pretty average.

T: Smooth malt, with both grainy and bready notes. Some light toffee toward the finish, and solid bitterness on the end. Pleasant enough.

M: Light and fizzy, becoming creamy after a moment. Ok.

O: Nothing I'd ever order when in Belgium, but somewhat better than your average fizzy yellow beer.

Cheers!

Bottle of 250 ml.
Pours a golden yellow color with a two finger head that slowly dissolves, leaving light to almost none lacing on the glass. Medium amount of bubbles rising and lots of them on the glass's wall.
Malty aroma and some hops.
Taste is very flat, nothing distinguishable.
Medium thickness and light carbonation.

Jupiler on draft at 't lammetje in Brugge. 25 cl. Straw color. High clarity. White fluffy head. High retention. Pilsner aroma, light fresh hops. Taste, lightly bitter, slight sweetness, similar to a German pils. Can't even tell the difference. Decent beer.

On Tap at the Aulde Dubliner

Appearance – Clear yellow colour with an avergae size fizzy white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for 2 or 3 minutes.

Smell - Grains, bread, malts, light hops

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste malts mixed with light hops and a grassiness. There is also a bit of a pear or apple sweetness. Not a whole lot of taste going on. It ends with a grainy bland aftertaste.

Overall – Nothing special going on here.. high drinkability but nothing that sets it apart from other beers in its style category. It's basically the same as something like a Stella Artois.
