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.

It isn't often that I go from one of the best beers in the world (Westvleteren) to one of the more common (Jupiler) in just a matter of two hours. I had a bottle at a cafe which was on the Belgium-France border outside Watou. On to the beer:

This beer is pale gold colored with a short head and decent retention. It smells of a strange iron, and it also smells of a standard malted barley. The taste at least is a small improvement over the aroma. It starts with vague cereals and some DMS. Is there fermenting asperagus in this beer? A dry barley note and slight fruitness bring a little rescue effort to the beer, making it half-decent. The beer is light bodied and "soapy", and okay with the drinkability.

Eh, it's okay. It's probably better than a skunked Stella though.

On-tap at Cafe Katoen, Amsterdam, Netherlands

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down but left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of bready malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of bready and grainy malts along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium- bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is easy to drink and tastes like an average pale lager, but without any flavors of adjunct malts.

2.43/5  rDev -17.1%

Served on-draught into a 25cl glass in a bar in Belfort, France. Reviewed from notes taken in Summer 2011.

A: Pours a two finger head, fluffy white, with light cream, fair thickness, and good retention. Body colour is a semitransparent crystal yellow.

Sm: A light aroma of barley and crystal malts. Hopping is generic floral.

T: Light barley foundation with some pleasant smooth cream. A handful of crystal malts. Floral hops. Pretty simple but refreshing. Maybe a buried hint of lime? Balanced.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Complements the flavour profile okay.

Dr: Below average in quality. Priced highly at 3 euro for 25cl (by French standards). Hides its average ABV okay. Meh. Not very good stuff.

1.88/5  rDev -35.8%

A very light, golden amber colour with a very thin, bubbly white head that is more lacing than anything else.

Very grainy with some lager malts and a basic malty base coupled with some vegetable adjuncts on top.

Sweet malts and some citrus with a hint of skunk in there. Quite grainy with some bread and light hops.

Quite light bodied, fairly skunky and cheap tasting with a sweet but not overly pleasant tang to it.

Cheap and nasty tasting lager, I'm amazed that this is the best selling beer in Belgium and quite frankly it is an awful lager.
