On tap at the Cafe Leffe in the Sablon area of Brussels, just down the street from our hotel.

A Lager look under a 2 inch head.

S Slightly sweet lager. Not interesting.

T As I suspected (which is why I put off tasting and rating this beer until the last moments of my trip) very close to water, a hint of sweetness and some barley. That is about it.

M Thin, weak.

D Good drinkability but then again so is water.

Notes: I had to try it when in Belgium but now I will not likely again!

It was on tap at the Italian trattoria Zilli in Arnhem.

Just a ordinairy pilsener to me. Bright yellow wit a medium head. Very light body, hardly any hops, some grains and a bittersweet aftertaste.
A typical beer to flush away some food or to drink on a hot summernight when any cold pilsener will do.

BB 31-12-05. Hardly any foam and collapsing fast. Pale golden beercolor. Smell is creamy, unfresh malty, papery and hardly any hoparome. Very oxidated and unenjoyable.
Taste is like nose was being oxidated, empty, creamy and aftertaste is litle sweet-bitter. Lack of taste and lots of off tastes make this brew unenjoyable.

Light color, minimal head, no retention.

Light smell as well - a standard lager.

Mild taste. Pretty bland. Near end of glass is straight up gross tasting.

Watery, moderate carbonation

Easy to drink just to drink lots. Would never sit down and "enjoy" a jupiler.

I like to call this a drinking game beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

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.

Pale gold color. Nose grain, like the mouth that tastes also cereals. The smell is quite unique grain and easily identifiable. The body is light at first but with a mouth-taste with a bitter taste characteristic of the Jupiler which is not really nice and comes quickly in the mouth. You can feel the finish of the bitterness of cereal a little dirty but pronounced.

500 ml red can with "50cl MAXI' on band around top - brought back direct from Belgium (Thanks for sharing, Jeff). Pours OK, clear, blonde color, with a 1 inch head. Although it is highly carbonated, foam quickly disappears. Smell is of some grain and alcohol. Not much taste to speak of. Obviously meant to be light and refreshing - like water on a hot day. Overall, a pretty basic brew, comparable toaother macros here. I do like the crest on the label - a bull doing his best Karate Kid stance.

Appearance: brilliant with a light golden colour. White and foamy head with moderate size and good retention (a little bit of lacing).
Aroma: kind of weak. Grains with some citrus notes.
Taste: simple bitter herbal hops flavour.
Mouthfeel: drying sensation. Medium to low carbonation, average alcoholic strength, medium to light body.
Finish: lingering bitter aftertaste.
Overall: refreshing and crisp lager. Enjoyable quenching beer for a hot day.
