A very full body and rich beer overall. The appearance of it is a light yellow color with the smell being a sweet earthy and almost faint smell. The taste is crisp and refreshing for a beer and overall very tasty. Mostly a mans beer but a good beer overall none the less. I would for sure buy this at a bar or in store even

If you're looking for a light lager, this is it! This is definitely my favorite beer - although I have recently getting into beer tasting. Love how foamy it is (and it lasts too!) and the flavor is just right! It's not too strong like dark beers thankfully (although I like that at times), and it has an awesome drinkability.

I understand it seems a lot of people in this website like strong heavy beers, so if that's the case I guess this is not it for you, but to me this beer is perfect!

My latest desperation beer choice at a restaurant that basically has good food but swill for beer.

Had a paper thin head when the waiter brought it to me. Nice clear gold appearance. Smelled of...Nothing, really except maybe a hint of skunk.

Taste was grainy, slightly sweet and very dull. Nothing grabbed my attention or kept my interest. Watery mouthfeel with a decent amount of carbonation.

It's been a while since a had a beer so boring I kept forgetting it was sitting in front of me! Never again.

Belgian in origin, but not at all representative of the region's preferred/famous style, this pale golden lager with a thick lace does manage to stand out among the plethora of mainstream lagers out there. The scent is almost floral - a definite spicy, hoppy sharpness and presence. The taste follows this, with more complexity and depth than similar brews. Not half bad, and a solid step in-between mainstream and craft beer.

I picked this up around Christmas of 2013 at the HEB in McAllen, Texas, there was nothing special to it, and it is one of the pourest beers from Belgium. It poured golden, was cloudy, with a soapy head, and lots of carbonation. It tasted like any other massed pale ale, with a watery taste, little edge, low alcohol content, and not filling.

11.2 oz botlle into a pint glass.
A: A pale golden appearance, with a white head. Head does not stay long
S; A fishy aroma mixed with a bold corn/grain aroma.
T/M: A vey typical lager mouthfeel, with a basic grainy taste. Not much to the body of this beer. Mouthfeek is a bit bland.
D: easy to put down, but not calling me back from the taste.

This was my go-to beer before I discovered anything besides this the american standards. The fun gold trimmmed glass they served it in made me feel special and looking back, that was all pretensious. Hind sight is 20/20

It's good enough for a 20 something who doesn't care about flavors, pairing with food and is drinking something besides the other american standards.

The appearance is honey and light

The smell is sweet. earty, faint.

The taste is a little on the bland side of things, knowing what I know now- I don't know if I would order this beer. But back when I knew everything - this beer was great.

The mouthfeel is carbonation overload, sweet, simple.

The overall - this beer is drinkable, maybe not likeable, but it's drinkable.

I can't complain about this beer, wasn't anything exceptional, but it also wasn't a bad beer either. Had a spicy taste in front of a crisp wheet taste. Smell was kind of grainy. Appearance was golden yellow with a 3 cm foam head pure white. Mouthfeel was crisp, sort of wattery though. Very drinkable though, finished a tall of it with some salmon for dinner.

Served from tap into a Weizen glass. Pours a golden yellow with one finger white head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of wheat and citrus. The flavor was of citrus and slight malt. It was light on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this was a very refreshing brew. Not my favorite brew I've had, but definitely not the worst. This is the one I go with for a lighter brew when the other options are not good.

Visual Appeal: very translucent, paler gold than Pilsner Urquell

Smell: pleasant pilsner hop aroma

Flavor: average hop bitterness, pilsner-like taste, but pretty thin

Mouthfeel: extremely thin, barely any zing available

Drinkability: I might have a few with some food, but I would not drink this by itself

Presently on tap at the house and drinking one right now. Definetly much better on draft than bottle. Very decent pour. Beautiful creamy head, even in a plastic cup. Very nice. The beer has a nice golden appearance. Definitely not a heavy European lager, a bit on the light side, not bitter at all. Would recommend this one to someone looking to get away from domestics and into the European market. Not bad for a mass marketed inexpensive European.
