3.55/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 500mL tall can into a pint glass.

Appearance: rich golden hue with a haze-free body and a pretty strong effervescence. Head is two fingers of frothy white foam leaving a nice lace on the glass. Pretty damn good looking!

Smell: sweet and grainy; reasonable for the style but not terribly character-ful.

Taste: similar to the aroma; lightly sweet malt with a bit of graininess. The balance is pretty good, though, and it comes off as more appealing than the aroma.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good carbonation and a reasonably good creaminess.

Overall: the flavor is pretty good and its refreshment quotient seems pretty high. It's a darn drinkable beer; I'll have to remember it for tailgating!

i bought this beer because the price was comparable to one of the 3 big American beers that i normally drink. i figured that a bottom shelf Belgium beer would still be much better than what normally drink. it is not better. it is bitter and not in a good way. it left an after-taste than is unacceptable. the buzz was only fair.
