S: Smells of classic Pilsener
T: Pilsener basic, better than the previous version
M: not last long, slightly bitter with a little grain
D: Getting drunk easily but without much flavor
Lager number two in Belgium, without strong business and great flavor without much originality. At deserves better than her big sister, Jupiler.
Serving type: can

Had on tap at some random restaurant I stopped in in Antwerp, I think it was called De Herk.
Pours a decent 1.5 finger head that fades semi slowly with a layer of thin lacing, crystal clear watery golden pilsner color.
Nose is very muted, just a touch of grainy toasty pilsner malts, and perhaps some grassy hops but hard to tell since it's so light.
Taste continues with light characters, faint toasty pilsner malts, light husk that isn't a good husk, little grassy hop character. At least the finish is dry and crisp, but it has to be with that little malt.
Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb at least.
Overall meh, not too bad as there aren't really any off flavors, but really light like they used corn or other adjuncts to fill it out, so light it's like drinking flavored water.
Serving type: on-tap
