330 m. bottle. Clear glolden colour, medium head with that dissappears quickly, leaving rings on the glass as you drink. Smell is nothing but grain and hops. Light palate, watery. Taste of grains, herbs and it reminds me somehow of Heineken because of some taste of pear. Metallic notes and some citrus in the end. Just your average mass market beer.

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
