33cl Green bottle: BBD of 04 Sep 2013. Poured at home into an 'Augustijn' chalice on 01 Mar 2013.

Looked a typical Lager/Pilsner: golden, clear, clean and bright. Thin wispy white covering also the norm for a head on this style of beer.

Couldn't find any real aromas: sweet hints and maybe a hop or two but not enough to get excited about. Gets my standard score of three for a 'none-smelling' Lager/Pilsner.

The taste was fairly sweet but not as 'super-charged' as some of the high-strength lagers about. This has more subtle flavours and isn't in your face like some of its counterparts.

The front label calls in a 'Luxury Beer', I wouldn't go that far, but it has a presence and doesn't appear to be one of those head-ache inducing heavies that are around.

Sipped slowly it could be from Belgium: rushed and gulped it could be from anywhere your worst nightmares come from. Treat it with respect and you might enjoy it like I have. The sweet front carries on into the finish but the hop content tries to balance it out a little, give it a chance to impress before writting it off.

I drank it with some Chillie Olives, Sour Cream and Onion Crisps, Brie and dry biscuits: the combination seemed to work for me.
