A very light, golden amber colour with a very thin, bubbly white head that is more lacing than anything else.

Very grainy with some lager malts and a basic malty base coupled with some vegetable adjuncts on top.

Sweet malts and some citrus with a hint of skunk in there. Quite grainy with some bread and light hops.

Quite light bodied, fairly skunky and cheap tasting with a sweet but not overly pleasant tang to it.

Cheap and nasty tasting lager, I'm amazed that this is the best selling beer in Belgium and quite frankly it is an awful lager.

On draft at a few bars in Mons, Belgium. This beer is ubiquitous in these parts.

The beer is pale and golden yellow hued with a half inch of white head. A nice appearance for the style. The aroma brings grain, malt, lager scents. The flavor is of macro lager and tastes as if it is mass produced. Grainy finish, lingering bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. This was just ok.

We pour a pale golden brew. It holds a two finger head of fat white bubbles that pillows out of the glass. Retention is decent, and lacing is patterned all the way around the glass. There is full clarity to the beer, with no sediment or haze, and carbonation appears weaker. The aroma opens with adjuncty grain and a waxy, crayon-like quality. On the back there is sweetness of booze and deeper, more toasty caramel malts. Molasses sweetness is light but present. With warmth comes musk, cheddar cheese, and a distant earthy hop. Our first impression is that the grain is quite predominant and rather one dimensional. As we sip, bitter grain and souring lactic acids flow in. These make the base for the entire flavoring. The alcohol comes through as the swallow peaks, affording a spicy bite, and a warm synthetic cherry flavoring. This adds syrupy sweetness for a brief moment, and thickens the beer. We finish with souring adjuncts and flour, but the flavoring drops off readily, and is quickly thinned out by watery wash. The aftertaste breathes of flour, dried grass, white sugar, the faintest grassy hops, and constitutional sourness of grain. The body is lighter, while the carbonation is medium. The mouth is lightly coated with a metallic, slick liquid, and left cooled and happy. There is decent slurp and pop to each sip. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks nicely.

Overall, the thing we liked best about this beer was the cooling aroma and the clean finish to the beer. The nose was softer and less bitter than many of its competitors, and the following taste was equally as pleasant, for the style. Throughout the tasting, however, things never seemed as fresh as they could have been. The flavoring was there, but it was not very robust, deep, or very complex.
