Pale gold color. Nose grain, like the mouth that tastes also cereals. The smell is quite unique grain and easily identifiable. The body is light at first but with a mouth-taste with a bitter taste characteristic of the Jupiler which is not really nice and comes quickly in the mouth. You can feel the finish of the bitterness of cereal a little dirty but pronounced.

Even Belgium can produce run of the mill beer. A malty pale lager with silky mouthfeel, but light in the flavor department. Not much going here, but one of the most widely consumed beers in Belgium.

500 ml red can with "50cl MAXI' on band around top - brought back direct from Belgium (Thanks for sharing, Jeff). Pours OK, clear, blonde color, with a 1 inch head. Although it is highly carbonated, foam quickly disappears. Smell is of some grain and alcohol. Not much taste to speak of. Obviously meant to be light and refreshing - like water on a hot day. Overall, a pretty basic brew, comparable toaother macros here. I do like the crest on the label - a bull doing his best Karate Kid stance.

Appearance: brilliant with a light golden colour. White and foamy head with moderate size and good retention (a little bit of lacing).
Aroma: kind of weak. Grains with some citrus notes.
Taste: simple bitter herbal hops flavour.
Mouthfeel: drying sensation. Medium to low carbonation, average alcoholic strength, medium to light body.
Finish: lingering bitter aftertaste.
Overall: refreshing and crisp lager. Enjoyable quenching beer for a hot day.

Had this beer on tap in the European Union Area of Brussels. The beer looks like a typical pilsner, with a nice white head. The smell is nothing special, and the taste has some strange malty sweetness mixed with the regular bitterness that a pilsner should have. A decent beer for a hot summer day, where as other people also mentioned, any other pilsner would do. Only I didn't like the this type of sweetness in this beer....

33cl Brown bottle (best before 21 Sep 2001) drank and reviewed 7 Jan 2011.

So this is Belgiums best selling beer, lets see why!

Poured into my stemmed 'Veltins' pilsner glass.

Pale golden in colour, clear and bright. Large snowy white head on top. Looked like a lager/pilsner/etc.

Minute hop aroma with a touch of cereal grain type esters.

Fairly bland, with only a hint of hops to give it any true flavours. It isn't sweet, nor is it bitter or sour. It does become a mouth drying lager as the beer leaves your throat, but it isn't a hop bitterness type of dryness, more a cardboard sort of dryness.

The sort of beer you'd want to quench your thirst after some hard labour and before having something you liked!

So why is so popular with Belgians? I blame the advertising industry (and InBev or whatever their name is at the moment), plus the ignorance of some Belgians when it comes to matters about beer. I'm sure that something simular could be said about the most popular beer in your country, no matter what it is!
