Meh.

A Lidle store just opened in our community. It's pronounced like "needle". It's a German grocery store, and it's claim to fame is that it has its own store brands that are as good as the real thing. I like Monster Energy, and they have a knock off, Mega Energy, that is better tasting than Monster. They have knock off Budweiser and Heineken if you like sewage. And they import a variety of German beers. This is one of them.

It's ok. It's cheap. It has 6.3S% alcohol in 11 oz. bottles so you can get stoned if you drink enough. I'm not going to sit here and sing alabanzas about it, but it stands up there with any craft ale but at a much, much lower price, if that means anything to you.

From Alcampo. In Grimbergen glass. Watching MacFarland. Typical notes of a belgian pale ale well balanced, smooth and with the alcohol well hidden. However, ends a bit drier than Id like. Miss sweetness

Looks great, although a touch tart on the old nasal passages, once in the trap, this blonde is a real goer! A foaming head which sticks, and slightly sweet with a hint of caramel about it, a real thirst quencher at 6.3%. It is definitely a Leffe blonde beater for a lowly priced beverage.

My advice is to stock up on this when you see it, and save for a summers day beer session.......that said I seldom stock up on anything before it gets quaffed!

From the bottle, it pours a hazy amber with a moderately large head that remains awhile. A bit of yeasty bread in the nose. The flavor is light and bready. Easy drinking Belgian with a bit of a kick.
