Netherlands- Euro Pale Lager- 5.0% ABV. Smooth, blended bitterness, clean finish. Wherever you go in the world, it's always refreshing to see something you recognize. That green bottle and red star, like an instant welcome from an old friend. Ice-cold, refreshing Heineken.
American beer lovers traveling through Belgium tend to seek out revered Trappist and Abbey ales, some of which are only available in Belgium. Most Belgians, however, opt to drink the locally brewed, golden, light-bodied Pilsner. Easy to drink, more simple in character and lower in alcohol than most Belgian ale styles, these Euro Pale Lagers are very popular in Belgium.
Lagers represent some of the most approachable, easy-drinking beer styles available, which contributes to Lager’s consumption edge over ale, despite the fact that ale styles are more numerous and were consumed thousands of years before lagering and cold-aging took hold.
