    On the rare instance I make it to Happy Hour, my choice of beer is usually one that can take the edge off without being too expensive (and complex) or too cheap (and cheap-tasting).

The pride of Belgium pours a light golden color with plenty of frothy head and bubbles; a grassy, citrus scent gives way to a smell of slightly skunked beer, which isn't very attractive to say the least. Still, its distinct stink is similar to almost every Euro Pale Lager I've encountered, so methinks its hereditary...
