Martens Pilsener

Martens Pilsener is produced by Brewery Martens out of Bocholt, Belgium. I picked up a couple of 500mL cans on a trip to Niagara Falls, and brought one home to review. It clocks in at 5% and pours a clear, straw-gold colour. Martens is capped with a thick, fluffy white head.

The beer has a crisp, sweet aroma with notes of apples and pears. Pretty full-bodied for a pilsner (or pilsener), Martens has pleasant fruity notes and some grassiness. There isn't a lot of bitterness, but just enough is present to provide excellent drinkability.

Crisp, refreshing, and a bit different--this is a pilsner I want to have in my fridge, particularly during summer and fall months.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
