Eulogy Belgian Tavern (Old City) - Belgian Fare and Beer

Located in Philadelphia's historic Old City, sits Eulogy Belgian Tavern. For years, Eulogy Belgian Tavern has been serving up Belgian and American style cuisine. They also have around 20 taps of craft beers and offer around a few hundred bottles of all styles as well.            
Pictured above, is their Moules Beer (Beer Mussels) and Belgian Frietjes. The Beer Mussels were plump and tender and the broth consisted of Hoegaarden beer, garlic, shallots, celery, peppers, herbs and butter. Very good. I really like the big hunk of crusty bread they give you to soak up all the broth too. The Belgian Frietjes were ok. Twice fried, which I really enjoy, but I didn't care for how thick they were. I did, however, really enjoy the two dipping sauces. One was a house specialty mayo moutarde and the other was a slightly spicier bourbon mayo.

For the beer, I went for their house beer, Eulogy Busty Blonde. This beer is brewed exclusively for the bar by Belgium's La Binchoise Brewery. The style is a Belgian Pale Ale.
look: 3
smell: 3.5
taste: 3
feel: 3
overall: 3.2

Appears a semi-clear golden yellowish color with no head or lacing.

Smell is herbal and some light citrus notes. A very slight amount of hops.

Taste is of spices and some citrus.

Mouthfeel is light. This beer is very drinkable. Overall, this beer is ok. With all the other options here, I'd go for something else.
