Martens Pils Beer from Belgium?

Martens PilsThis was just a random beer from United's Red Carpet Club at Hong Kong airport. Its aftertaste wasn't something that I particularly enjoyed, but it helped take off the edge after this long overseas flight (and especially since the air conditioning at the airport here didn't seem to be working very well today). Is it really from Belgium like the can states though? The lightness of it doesn't seem too fitting, reminding me a bit of local Chinese beers instead.

It's genuine indeed, brewed in Bocholt/Belgium. Neither a typical belgian beer though, nor the best. Martens is (in)famous for supplying a major german discount retailer with quasi-generic brand beer.
