Well-known Dutch lager, like the other Alfas brewed with their own spring water. Relatively stable, snow white head on a pure golden coloured, cristal clear beer; nose gets floral Saaz hops, a bit of hay, grains and sweetish malts, taste malty, sweetish in onset, towards the end mildly hoppy, and what surprised me the most, was the fact that in spite of it being bottom-fermented, pale and a lager, the alcohol was hardly noticeable. I am a bit surprised by the negative reviews here, but I had it over ten years ago and it may have declined in quality since then, so I guess it’s time to re-rate it. alcohol ondanks de hoge dosis, de ondergisting en de bleke kleur amper merkbaar, zelfs niet in de afdronk

Marduk (5380) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 13, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear amber color. Tiny to almost no head. Sour, malty, minerals, sweet, cereals in aroma. Sweet, malty taste. Horrible brew.

Helder goud bier met inzakkende witte kraag. Geur zoet. Smaak ook zoet, moutig. Net een goedkoop sterk pils.

Aroma of malts, hay, straw. Flavour is malty sweetness, a bit too sweet for my taste. Drinkable but boring.

MichaelAwesome (6297) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 4, 2014
Einfach und simpel. Irgendwie hatte ich etwas Biss erwartet. Aber bis auf etwas Malz, Mais und ein klein wenig Getreide ist da nix erwähnenswertes drin. Herbe Enttäuschung - großer Durchschnit.

McTapps (6341) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - APR 2, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep golden colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of caramel and malt. Taste of mild hops, straw, caramel,barley and light malt. Sweet finish with clear high alcohol moments. Okay but just plain boring and average.

mile (3725) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 2, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and fully diminish head. Moderate malty - lightly grainy and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light bread. Body is medium, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and light bread, light fruitiness - notes of honey. Finish is short to average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light bread, faint hoppyness and light alcohol. Caramel sweetish "helles". Way too sweet for me. Reminds me of those East-European booze-lagers.
