Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2006
Draft, Golden yellow coloured, with some light carbonation and a small white head. Sweeter malty aroma. Medium body. Finish is sweet, very little bitter. Normal sweeter pale lager, nothing to special.

goozen (3729) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2006
In the Netherlands most selled beer. A golden sweet lager with a nice head. A duller standard than Heineken.

I think that this beer is actually better than Heineken. It has a more full flavour and tastes more like a real beer than a cheap beer. I kind of wonder why they don’t really sell this in America and instead sell only the infereor light version of this. The Dutch are scoffing at us right now.

Borup (10702) - Albertslund, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Hoppy aroma and flavour of hops and malt as well as flavour.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2006
A very ordinary lager that is at best good for thirst-quenching in the sun. Not very exciting.

You can’t move for crates of this stuff in the Mediterranean. Or Albania. No idea why. OK, it’s a sweet, malty, candyish clear gold lager with a hint of hop bitterness. But certainly nothing worth importing by the shipping container load. But if Vergina’s the alternative, mine’s an Amstel. (Re-rate 13/10/06. Draught UK half. Crisp, bready, malty refreshment. A touch of almost smoky dryness. Different beer to the GK version, and a different class.)

LeoN (26) - Athens, GREECE - OCT 2, 2006
Bottle (330ml & 500ml) and Tap. Not bad, reminds Heineken, you can find it everywhere. Drinkable

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2006
(Canned, brewed in Greece) Clear golden color with a medium head. Sweet-honeyish, corny-malty, lightly grassy-hoppy aroma. Bittersweet, lightly acidic flavor with some smooth maltiness and sweet honey in the finish. Light to medium-bodied, semi-sweet palate with soft carbonation. This was actually a surprisingly nice bulk lager, with smooth mouthfeel and a clean, sweet-honeyish flavor, with the acidity in control. Very easy to drink - a basic lager in its purest form.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - AUG 16, 2006
A fairly lackluster lager, this is neither offensive no appreciable. I had this while dining out with the family and while suprised to find this offered (and it was better than the BMC garbage offered) it wasn’t really much other than an average, run of the mill lager. Nothing offensive in the nose, malts & grains. Appearance is nice to look at. Mouthfeel is rather dull and lifeless, and so is the taste. Fortunately, there was little/no skunk involved. The beer was wet, cold and went well with dinner. Other than that I doubt it warrants a revisit.
