Heineken, Becks, etc etc... not much difference. Not bad though. Nice color considering the style. Pleasent but slightly skunky aroma. Flavor was simular to Heineken and the like but was lacking... didn't have that slight hop bite that most of these green bottle lagers have.

This stuff is horrible. Tastes similar to Heiniken in the fact that you can't get the skunk taste out of your mouth for days on end. What a pile of horse manure, they must have tried several decades to get a taste this bad. Give me beast light over this any day, at least that beer doesn't have offensive tastes that linger for days on end until you become homicidal and start stomping kittens because you can't believe someone would make such beer. No more beers for me from the Netherlands, THEY ALL SUCK! Nasty!!

This beer single-handedly set back my opinion of European beers for quite some time and has permanently set back my opinion of Dutch Beers. A horrbile skunk swill.

This a bad beer that wants so hard to taste good. Foul smell. Typical light color with horrible fluffy head. Taste like an average beer only more malty. Good beer if you can find it cheaper than Bud Light, which is often the case in Houston

Very typical Pilsener apart from the corny aftertaste, it is not bad though .

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 [canned] golden color, huge head considering this is a pilsner, otherwise, there is nothing special going on, it is not skunky, I´ll give it that, but a bit overwhelmingly crispy

Grainy and rough, the PBR of Rotterdam, I presume. Oakes rating really sums this beer up perfectly... Current sample is lightstruck and offensive. Perfect potion to pour onto the mosquito attempting to crawl up the side of the sink.

just like every other cheap commercial pilsener in europe (croatia atleast). Weak and watery with the slightest hop flavor.

Sampled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2003. Golden with an ok head. Fresh, somwhat hoppy aroma. Thin and harmless international standard lager.
