Bland watery beer that made no favorable impression whatsoever. Next!

Very average. I certainly wouldn’t be ashamed to ice down a cooler-full for a BBQ. This is a perfectly servicable beer, especially with food, at a good price point ($5/6-16 oz.) I actually rather enjoyed the aroma (from the can, not from the green bottle,) which is slightly malty and alcoholic. Flavor is somewhat malty, but otherwise close to American Standard. Palate clings a little. Deep green can, not particularly attractive.

Well it certainly is light, but you still get a nice taste of hops with every swallow. Well worth the $4.50 I paid for a sixer of 16oz cans.

Tried this one next to a Hollandia. I found this one to have less of a flowery aroma, and more of a ’cracker-like’ malt flavor. A little more bitterness too... less aroma. Has a relatively dry finish. Crisply carbonated. Like the Hollandia, it was cheap (about $4.50 a 6-pack). As I said with the Hollandia, if you’re in search of a ’light-tasting’ beer, it’s well worth the money. Otherwise, it didn’t have enough personality to keep my attention. An inexpensive, imported lawnmower beer at best.

Has that Heineken aroma of slight skunkiness along with a very similar taste. The alcohol might peek through just a tad. Doesn’t have much of that characteristic pilsener bite.

Nice beer, a little weak on flavor. Reminiscent of Heineken.

A nice smelling Pilsener with a light clean taste. Not the best Pilsener out there, but very far from the worst.

Light bodied, boring, without character. Very industrial.
