Good looking lager,pale gold with a fine white head. A strange aroma dominates, hoppy??? perhaps!!! Light in flavour and on the palate. A refreshing style of lager, I donít think itís meant to be taken too seriously. Well chilled, this is OK stuff, better than another mass produced "lager" from Glasgow.

Pigs Piss comes to mind. Sickly sweet sugars overburdon any chance of malt or hops coming through. Sampled this one in Australia, marketed as "Bavaria Premium". Still the same shite lolly water under a slightly different name.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2007 Bottled. A light golden beer with an orange tint. The aroma is quite mellow with some hops and no expected grassiness. The taste is also clean and mellow with a passable hoppiness. Quite pleasant and certainly more enjoyable for me than most beers of this style.

I really like the way this beer looks, light golden color, lively carbonation, huge creamy (maltose induced) head. Unfortunately, it stinks... that is, the aroma is unfortunate. (Whatís Dutch for "skunk?") This is very soft in the mouth and actually doesnít taste too bad in a mild, malty way. But thereís little neligible hopping, so this certainly isnít a pils... at least, a good one. Watery clean finish.

Even though a lot of people here want to say it has no backbone I detected hops taste to mine. The problem was that it seems somewhat astringent. It does have an unusual sort of a skunky smell and I am not sure if it is truly skunky or what. The only interesting thing about this beer is the hint of citrus in the aftertaste. I guess you could say this one has more in common with Mexican beer than it does with most European beer.

Clear, gold . light head. Grassy hopps aroma with litth in the way of backbone or hopps. Why bother.

Itís a pilsener to drink if you are not able to drink any better beer. Smells not good, but tastes a little bit better. Sticky aftertaste.

I kind of wanted to hate this beer. But I really canít. Its kind of bland and average, but not bad. A little better than Heineken actually, which is sort of the benchmark for Hollish macros

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 Yes! I bought this because I hadnít had that wonderful skunkyness of a pils in a while, and, man, I wasnít disappointed. This is the skunkiest nose Iíve ever experienced! The tastes are all mild but consist of butterscotch, light breadiness, and a bit of lemon pepper dryness on the back of the tongue. What can I say? Perhaps, "I hate pilsners."

Nice beer, good flavor from hops. Reminds me of Heineken, which I donít mind either. Not bad....
