3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I was expecting a Heineken-type of dutch import, but it was actually somewhat better than that. Poured the expected light golden color with white head, but unlike others of its type, the head lingered for the entire glass and left very good lacing. Has the typical grainy lager aroma, but the taste is flavorful, and the finish is smooth. This actually was not too bad of a beer.

What a surpising good beer! Beautiful color and continued to bubble for every in the glass, right down to the last drop. Tasted a lot like other Dutch beer that I have had.

Not a bad pilsner, but just like any pilsner it’s borign and not very aromatic.

Poured a pale yellow with a larger head. Not much flavor or nose. Are there any Hops? I think not!

Yikes. Upon opening the bottle a large cork like head pushed it way up looking for all the world like styrofoam. Poured into a glass it was mostly this thick head until it settled down into a pale yellow brew. Almost no nose. Slight hint of hops/ Very bland taste. Not much good.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured 3 of these 12 oz bottles into my giant clear dimpled glass Bavarian Mug. There was still room for the 3 inch pure foam head to crest at the top. A perfect pour if I may idulge myself a bit! Aroma was of VERY faint hops. First taste was of foam and water, Second gulp was all water with barley detectable traces of Malt. Zero aftertaste. This beer definitely looks better than it tastes! There’s nothing memorable here that would cause me to buy it again.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can (500ml). "Brewed with Pride" - great, a gay beer. Poured clear pale yellow with a huge, fluffy, bright white, frankly scary looking head - really nasty toxic-looking scum of lace left behind. Very dry, grainy aroma, catnip-like sour hop bitterness, kind of pee-pee/poo-poo as it warms. The taste is pretty nice - soft, grassy clover-like hops blended with simple sweet grainy malt - nothing special, but clean. Very light bodied, softly carbonated, just a whisper of astringency - tastes okay, hold your nose and it’s acceptable. Mostly.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours urine test yellow with a large white fluffy head. The aroma is lightly grainy malt with traces of corn. The body is slightly above light with fizzy carbonation. The taste is simple and light, creamy smooth malt with a light sweet fake fruit taste. The finish has a light touch of spicy hops. It wasn’t horrible at this point, but once it started warming up a bit it started tasting more and more like sweet corn. I could take no more and had to pour it.

500ml can, 5% a/v
Pours a light gold colour, with a soft white head. The nose consisting of very little. Perhaps grass and grain? The taste is refreshing. A poor mans heinekan as been said. Pretty lowbrow pils, but a good beer nonetheless.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 One of the last dregs of the ’Liquorland’ lot. Amazed I hadn’t tasted it yet, thought I was through with novelty pilsners. Poured a sparkling, yellowy gold with fine carbonation capped off with a loose, rocky white crown that managed to stick around for the length leaving minimal legs. Dry, fresh mowed grass and dusty malt aroma, quite clean but lacking somewhat. Thin, watery, soft palate. Light blend of barnyard grain, souring malt and stale hops. Gently bitter on the finish with a soapy, short swallow. Nothing too offensive, quite straightforward, bland and brain-dead quaffing. So-so. (33cL, BBE 05/07, Liquorland throughout Oz)
