3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 Almost water, I couldn’t find the premium the can was printed in it. But anyway was cool for a game, just like a Budweisser.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2004 Bottle. Imported from Holland. Why they bother, I don’t know. Think Budweiser with a pinch more hops. Don’t let the low price on an import fool you - it’s no better than many cheap American beers and worse than some. BUY AGAIN?: Never

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
440 ml. can...NZ$12.00/dozen at the moment; who could pass it up?
Pale brown; average fuzzy head. Slightlly grassy but nothing much else in terms of flavour or aroma. The aftertaste left by the the grassiness is, however, quite pleasant, IMHO.
Goes well with a full stomach and a long night of sport-watching.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Well... definitely not a pilsner, at least in taste, I agree with the rating. "Family brewed"... hmph, indeed... but what does that mean? Like that it says "canned in holland", never saw that verb before on labelling. Can’t complain too much about the color... nice orange, upward flowing torrants of bubbles... but the taste... pleasing, but you have to get used to it. A twinge sweet on the afterplate. I can drink this beer, but not entirely satisfying.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold with a bit more life in the color than the Tuborg I had just prior. The head is fuzzy and dry looking, and lasts for a bit. The flavor is definitely on the adjuncty side, but not offensive. The flavor is soft, a good bit of rice, but not in a foul way. Very low bitterness and very low hop aroma. Very soft on the palate.

this is another usual find in amsterdam and other places in holland: typical flavor and your favorite corn, rice, crap adjuncts that we have all learned to love....next!

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Amber beer with small head, small aroma and small flavor. A thin, watery, beverage without character or substance.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden with a decent, white head that lingered for some time. Aroma was all black with a white stripe. Starts malty and finishes with a pronounced bitterness, but not realy a good bitterness. Very crisp and fizzy, if you like that.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours yellow with thin non-lacing head. Nose is floral and acetone. Sweetish malts and mild bitter aftertaste, but also an unpleasant plasticky mouthfeel. Not good and I won’t buy again.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pretty undistinguishable. A slight bit ahead of the US macros - but saying you’re better than Bud doesn’t say much. At least it’s not as skunky as Heineken.
