3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2007 This beer is quite good, and I mean good. It isn’t the flashiest Pils around but it has good balance towards the malty side, dryish finish and bitterness. Not that hoppy but still a good balanced beer. One of the better beers from holland!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml can. Very pale golden beer with thin white head, fading back quickly to thin lace. Aroma of hay, pale malt. Flavour is slightly sweet, pale malt, grassy hops. Comes across a bit industrial. Sweetish finish.

This not a bad beer at all, it is refreshing and has a very nice bitterness, similiar to heineken,becks,stpauli,etc. Just another average crisp euro brew that does the job when needed

This was nothing special. A bland Pilsner. Nothing more.

I find it hard to believe that Labatt Blue is rated higher than this one. Not a great beer, but...
Best features are a good palate, a pleasant Pils aroma and good hoppy bitterness. This is a decent "set up a cooler on the deck on a hot day" beer.

I had this on in the same sitting as Hollandia and found them quite similar. A nothing special - lightly hopped lager. Cookie, grain, hay, straw, grapefruit, apple, wine. Quite malt sweet. Slightly dry.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours clear, golden fairly carbonated. Aroma is a bit skunky and grassy. Typical watered down, mass produced stuff.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium gold-straw body with a medium, foamy, white head. Decent lager-malt aroma, floral/herbal continnental hops. Faint pancake-dough aroma. The floral aroma almost feels fake, like a dryer sheet. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter flavor. Moderately bitter finish. Decent crisp bitter finish. Less flavor than the aroma indicated, but still that same "fake" floral element. Medium-light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A tinge of the typical pale lager ’honey sweetness’ as it warms.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
nothing special here, just a light colored lager that is however not offensive. I cant say that this beer has any good qualities, but it doesnt have any really bad qualities. I could drink 1 or 30 of these.
