GregClow (3119) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2006
Can from the LCBO. Clear light gold with a small qhite head that recedes quickly. Aroma of grainy malt with some decent honey and herb notes. Light, crisp body. Sweet honeyish malt off the top of the flavour, leading into an interesting lemony middle, and a mild, herbal finish. I got none of the corn notes that a lot of raters seem to have gotten - itís an unexciting beer to be sure, but a fairly clean and adjunct-free one to my nose & palate.

pootzboy (1689) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2006
Can from the LCBO: Poured a deep gold clear lager with a rocky 2 finger cap with fair retention and lacing... Aroma is fairly well pronounced grainy/bready malts with light floral hopping somewhat like clover ( no dutch skunk here like Heineken)... ..fair malt spine. soft mineral mouth feel, smooth rounded malty character.... Fairly 2 dimensional Dutch lager with a good dose of carapils malts up front then a light herbal-lemony effect from attenuated nobel hopping, clean finish, slight drying from a light use of wheat... biscuit after taste ....like a malty, soft pilsner....this is what Grolsch would taste like if they pumped up their malts and were medium bodied. A decent Euro all malt golden lager from a lagge dutch brewer who do their own malting....clean malty taste, minimal sweetnes, subdued lemmony hopping, soft mouth feel...no surprizes or over complexity....very drinkable....Iíll buy more if there is no JR Brickman around.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2006
Nose is corn and other adjuncts, light amber, finger of white foam, bit of lace. Taste is corn, malt, some hops. Grainy, bitter. Poor.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2006
This stuff is pretty foul overall. One of the cheapest lagers found in any corner store in Ireland. Pours a light golden with a fizzy white head turns into nothing. Skunky and metalic hops , slightly herbal and earthy. Flavor is bland and lifeless with some wet cardboard, stale crackery malt, and some more stale hops in the end to skunk it up more and ruin the palate. Gross.

garrison (808) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2006
From a green, eight-ounce bottle purchased on clearance at "liquor Direct" in Covington, Kentucky - This one pours a pale yellow with a full white head of foam and almost no odor. Tastewise... finally, a beer that can outbland Heiniken! Itíll not be a reapest buy!

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Poured from a 12oz bottle yellow with a fluffy white head that left minimal lacing. Aroma was grassy hops and corn. Flavor was hoppy with a touch of sweet malt and a bit of bitterness in the finish. It was a crisp and refreshing brew, best is ice cold on a hot summer day. They just seam to disappear.

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2006
Pours a pale straw coloured hue with good carbonation and a fluffy head. Well hopped corn and malt taste with faint citrus flavour. Not too bad. (500ml can)

Habman (23) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2006
330ml bottle from The Beer Store. Pours pale to golden yellow with a sparkly effervescence. Quite highly carbonated but not sharp on the tongue. Head is white and long lasting with nice lacing. Aroma of bread and hops. Nice malt and hop balance throughout, with as much or more body than most lagers sold in this country. Definitely better than ití fellow Dutch lagers Heineken or Grolsch commonly found here. Priced the same as the common macro lagers ie: Canadian, Blue etc so I think I will grab this one next time instead.
