hopscotch (9733) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Bottle... Clear, deep golden lager with a large, fizzy, white head. The aroma and flavor pretty much mirror each other... clover honey and lemon. Medium-bodied and oily with fizzy carbonation. Crisp, lightly sweet finish. Better than expected!

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2005
Another not enjoyable Dutch pilsener. Aroma is hard to detect, taste is more bitter than in other Dutch pilseners, but itís truly not a nice, crisp clean hopbitterness. Tastes slightly skunky and old.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2005
This is poor-manís Heineken, a Netherlander lacking much charm, finesse or je ne sais quoi. Itís a bit on the cheap side, and better than many of the Americans in the same price range. Itís more clean than harsh. But is life is too short to drink bad wine, itís too short for Bavaria.

Prugel (13) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2005
light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, no aftertaste itís like water. But gives a headache.

bsawatzky (153) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2005
in the style of heineken and those other european lagers. tastes nothing very distinctive and really leaves a lot to be desired.

georgekillian (344) - Alabama, USA - APR 2, 2005
very heineken like beer, not as good though goes down pretty smooth but still has a very skunked smell and a rough aftertaste. still drinkable

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Pale gold with a thin white head. Pretty frigginí hoppy smell for a lager...which I personally like. Really not bad at all....great after mowing the lawn or just hanging out.

scotty (1064) - SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2005
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.

brewboy (152) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2005
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.
