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!

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Amber beer with small head, small aroma and small flavor. A thin, watery, beverage without character or substance.

RedEft (154) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - SEP 12, 2004
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.

jgentgesdo (667) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 25, 2004
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.

mongkut4 (132) - Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2004
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.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 11, 2004
One of the worst pale lagers I’ve ever tried. Gassy, flat and acidic. Was it a beer?

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2004
Usual pilsner, blah, blah, blah. But hey it was on offer at my supermarket. Thats it!

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2004
Average Dutch beer....nice ppearance but taste lets it down a little, okay for the price ( quid for a 660ml bottle )

JorisPPattyn (7889) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2004
(my bottle - identical label as illustrated - claims 5% ABV) Clear gold; thick and fluffy yellow head, fed by heavy carbonation, but not very stable. Very grainy nose, and the same time sulphuric - and meant is H˛S! This is "skunked", as you Americans call it, big time. Boring, light-sweet pilsener, some maize/corn. And if "hops can easily be distinguished" it must be by their utter absence. Watery texture, with a nearly slimy mouthfeel. Once gotten over the rotten eggs nose, this is "easily drinkable"? If you forget your retronasal perception, perhaps - with a good thorough cold?

Yellow with too much carbonation...smells skunky...bitter finish...definately grassy...
