UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 Yes! I bought this because I hadn’t had that wonderful skunkyness of a pils in a while, and, man, I wasn’t disappointed. This is the skunkiest nose I’ve ever experienced! The tastes are all mild but consist of butterscotch, light breadiness, and a bit of lemon pepper dryness on the back of the tongue. What can I say? Perhaps, "I hate pilsners."

Nice beer, good flavor from hops. Reminds me of Heineken, which I don’t mind either. Not bad....

Bottle: Skunky malt aroma. Pours a pale yellow without much of a head. Sweet up front. Finishes lightly sweet, lightly bitter, and lightly skunked. Just a light flavored beer all the way around.

I bought a sixer of this a while back and didn’t mind it. Nice golden colour but thin head. Not bad for a clear bottle beer (imported) but I really can’t see myself buying it again, not very interesting.

Got a sixer of this for my birthday after telling someone that I liked a lot of belgian beers. Well, it’s not belgian, but it’s not bad. Has that characteristic continental lager/pilsener taste with a little more bitterness and a little less hop flavor than most import lagers. Standard golden pilsener color with light carbonation and a thin white head. Apparently this one doesn’t travel well, I think there is decent turnover in my local bottle shop, so I think I got a relatively fresh batch. why do breweries package export beer in green bottles instead of brown? THe world may never know.

Mmmmm... another skunked out beer from the Netherlands. What have we poor souls done to deserve this?

Not a bad offering. Much better than the overhyped ghetto-wannabe-Heineken. Good initial flavor and satisfying finish.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 This was once (quite some time ago) my favorite beer. Why ? It’s foreign, it has a plain but maybe enjoyable taste, and everyone else said it was great. Now I know better. And it seems that those people who were "everyone else" know better too. A passable mass produced pils. Rated Premium Pils accidentaly before... copied the review here and deleted the other one.
