aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - SEP 22, 2004
Pale gold with a bit more life in the color than the Tuborg I had just prior. The head is fuzzy and dry looking, and lasts for a bit. The flavor is definitely on the adjuncty side, but not offensive. The flavor is soft, a good bit of rice, but not in a foul way. Very low bitterness and very low hop aroma. Very soft on the palate.

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 (668) - 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 wonít buy again.

mongkut4 (132) - Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Pretty undistinguishable. A slight bit ahead of the US macros - but saying youíre better than Bud doesnít say much. At least itís not as skunky as Heineken.

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

Usual pilsner, blah, blah, blah. But hey it was on offer at my supermarket. Thats it!

Average Dutch beer....nice ppearance but taste lets it down a little, okay for the price ( quid for a 660ml bottle )

JorisPPattyn (7908) - 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?
