bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 26, 2007
As Bavaria Holland Beer. Light grassy aroma. Gold color with decent white head. Starts with malt, thin to medium bodied, as carbonation leaves, the malt dominates, and then some hop arrives. However, the sweetness seems a bit much for the amount of hop. Drinkable, but there are many better pilseners. Chacon son gout.

rlgk (11425) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2003
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2003) Golden, with not much of a head. Aroma is hoppy with some malt. Not much taste, rather mild and a little boring.

Christian (11274) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2011
Golden with a lasting white head. Grainy and grassy aroma. Sweetish grainy flavour with a faint bitterness

thewolf (11233) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2009
Bottle. [thank you Skortila/caesar]
Pours clear golden with a medium, fizzy, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is grainy sweet, some lemony notes and green apples. Medium carbonation, rather thin and watery. Still, it maintains a fair dryness. Flavour, though, is mostly non-existent. Sweet and malty with a slight underlying grassy hops base. Still, it’s better than it’s 2.19 suggests.

gunnfryd (11191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 11, 2009
Can. Pale golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, grain. Flavour is sweet, malt, hay, fruit, grain. Boring beer.

Koelschtrinker (11038) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Sehr mild malzig-getreidig startet das Bier, und es bleibt auch erst einmal so. Zum mittelteil hin leicht hopfig und wässrig, bitterer Nachgeschmack. Sehr nichtssagend. Test vom 7.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,6,7,6,5,6 - 6,30

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 Bottle. Frothy white good mostly lasting head. Pale yellow colour. Week bready aroma. Light sweet and bitter flavor. Not very pleasent. Short light bitter finish. Watery palate. Maybe one of the worst dutch lagers?

imdownthepub (10626) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Tin, 500ml from One Stop, Cheltenham. Pale yellow gold with fizzed head. This is the 5% version. Sweet vanilla malt, thin with a chemical, chalky type note. Little substance other than malty sweetness. Dodgy.
Earlier Rating: 12/25/2007 Total Score: 1.6
Bottled, 330ml, pasteurised. Tesco Premium Lager. Gold with white head. Thin malty lager, quite herd on the palate but then moving to a sugary sweetness. not good at all.
