brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pale yellow pour with a white head. Straw-like aroma with a bit of pale malt, cereal, and sweet grain. Strong garbage aroma with a bit of lemon sourness. Quite metallic on the palate. A bit of apple sweetness, some cereal, straw, and grass. Light malt notes and sour grain. Quite bad.

Oakes (13956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2001
UPDATED: APR 21, 2005 Golden colour with heavy grassy-hoppy aroma...plus hints of graininess. Thick bready malts blend with grassy noble hops on the palate. Moderately bitter. There is a definite huskiness, however and traces of alcohol that slightly undermine what otherwise is a pretty respectable lager.

bhensonb (12959) - 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.

HenrikSoegaard (12047) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2007
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 (11962) - 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.

500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Rich gold, nice persistent tight spongy-to-rocky head, looks good. But the bottle is a pale green, so an automatic -1 for not taking care against getting light-struck. Woh, as I pour thereís a huge limey aroma, this reminds me so much of the Russian Efes, itís almost an exact mimic. Corniness comes out a bit later too, and thatís still from a distance, Iíve not put my nose near it yet. Closer up, itís a bit blander. Taste, again, reminds me of the russian Efes: blandish malts, cornyish if anything, metallic copper/bronze hops. Less limey though, and a bit heavier and fuller, that is sweeter, in the palate. Pretty bad pale coloured lager, but at least it has some character, and isnít a disaster. Finish sweet and corny and bronze again. Ergh, 70ml down, I wonder if I can make it through the whole 500ml...
