The best thing about this beer was the weird bottle it came it. It was easily the skunkiest beer i have ever had the misfortune of drinking. I think this is the worst beer ever. Holland has failed time and time again in my book; this time was no exception.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: 1" white head recedes quickly. Light lacing. Straw color and clear. Significant carbonation streaming.
Aroma: a mild aroma -- pick up some grassy smell and some faint barley malt.
Mouthfeel: light and watery, finish is crisp dry and refreshing.
Flavor: not complex but pleasant. Flavor has less bite than some other Euro lagers such as Heineken or Grolsch. There is a slight lemon citrus hop bite in the finish but it is very mild. Overall the flavor is light and drinkable with sweet malts and a bit of biscuit flavor along with the grassy element detected in the nose.
Overall: a good if not unusual beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very similar to Heineken except the skunkiness is minimal (probably due to the fact that I had this in from a can.) Light straw-yellow color, minimal head retention. Smells grassy and herbal. Taste is pretty bland and neutral. Nothing special about it except, it is a pretty good buy in the pint cans.

This seems like a light version of Heineken. Not much flavor but easy to swallow.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Poured very light yellow with a bright white head that was quite frothy. Aroma was pretty strong grainy aroma. Taste is a little flat. Somewhat grainy and grassy. Balance between the hops and malt. Not too sweet. Drinkable but not very good--Euro trash only slightly better than US macros.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear yellow with nice white collar. A warm smell. Taste of a fresh soft beer. After pouring quickly turns dead. After a while does not taste fresh anymore.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint on tap in Costa Blanca Spain. Clear yellow with big white head. Fresh lager/pilsener perfect for sunny days. Light medium bitter with small hoppy aroma. As said - nice thirstquencher.
