The cheapest of the comman brands in the netherlands, but certainly not the worst. Just a decent sharp priced beer without claiming more. Much better as Oranjeboorm (rouqhly same price) en definately better as Heineken. But it can’t make it next to Grolsch or Dommelsh. Or the real, not mainstreambeers!

Medium gold color and head, with mild hoppy aroma. Slightly sweet up front, with a subdued but pleasant acidity in the middle, and a crisp finish. Nothing fancy, but I didn't mind it, and for an import the price was reasonable. My label said Bavaria Holland Beer and it came in a 12pk.

I liked this one. Yeah, it’s light, but it is a pilsener. Not a lot of malt flavor but has a good hop finish. Light gold in color with a big snow white head. The head lasted and left clearly defined sip lines. It is refreshing. The 8 ounce bottles require two just to score and satisfy.

Can from the LCBO: Poured a deep gold clear lager with a rocky 2 finger cap with fair retention and lacing... Aroma is fairly well pronounced grainy/bready malts with light floral hopping somewhat like clover ( no dutch skunk here like Heineken)... ..fair malt spine. soft mineral mouth feel, smooth rounded malty character.... Fairly 2 dimensional Dutch lager with a good dose of carapils malts up front then a light herbal-lemony effect from attenuated nobel hopping, clean finish, slight drying from a light use of wheat... biscuit after taste ....like a malty, soft pilsner....this is what Grolsch would taste like if they pumped up their malts and were medium bodied. A decent Euro all malt golden lager from a lagge dutch brewer who do their own malting....clean malty taste, minimal sweetnes, subdued lemmony hopping, soft mouth feel...no surprizes or over complexity....very drinkable....I’ll buy more if there is no JR Brickman around.

660ml Bottle. OK I know this beer has been slated but I actually quite liking it. Having just drunk a bottle of Kingfisher, this has much much more about it. Aroma is mild and straw, slightly hoppy. It pours an amber gold with a thin white, but lasting head. It has a grassy taste which passes through the usual lager hops to a slightly carbonated finish. It has a very clean taste. Not bad at all. NB I note other reviewers mention a metallic taste from a can. I can see why they say that as I imagine this would taste that way served from a can - but from a bottle: its not a bad brew

Bagged four of these cans for £3 at the local shop and for the taste they are pretty good. The taste is not that unique but very drinkable. Feels slightly too fizzy. Overall good for the price, not a world beater but I wouldn’t pass one up.

16oz can into a fluted glass. Pours a nice crystal clean hay with a thin head. Taste is cereal, grass, hints of alcohol. Taste is crisp, clean, smooth. Little hop bite, floral, grassy, light graininess and malt sweetness. Pretty nice. Great after a warm day outdoors.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Appearance: Clear golden/light amber with finger thick white head. Aroma: Floral, biscuit, grassy and note of pepper. Taste: Low sweetness, low/medium bitterness and sourness with a slight saltiness. Palate: Prickly carbonation, thick rough texture and light body with a fairly abrupt malty astringent finish. Comments: Very tasty, refreshing, clean and crisp and nice glass lace. Despite all the low ratings for this beer, I did enjoy it and its cheap!
