COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed by Oranjeboom, Rotterdam (Netherlands) until the early 90’s. After the closing of Oranjeboom production was moved to Breda (Netherlands). This brewery was called Verenigde Bierbrouwerijen Breda-Rotterdam at that time and soon to be renamed to Oranjeboom Brouwerij. The Breda Royal brand however always still mentioned United Dutch Breweries (wich translates to Verenigde Brouwerijen). On closing of Oranjeboom Brouwerij, Breda in 2004 by InBev production was moved to both Bremen and Leuven. Until 2008 when Randalls acquired the licence. Some production is also done at Hofbrauhaus Wolters (under the name Getränkeindustrie Altewiek).

aleksander9 (425) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
From can. Cereal aroma. "Round for lager" palate. Aftertaste citrus, cereal, malt and some hop bite. Overall: Nice palate and aftertaste. Nice with no adjuncts.

Sigmund (5116) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2014
Halfpint on tap at The Last Post, Guernsey, as Breda XXX Premium Lager Beer, and 500 ml can at the Fauxquets Valley Campsite, as Breda XXX Royal Lager, ABV 5%. I assume this is the same beer. Golden colour, moderate white head. Standard pilsener aroma, some malts and grain, sweetish grassy notes. Flavour notes keg: The flavour is rather bland, no obvious faults other than the hops being far too moderate. Flavour notes can: Malty and slightly alcoholic flavour, despite only 5% ABV. Moderate but noticeable hops.

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2014
On tap @ Cock & Bull, St. Peter Port. Grainy beginning, easy to drink with lots if grain in the aroma. Sweetish grainy body. The aftertaste is sweetish-grainy, slightly bitterness, fresh, easy to drink but for me way too sweet! The Breda Super Dry is much better - even for a Pale Lager!

Dzhigga (121) - Kirov, RUSSIA - MAY 14, 2014
Can. Golden color with big disappearing head. Very light malt aroma. Light sweet taste with no hops. Typical south beer brewed by Netherlands. Strange.

BalkanMac (37) - Belgrade, - MAY 3, 2014
330ml can in Sanbra Lounge, Accra, Ghana. Clear golden lager with small head retained. Aroma is horrible - alcohol rotting hay, fizzy fermentation. Taste is also off - corn plus weirdness, that horrible saccharine tang one gets from Ghanaian beers, even though this was apparently brewed in Germany.

500 ml can bought at 759 Store in Sheung Shui Centre.

Piss pale dull golden colour; Very thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Very small sticky lacing and active small carbonation; Light pungent smell of malt, with faint floral, dough, bread, and very light lemony grass; Very light sweet taste of thin malt, with faint syrup, very light wet cardboard, dough, light bread, very light lemon and faint grass; Light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is standard Euro macro. Light body with appropriate thin maltyness, sweetness is barely detectable, some wet paper but not a bugger. Quite doughty and bready, plus some faint light hops. Okay… Hoppiness is very light lemon and faint grass in nose and taste. Minimal bitterness for an lightly malty finish; Fairly dry after taste, wery easy to mouth.

Comments: This one may be standard, un-fanciful everyman’s Euro macro, but in all honesty, the smell is okay with bits of neat floral, taste is pretty clean with light malt and thin hops, and as a going down-easy crowd pleaser, it serves it purpose well enough. I have no complain and it’s okay with me. A good companion for watching football matches.

Jimthechap (1650) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 16, 2014
Looks like pale Dutch lager. Smells like pale Dutch lager only paler. Tastes like ambrosia from the Gods... of Dutch lager... only without any ambrosia. Completely unremarkable.

Koskela (289) - Marysville, California, USA - DEC 6, 2013
A slightly malty aroma from this yellow almost clear beer with no head. A bitter medium light bodied club soda with a bit of grainy flavor. Not a horrible lager but coulda been a bit better

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
A golden lager with a thin white head. In aroma, bready malt with mineral notes, light German hops, faint. In mouth, a corny grainy malt with light German hops, very boring. Can from a local Asunción supermarket.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais. pale gold lasting white head. Nasty aroma. Nasty horrible malt and just disgusting flavour. Yuck. Awful. I can’t tell you how bad this beer is. Terrible. Drain pour.
