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).

500ml green bottle. Standard global pale lager. Drinkable. Inoffensive. Boring. This really lacks character. There’s no corn, but it tastes of corn. It has that stewed mushy corn flavour, and that insipid sweetness of tinned corn. Not good, but not that bad either.

Can. Short lived white head. Pale yellow head. Medium malty aroma. Hints of soap. Medium sweet flavour. Much sweeter than ordinary lagers. Fine flavour, but a little boring. (Gårdsplassen Klimavegen 10-22, 29.08.08)

Very, very poor. tastes like grass, a little bit of fruit and water. not even a little bitter, what a real lager should taste like. the grassy taste gave me a stomach ache.

Can thanks to Stithorn. Pours a clear gold with a large white head that goes down quickly. The aroma is mostly malt and some sweet notes, maybe honey. The taste is full of grains, fairly sweet, and a touch of fruit, pear perhaps. Overall, a decent lager, I enjoyed it.

Now this was poor, very poor. Grassy, conrish, full of rubbish sweet malt character, noteably metallic, really off putting and thankfully gareth young was there to drink most of it for me.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 Deep golden color from a can. Thick white head. Medium body with an even dry/sweet flavor balance. Slightly crisp hoppy flavor. OK 2013 Update: no improvement. Minimal hops presence. Dry finish. No off-flavors , clean enough,
