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).

Bottled. A golden coloured lager with an initial white head, but that disppears rapidly. The aroma is buttery with a little sweet malts and a touch of grassy hop. The taste is bog standard pale lager. Very little of anything to disern it from the water which is its base. If anything a little malt.

Can (brewed 14.07.2005)
Clear golden color, creamy white head. Ashy, grassy hoppy nose, like in some N/A beers. Light lager with plain malty base and woody hopping. Similar to many cheap German supermarket lagers. A bit hoppy aftertaste.

Can found in Singapore 7-11. The Danish royalty are sensible in sending this to Singapore! Bland and average all the way, again with that hallmark tincan aftertaste of a cheaply made pale lager.

Interesting to see that this gets around a bit. Found it in a convenience store in Singapore, costing me a whopping $2.40. Not really worth such an investment though as it is a thin pale version of the many Euro lagers in the market. Quite metallic in its flavour profile and poor mouthfeel. Another rate but that’s it.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2005
Can. Yellow colour with a fast dissapering white head. Weak light apple aroma and a watery light dry taste. Light body and a thin finish.

leaparsons (8606) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2005
Canned. Golden with a small head. Aromas are sweet grain with some hints if lemon fruitiness. Flavours are grain, sweetened lemon followed by metallic hops. Not awful.

imdownthepub (10989) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised. Straw colour but rapidly disapearing head, highly carbonated. A malty aroma initially, but a rapid descent into Eurofiz land. One dimensional malt liquor with some maltose sweetness. Not very good, but not the worst.

Not nice, not bad just middle of the road. Pleasant golden appearance with a lack of any distinctive flavour. The word bland was made for this.
