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).

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 (10171) - 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.

johndoughty (3966) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2004
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.

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2004
Bottled. Gold, poor white head and low condition. Low malt in the nose, soft and fruity in the mouth and short and sweet in the finish.

Radek Kliber (6406) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 24, 2003
Light aroma, pale lager. Watery up front and the middle but slightly bitter at end. Light beer with out anything that would make its brewer proud.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2002
Completely standard continenal lager. Absolutely nothing to distinguish it from any other mid-range lager. Kicks the shit out of any English lager or lager made under license for the british market i.e. Heineken Cold filtered (pure piss), yet still completely average lager which makes it a bad beer in the general swing of things. They sell it in Aldi need I say more?

neilrichards (191) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2002
Not as bad as the two previous reviews suggest. It has a the distintive taste of European continental lager - which isn’t a put down.

Nagash (207) - Paris, FRANCE - AUG 10, 2002
No taste except something that reminds me cardboard... The cheapest beer i have ever seen. 30 cents for a 50 cl can in france. Nothing interesting.

clear golden colour, fine head, nice lace, medium hoppiness, sweet and oily, heavy, short finish - bad stuff
