Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Liquors - 11.2 oz bottle. Pale golden pour, little to no head. As expected, skunky aroma. Flavor has a lot of corniness, some hard water. Thinnish mouthfee with some bubbly spritzinessl. Typical stubby green bottled Dutch beer - drinkable, but not worth writing home about.

The aroma has the very familiar ’euro macro lager smell’ of latex and grass hops with sweet pale malt. The appearance is pale gold with an average head for the style. The flavor is just... like... the aroma. The palate is thin but smooth from carbonation. Overall it’s what I expected and not undrinkable but far from great.

Thin and watery, color is pale gold, which is OK. Thin mouthfeel and almost no aftertaste. I had to check to make sure this was not a non-alcoholic beer! Good if you like golden seltzer water.

Pours a golden yellow. Aromas of malts/hops and maybe a hint of some citrus. Nice sweet malt flavor with a good hop note at the end.

Strikes me as a Heineken knockoff. Pours a yellowish gold in color with a thin white head. Suprisingly non-skunky malt aroma, despite the requisite green bottle. Flavor is sweet, corny malt with very little hop presence. Flat, watery mouthfeel. Not much to recommend this one.
Hard to find any info on this beer, incidentally. The label says "Brewed and bottled in the Netherlands for H-West B.V., Maarssen, Holland." A little internet research turned up that several of Bavaria Brouwerij’s beers are labeled thusly ... kind of a generic Dutch beer thing, I guess.
