Gouden Haven ( or,"Golden Harbor") is an authentic Dutch beer, crafted in the Dutch Pilsner tradition in the netherlands. Our name refers to the Golden Age of Holland when during the 17th century, our ports were bustling with ships carrying fine goods from all over the world, and a time when Dutch beer was first exported. Brewed with crystal clear,artesian water, our European styled pilsner offers superior taste of discernable character.

I did not really like this beer. Grainy, bitter, not very fun to drink. Also a little skunky, and I’ve had this more than once so I don’t think it was old.

Bottle. Moderately sweet bready aroma. Gold amber body, small white head. Sweet bready flavor, hint of citrus. Refreshing. Quite nice.

Stanky skunk lager aroma. Crystal clear. Clean lager flavor, some grassy earthiness in there. Its ok for a lager, but your better off with Urquell. Palate is a little rough for a lager, not overcarbed like many lager are.

Pours a very clear dark golden color with a small white head. Aroma is skunky, yeasty, and slightly sweet. The flavor is just about the same. A skunky lager for sure. 12 oz. bottle.

Strong aroma, very similar to Belgian pale lager Stella Artois. Nice after taste, almost fruity, like tea or cider. A little skunk, but anyone who compares this beer to Heineken is a retard, this is much better tasting beer, with a completely different pour. Not even close in comparison. Overall, good drinkable beer.

This is Haineken without the skunk. Flavor sucks though. Acidic indigested vomit. There’s nothing more to it.

I picked this up at the supermarket whilst shopping for cat food and cranberry juice. Is it a coincidence that it has a bit of a cat box odor... as well as the renal health benefits of cranberries? Anywhat - that scent soon left from the golden bodied, fizzy headed lager with sugary, bready malt and a grassy bitterness remaining. The flavor is grainy and sugary with an offsetting hop bitterness. Drinkable.

White froth and lacing. Cereal aroma. Drinkable cereal flavour. Noticeable hops.
