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.

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2008
Clear gold, moderate white head with medium retention. Clean grainy aroma, no skunkiness at all. Clean grainy palate with a mildly bitter finish. Plain, but decent enough.

Typical clear/yellow lager. Slightly skunky/ sweet malt aroma. Pasty flavor, light bodied. Nothing outstanding here.

duffman462 (175) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Pale yellow, indistinct aroma. Small, froth white head. Very thin, with some corny, mildly sweet malt. No hopping, and pitifully bland.

mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Typical clear golden color with minimal head. As soon as the bottle was opened, the skunked aroma was noticeable. The flavor was slightly acidic, and then mostly sweet. Not too bad.

Found this one bottled in St. Charles, Illinois. Your typical Dutch lager: yellow, fizzy, and sweet. Not much going on here.

dwyerpg (5683) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Smells fine, looks alright. Taste is a bit more malty than having a hop bite, but really quite drinkable. Actually should be considered a "premium" lager!

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2007
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a one and a half finger thick white head. Lots of thin lacing. Aroma is bigtime skunk, herbal hops, and light grain. I like it. Flavor is light sweet grain, very light hops, and a touch of diacetyl. Light to medium body. Very nice for a Pale Lager.

12oz bottle courtesy of Degarth. Thanks, bro! Clear straw color with a soapy head. Aromas of malts, sweetness, hops, Cannabis. Fore is highly astringent, watery and thin. Flavor is hops, dishwater, sweetness, spice. Finishes abruptly and unremarkably.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2007
Bottle... Clear yellow lager with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Smells of pale malts, honey and peppery, lemony hops with a hint of skunk (green bottle). Pilsener malt flavor with undertones of honey, lemon peel and snappy, but not bitter, hops. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Finishes lightly sweet and pleasantly crisp.
