2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow, indistinct aroma. Small, froth white head. Very thin, with some corny, mildly sweet malt. No hopping, and pitifully bland.

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

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Aromas and flavors were pretty skunky. Funny thing is that I shared this 6 pk with some friends. Their reaction was that it tasted "Just Like Heinekin, only smoother...." Imagine that.... I am guessing that that skunky flavor and aroma was intentional to make it apeal to Heiny drinkersl....crazy

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
***review from June 21, 2008***
Another crap beer from the wonderful Beers Around the World mishap. Poured out a crystal clear medium hued solid gold brew, a small white cap, thin ropy lacing and retention just above a skim. The aromas was very dry and quite interesting somehow. Sort of sweet, a large grain content, plastic? and an odd underlying smell. The taste is less than appealing as it is very harsh and very watery with bad hops and a bit of metal. Comes across empty with a weak flavor similar to a light beer. Gassy and foamy too. Slight malt can be found in the aftertaste, which is unsavory. Why bother even finishing this?

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.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Mild flavor, not too distinctive. No after-taste. Hops not totally evident. A good party beer.
