UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 Cool corked bottle. Had a weird soapy taste and a skunky aftertaste. I actually took it back to the store thinking it had gone bad. The second batch was no better. Had a few more times. This is not good beer.

Ah, well. Aside from the cool bottle, I wish I'd skipped this one. It's crisp and clear, with a nice white head. The beer has a sort of listerine taste to it that I can't abide.

Hangover (1117) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Bought a mixed 12 pack with this lager and amber ale. I hope the amber ale is better. Pours a light amber color with a head that dissipates to about 1cm in height. Could be refreshing on a hot day... a good beer after mowing the lawn maybe. Has a nice bite to it. Personally I would take a sam adams boston lager over this though. I"m not really a big fan of the style so maybe my rating is biased.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2004 Another nice Dutch lager. Crisp and sparkling, light bitterness. Yes, I like it. (330ml bottle)

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2003
Another skunky lager. Clear golden colour with marginal receding head with some lacing. Toasty flavour with good bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. Would probably enjoy it better on tap or even canned. Bottle (green).

For a commercial beer it is above average, an every day beer. Just right amount of bitterness.

MaBeer1972 (1826) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2003
A light-bodied lager. Quite pale golden color with a good frothy white head. Decent flavor. Somewhat sweet finish.

A pretty average lager in most respects. Better than freakin' Heineken though.

larsniclas (6691) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2003
Bottled. Amber with a nice head. Cereal, almost hensfood-aroma. Ratger malty and bitter flavour.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2003 Bought it for the bottles for home brew, but I was pleasantly suprised. See everyone it's not impossible to do an above average lager.
