I've sampled both can and bottle. The rip top it's not as much fun as the plop-top bottle, but tastes the same. An easy drinking Premium lager although rather gassey for a long session on it.

A little skunky. Nice bottle. It has the predictable lager taste but does it well.

This slightly skunky and rather plain lager was a staple in my fridge while in the military. I used to buy these huge bottles with the ceramic tops. There's not too much to describe. It's wet, skunky, cardboard-like, carbonated. I think they brewed this only once in 1615 and made enough to last 400 years. In Amsterdam, they have flavored Grolsch... sort of like Fountain Coke that is favored with lemon and cherries etc.. Even worse!!!

Almost done with the grocery store brands... this was the same as most of the others; a boring lager that tasted like all the others... I mean really; what else can i say??? It tastes like warsteiner, and that's all I can say.

Like everyone else, the best feature is the bottle. It's kind of light, a little skunky. It's an okay beer.

The best thing with this beer is the beautiful bottle. If it hadn´t been for the bottle, the brewey had closed in the seventys, and I believe that rumour.

bad aroma and almost no head, but a unique hoppy taste. Good only when cold.

Pours a nice white head but it quickly fades. Nose is skunky with some hops. ZBody is clear and golden. Taste is tarty and slightly sweet. Finish is bitter and quite carbonated. Decent lager if compared to other macros. A great bottle nonetheless.

Hansen (7684) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2003
Funny thing: A hoppy aroma appears in the instant you open the bottle. Besides this, there is nothing special about this beer.

Diablokev (162) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2003
The aroma is sweet, hoppy, floral, and just a bit skunky. The appearance is a clear gold with abundant carbonation, and a nice bubbly head that is very long lasting, and has nice lace. The flavor is smooth and a bit creamy with a nice hoppy aftertaste and just lightly bitter. The beer is smooth, and a pleasure to drink. Overall I really liked this one, very nice beer.
