EKGoldings (619) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2003 I buy this stuff for the bottles so I can bottle my homebrew. Nice light hop aroma, mild lager flavors, light malt, light hop bitterness. Lack of pronounced malt flavor of german or Czec lagers suggests rice is used. Not a bad beer, certainly a big step up from most American/Canadian/Oz lagers, but one that I can't fall in love with because it is too light. Tastes like a light version of a German lager (St Pauli Girl, Bitsburger, etc).

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 7, 2003
I've all ways had a soft spot for this beer, I think it's very balanced and clean every goddamn bottle, and it has a great interplay between medium bodied pale lager malt and a grassy, herbal hop character with very quenching bitterness. For a beer that's easy to find just about anywhere in the world, it's one of the best, I*M*H*O.

LordNeuf (136) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Wasn't a strikingly terrific beer. It does have good color and flavor, and it is better than Becks. But I still prefer my Bitburger to it. BUT THE BOTTLES! Oh man home brewer's dream... Self Recycling re-sealable bottles.

bottle- didnt feel like pour it out, i know what it is going to look like. tastes good maybe a little better than heineken. this beer doesnt have very high ratings, but im a big fan of heineken and beers like this. they are a good fall back beer if you dont know what else to buy. a good effort

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2003
A little better than budweiser, but I may be overcritical because I had high hopes since a friend recommended it.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 26, 2003
This beer pours a light amber color out of the regular capped bottle with little head and no lacing on the glass. I really can't smell anything at all in the aroma. There is something, but it is too faint to tell what it is. The flavor is a little malty and there are faint hints of spices, but it is pretty plain. I had one of these long ago with the semi-corked top and remember it being much better - perhaps I just got a skunky one this time around. It's ok, but nothing I would pay an import price for.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 Alcohol in the aroma. Appearance - the beer looks quaffable. Flavour resembles Warsteiner, with a similar bitter taste that lingers on the back of your tongue. Palate is non-sensational. Overall impression is perhaps a little better than Heineken but not better than Warsteiner.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2003
Blond beer with a medium disappearing head. Hoppy aroma with a light bitter taste. A "normal" good, but non sensational lager.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2003
Not bad color, above medium golden, thin head. The flavor was a little skunky but not nearly as much as some other dutch beers I have had. In general, good, and easily drinkable.

A pretty average Dutch beer, fairly drinkable. Not much to report, good session beer.
