The company’s best selling lager. Filtered and force-carbonated.

Pale gold clear under a large size medium lasting white head. Slightly skunky and very faint stale hops aroma. Depressinly boring medium bitter hops flavour all the way. Thin body and dry bitter finish. I think the amber is significantly better than this.

If you can find it fresh, it will not be ’skunky’. On tap it is excellent with a slight bitterness, yet satisfying nonetheless. It is brewed in Holland and is arguably the best lager from that country.

Good clean hoppy aroma - not skunky - lacy white head - lasts a while. Deep golden color - bit of a crisp bite to it. Overall one of the better easily accessible lagers out there. Good strong finish.

nice looking bottle. pours golden, with thin but well ratained head. I think I was lucky enough to get a fresh bottle. aroma and flavours are clean and clear. sweet with decent hoppiness. not bad

caesar (5397) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2002
Yellow color. Hoppy smell. Nasty sour, acid metal taste next to the usual pilsener characteristics. Definitely not my favorite pilsener.

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2002
A quite pleasant slightly above average lager.Refreshingly malty taste with a subtle aftertaste. This company does make better beers such as Zomergoud but as is often the way the mass produced, heavily marketed one is the most bland. Great bottle though!

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2002
Not as bad as some other Dutch lagers, this seems to have some nice hops on the odd sip, but is too sweet and industrial (and bloody skunky) to be any good, bordering on suck arse.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 22, 2002
Pale golden color with a medium thick white creamy head. Sour bitter aroma. Slightly sour, bitter well-balanced flavor with a bitter hoppy finish.

After Further Review, I have come to like this as my favorite lager beer. This is probally because it has a nice ’bready’ taste instead of the blandness of most American Lagers. Try it if you want a different taste in a Lager. The Swingtop bottles got me interested in this beer, but the taste keeps me drinking it. :-)
