This is a nice beer. Not good to look at, but that's why you leave it in the bottle. Has a crisp fullfilling taste and a nice finish.

Not terrible. A very drinkable beer, but very similar to Hollande 1620 and somewhat similar to Heineken. Pretty good, but not my favorite, especially at that price.

This is good. I like it. I remember first trying it and expecting a mediocre beer and i got a fairly high quality one instead.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow beer with loose fizzy head. Has what I call that “funky Heineken” smell. Flavor is slightly musty and veggie-like. Drinkable when well-chilled, less than drinkable at cellar temperature. Death to lagers in green bottles. Why am I a sucker for that swing-top bottle?

For all of you homeberwers that have been living in a cave, these bottles are the best for bottling. That aside, this was the first imported brew that I ever drank. I loved it then and I think it's still pretty good now. Skunky at first followed by some intense carbonation. Much more fun to drink out of the fliptops.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I believe this was the first beer I ever drank when I was 13 years old. I remember thinking that drinking a whole beer was difficult to do, and I think it was the smaller bottle version. Aroma is hard to identify..perhaps like a rubber tire? Large white head, mostly disappating. Deep gold in color with swirling carbonation. Good lace. Crisp with a bite. Solid lager flavor. Very drinkable. Love the green swingtop bottle. Good for a lager but haven't had many lagers that have blown me away and this is no exception.

Oderifous skunkiness! Nice big head diminishes rather quickly. Slight lacing. Pale yellow color. Oily mouthfeel, kind of like drinking olive oil. It's alright, I guess.
