Extremely skunky smell. Slightly less skunky taste. I donít think Iíll buy it again. I just wanted the bottle for my collection. On a side note, I know a guy who brews some of his own beer and he bought an assload of these bottles so he had something to put his beer in. The only problem with them is the rubber seal. They sometimes break down so he bought a plethora of extra rubber seals. It keeps his beer fresh as hell.

One of the Skunkiest beer ever made. But the bottle kicks ass. Why do all beers in green bottles taste so bad?

tasted very similar to Becks, an overpriced, bitter, flavorless beer.

Typically travelled Netherlands lager in a green bottle. Slightly skunked and just generally not fresh. Very average.

Decent european lager. One of the better megalagers. Slightly skunky aroma dissapates reasonably quickly leaving behind a decently hoppy lager. 10 times as good as heineken.

Tweaking my rating here slightly. Aroma is bready, and slightly skunky, but not unpleasantly so. Gotta give them the big 5 for appearance, itís a good bottle, and a nice looking pilsener in the glass. Clean drinking, bready, a good pizza beer. Solid palate, with a bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2007 Can 500 ml from LCBO
Pours clear, pale gold with medium large laced crown.
Aroma: Grainy front with solid dose of pale sweet malts. Light , refreshing mineral, grassy finish.
Medium light bodied . Watery front slightly supported with green hoppy presence . All to light and thin , especially if you are looking at malt work. Bitter, not the crispest finish. Fairly clan nose, raw and thin below.
