A little better than budweiser, but I may be overcritical because I had high hopes since a friend recommended it.

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.

Not bad dutch beer. Really not bad, a little bitter at times but overall a decent beer.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2003
Instantly dying head. Richer malt than other Dutch lagers (tending toward butterscotch, but wisely holds back) with hints of hop flavor. I find some unexpectedly considerable bitterness too. Really not bad.

UNCCTF (518) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2003
Nice pour, with a very large bone-white head with decent retention. Aroma is very pilsnery; not my favorite. When I tasted this beer, a very metallic flavor came through, and that not-so-pleasant taste stayed around for quite some time. It's not THAT bad - I'm just not a big pilsner fan.
