Very typical of Dutch lager style. High hop aroma, and lightish body. Refreshing. You can’t beat those old swing style earthen-ware caps!

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2003 A bit light, but with a very bitter flavor. I like the aroma, and the bottles are great for those of us who homebrew.

Booooring. Typical lager - but lsightly better than average. Certainly better than American lager.

Zing! Crisp, clean. Goes down WELL. Can have one of the most unruly stanky sewery stenches around, but not detrimental to taste for the most part. Nice dry aftertaste with a bit of a fine malty grain flavor. Everyone I know feels obligated to keep the stopper bottles. It’s a nice gimmick.

Dogbrick (8881) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2002
I wasn’t even lucky enough to get mine in a cool bottle (but I was lucky not to get a skunked one). Typical Lager attributes. Dry flavor with minimal hops.

Slightly bitter & skunky but interesting none the less. Not for the average joe but hey that’s a cool bottle.

A dusty spider web which caught some white grapes and some malt…A skunk once got caught in it I think…And a chicken too…

A tasty lager and a cool bottle. Definately one of my favorite European lagers. A good one to use for introducing your MillBudCoors friends to real beer.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2003 Hoppy , skunky, hey they come in nice bottles.I have drank many of these in days past of my favorite cruise ship brews.
