slightly skunky aroma, average lager, very ordinary, wish they put as much work into what goes in the bottle, as the bottle itself

An average lager. Neutral aroma. A bit fizzy but ice-cold it is refreshing. Beautiful bottle. Overpriced!!!

Not really very good at all. I always saw the bottles when I worked at a bar and figured that they must be great. It was a great advertisement, but sadly that is all. The beer had an off-flavor and simply put is not good. The amber is quite a bit better, but certainly not great.

A decent Dutch lager, but nothing more. Beautiful bottle.

Skunky every time I have sampled it. Skunky aroma, light gold appearance, and tasting full of skunk--it is however--just barely drinkable. I am bewildered that many others find this beer desirable.

I love this lager. Good tarty flavor. I truly enjoy Holland lagers. A bit expensive but well worth it. Aroma is nice and rich and bitter. This is the beer I buy when my buddy Mike or Hank come up from Florida to fish with me...But only then. (It’s expensive as hell!) Plus I love the cap. Good to have when drinking in the car-you can always seal it up when the police pull you over. This is one of my favorite beers. Good aroma and fantastic flavor. Truly the King of Beers.

Hard to drink, very harsh beer, which is a pity ’cause those bottles are great for homebrew.
