Easy-drinking lager. Much better than Heineken, but still a little bitter for my lager preference.

Better than you run of the mill American Lager but nothing really special here.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2002
Fresh hops all the way. Very thin body. No malt that may bother you. Not very dry finish. Correctly brewed without evident flaws. My tongue however asks for some more flavour.

Me flatmate Sam got a six pack of this the other day because of the ’free glass’ offer. In all other respects its not so great, almost Heineken-like. Its ok or something. I dunno. Cheers.

Something about this stuff really appeals to me. Maybe it’s that it can be find on sale quite often in this area...

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - NOV 10, 2002
Skunky pale lager with a nice bottle. On par with Heineken but sweeter.

jpknight22 (171) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2002
Everything’s been said here... A pretty big disappointment for such a cool bottle, although its better than your average lager.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2002
Pale gold clear under a large size medium lasting white head. Slightly skunky and very faint stale hops aroma. Depressinly boring medium bitter hops flavour all the way. Thin body and dry bitter finish. I think the amber is significantly better than this.

jedimasternick (96) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2002
If you can find it fresh, it will not be ’skunky’. On tap it is excellent with a slight bitterness, yet satisfying nonetheless. It is brewed in Holland and is arguably the best lager from that country.

PorterPounder (6136) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2002
Good clean hoppy aroma - not skunky - lacy white head - lasts a while. Deep golden color - bit of a crisp bite to it. Overall one of the better easily accessible lagers out there. Good strong finish.
