never tried using the top as a roach clip, but if it works, then bravo to the belgians... otherwise a pretty good, readily available import.

A great beer - especially out of the liter bottles. Plus the ceramic top when taken off works as a great roach clip.

intresting, a lot lighter then i'm used to, but it was better then most lagers i've had. light golden color and flavor, not offensive at all

I'm pleased with this one. Aside from the fact that I couldn't detect any particular aroma, it's bitter enough and it's less watery than other lagers. A good everyday beer.

Bottle. A gold color with a laced white head. Skunky aroma with a skunk and sweet malt flavor. Doesn't taste as good as when you have it in Amsterdam.

This brew had a hoppy aroma to it.It has a bitter aftertaste that lingers.This lager was drinkable, but nothing outstanding in my opinion.I enjoy lagers, but this one just did not cut it for me.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a full head of fine and medium sized white bubbles and left behind a fair lacing. Its body has a transparent light amber brown body and a hoppy aroma. I tasted a mild hoppy flavor that was fairly smooth. This brew was nothing exceptional, just decent.

Smells slightly skunky, and of some malt sweetness color is dull yellow, and very little head. I'm not a personal fan of lagers, and this isnt much of an exception. Finish is bitter, but not hoppy. FOllowed by a rather watered down taste.

It's just a little too bitter for me, so I don't understand why so many of my friends like it.

Tastes like Heiniken but also like Becks. More bitter than other common netherland lagers.
