nice looking bottle. pours golden, with thin but well ratained head. I think I was lucky enough to get a fresh bottle. aroma and flavours are clean and clear. sweet with decent hoppiness. not bad

Yellow color. Hoppy smell. Nasty sour, acid metal taste next to the usual pilsener characteristics. Definitely not my favorite pilsener.

johndoughty (4229) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2002
A quite pleasant slightly above average lager.Refreshingly malty taste with a subtle aftertaste. This company does make better beers such as Zomergoud but as is often the way the mass produced, heavily marketed one is the most bland. Great bottle though!

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2002
Not as bad as some other Dutch lagers, this seems to have some nice hops on the odd sip, but is too sweet and industrial (and bloody skunky) to be any good, bordering on suck arse.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 22, 2002
Pale golden color with a medium thick white creamy head. Sour bitter aroma. Slightly sour, bitter well-balanced flavor with a bitter hoppy finish.

After Further Review, I have come to like this as my favorite lager beer. This is probally because it has a nice ’bready’ taste instead of the blandness of most American Lagers. Try it if you want a different taste in a Lager. The Swingtop bottles got me interested in this beer, but the taste keeps me drinking it. :-)

If you get a fresh non skunky one, not bad. Much better than Heiny and most Canadian commercial beers aye.

Mediocre euro lager with malty undertones.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2002
The only thing special about this lager is the cool swing cap. The beer is mediocre, but it’s a step up (albiet, a tiny one) from Heineken. Worth buying just to add the bottle to the collection.
