Not bad if you drink it ice cold & fast. They have only been brewing it since 1615 maybe not quite enough time to get it right.

Not too bad, but not on the top of my list of imports. Has a bit of a bitter taste and a skunky smell that detracts from the overall enjoyment. Often takes a little prodding to "get into". Plenty of better lagers out there than this.

One of the better international lagers, a bit more bitter than most. The bottle is great for homebrew!

3fourths (8982) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 [rerate needed] From the bottle, tastes very sour and skunky, too watery as well. I will not buy this again.

TheTsunami (162) - Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2003
Draft. Not nearly as skunky in aroma of flavor as I remember the bottled variety being. But the opportunity for it was evident. Might have again from the tap. Will never drink again from the bottle.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2003
The aroma is fairly skunky. Pale color. Flavor isnt as skunky as the aroma. In the same league as Heineken and Becks for sure. Drinkable but I probably wont buy it again.

Donatas (188) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JAN 11, 2003
Bad taste, bad appearance (pale yellow color). Very bitter, high carbonated. Awful lager.

Medium head, smooth in the mouth. For a supermarket beer, its pretty good.

Tastes like a low quality Heineken. Wouldnt buy again.

Nice tasting for a import larger. Yellow color, big initial head, light carbonation in the beer. Smells a little of hops. Tastes a little plasticy. Would buy over most lagers, probably better on tap.
