Pours brilliant golden with a shortlived, rocky head and some lacing. Aroma is clean, straw, floral hops. Flavour is papery and body is thin. Slight bitterness in the finish. Thin body, and carbonic bite.

450ml swing-top green bottle pours a clear golden color with a moderate white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is grassy and skunky without much hops presence. Taste is on the sweet side with a finish that’s not quite bitter, but not metallic either. Body is light with low carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. I’m surprised I haven’t rated this one until now. I first tried it underage when it was the decided favorite of a prep school classmate. It was also a favorite of my wife. All I can say is that it is the best macro-lager from the Netherlands. I’ll try it again when someone offers me one, or if there isn’t anything more interesting to order at a restaurant.

marcnow (72) - Pszczyna, POLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Limitowana puszka, Piwo żółte, o małej pianie, szybko spada. Brak śladów na kuflu. Niesamowicie przejrzyste. Fajny trawiasty aromat. Bardzo ożeźwiający. Karbonacja średnio wysoka. Lekko gorzki finisz. Szkoda tej piany, poza tym to bardzo przyjemne. Urzekł mnie aromat, który dość długo się utrzymuje.

joejames (348) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle to English pint glass, pours clear golden, thin white head. No lacing or retention. Aroma of grass and skunk. Taste is a little sweet, grassy bitter, metallic. Light bodied, fizzy large bubble carbonation, thin mouth feel. Finishes dry. It has that European green bottle taste. I’ve had worse.

dnicolaescu (1186) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 13, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL by Efes Russia. Clear golden, white frothy to creamy head. Aroma starts with some nice bread and grass, but after a while all you’re left with is fusel. The taste is sweet, with lots of CO2, fusel and harsh phenolic bitterness. Light lagerish acidity. Pretty crappy.

ContemplateBeer (1718) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Aroma: Bread-like malts that tend towards caramel; the aroma hops are very faint and have a little grassy, earthy character. Appearance: Gold pour with thin wisps of carbonation, the head is white and quickly fades into a faint ring. Flavor: Caramel more apparent up front with some bread seeping in midway through; some grass makes it’s way in toward the finish, which dries out a touch. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: One could do worse in the world of imported Euro macro lagers. Not one I’d seek out for another purchase, but I wouldn’t reject it again if offered from a friend.

jamaty (1156) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Dorada clara, transparente. dos dedos de espuma generosa y duradera. Aroma cereal a cerveza pilsen. En boca mantiene predominio malteado, sabroso. Muy ligera con gas medio y bebible. Final seco y amargo. En general buena lager.
