Bottle. It poured a clear sparkling yellow with a light golden hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that diminished almost completely but did have some retention throughout thus producing some fair lacing. The aroma was pretty basic for a lager. The nose was crisp with a mild grain malt, a moderate grassy hop and a somewhat barnyard scented yeast with a light odor of wet cardboard. It tasted very mildly sweet and acidic at first, and then became slightly bitter with a mild crisp hoppy flavor at the end that stayed with you just long enough to put a nice finish on this brew. Mouthfeel was nice and light in body and a bit watery in texture with a nice light creaminess. The carbonation was quite lively, almost fizzy. Overall as I stated before, it is a nice crisp hoppy lager. One I have drank in the past and will again in the future. Very Drinkable!!

Tolerable lager. A bit stronger in flavor than American lagers. Grain and a touch of hop. Not worth further examination and typing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the big brands in Holland. Traditionally popular in the eastern regions where it is made. One of the best industrial pilsners, but industrial.

Demens (262) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 29, 2016
0,45l bottle. Clear golden colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: Fresh grassy, hay with notes of caramel and flour. Taste: Light malty sweet start with a light/medium pleasent bitter mouthfeel. Not bad, better than the average mass produced lagers. Light body with medium carbonation. Medium lasting bitter and dry finish. Okey one.

I drank this beer at several oportunities when I stayed in England. It is an industrial lager, it is not the worst one, drinkable. The body is yellow, regular carbonation, thin and white foam. The taste is malty, some hop, a bit watery, well-balanced.

Milter (716) - Nyborg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2016
En meget ordinær øl fra Grolsch. At den er drukket i Amsterdam på en sensommerdag gør øllen lidt bedre.

Free beer is always good beer and this wasn’t bad as macro lagers go. Grainy and sweet but quite drinkable.
