Light colored lager with a head that dies quickly. Weak and watery with a bit of a kick in the finish.

Rare to find one that isn't skunked. Might be drinkable if they'd put the damn thing in a dark bottle. It's a malty beer when you try to taste through the skunk. Some metallic things happening in there that are rather unpleasant as well.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 Why do people bring me this for parties? Time to stop the BYOB policy!Metallic and Thin. Bad bite and high skunk factor = NOT good.

Not as full-flavoured as I oncce remembered, but it's invigorating taste will delight the cold-filtered-loving set. Spanner.

hershiser2 (1859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Golden yellow, with fluffy head that shrinks quicker than Rick Moranis' kids. Smell is a bit skunky, but somehow, I don't mind it that much. Taste is on the skunky side too, but not overwhelming like some skunky beers can be (see Crapona, err Corona). Nothing special about Mr. Mouthfeel.

Pretty clear stuff; no head...this looked rather like apple juice. It has that weird Dutch flavour/aroma which I can't put my finger on but these are nowhere near as evident as they are in many similiar beers. Basically this has been brewed in order to convince the masses of their being chic. Far from "bad" but also far from "great". Drinkable.

Well, what can I say about this one. Why is this so popular? All I got out of it was a really bad metallic taste and skunk. No good at all.

Crockett (1071) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2004
Tap pour. Clear, and virtually without carbonation. Little to no aroma. At least nothing stands out. It smells somewhat like beer. It also smells somewhat like nothing. Used to fill out the import selection. Hey, people know the name. Very flat in taste. A little bit of late hoppy malt nothingness. Popular. When I close my eyes and really think about what I'm drinking I see (1) a hulking macro brewery import surcharge, and (2) A bunch of Netherlanders rolling around on a pile of money. Keep up the good work.

piscator34 (2284) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 28, 2004
Hoppy... similar to Becks, but with a bit less favour. Light yellow in colour, and not much head. I liked this beer when I was younger, but now I feel like I (along with my taste buds) have grown past this one.

Not too bad. Despite what others say, preferable to a lot of beer you seen at college. I liked the bit of bite. Drink it cold to avoid the skunk.
