the only foreign beer skunkier is grolsch. hard to believe that i used to think this was one of the best beers out there. wow, how i've grown to appreciate beer. this beer does not hold a candle to the great micro-brews of today!

Before I learned too much about beer, this was my favorite beer. It's okay, but there's nothing great about it, really. Not bad either.

standard pissy color with a skunk nose. carbonated water. i can get some cheaper lager with basically the same taste. you can do better for your money.

Skunky aroma frequent if not drunk from tap in Nederland. traditional pils. nice finish. refreshing

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 Very pale straw-coloured beer with a thin head fading to thin lace. Has a sweet malty smell with plenty of great fruity-smelling esters. I don’t know what the skunky smell everyone else is talking about is, I’ve never gotten that impression. I think this is a pretty good straight-forward lager.

Truck stop men's room nose. Initial bite of nickel finishes with clean quarter notes. I've never had one that wasn't skunked. What, do they store these things on the sun in their pretty green bottles. I'd rather drink ODouls.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Smells skunked. Even when fresh it has that bitter smell to it. Very watery and thin. Has a sour/bitter malty taste. Nothing special.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2004
On tap. Clear and pale, not much head retention. Aroma vaguely like a witbier (so THAT'S what it smells like unskunked!). Flavour slightly malty, lacking any hops. Vaguely reminiscent of soda water. Thin (!) body. Avergae, but there's worse.

sdfink (30) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Watery. Lacks body. Skunky aroma. Entirely forgettable and avoidable. Adequately carbonated.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2004
From a can. Light, highly transparent golden yellow. Fairly watery, yet noticable malts. Nothing to get excited about, though and neither are the barely noticable hops. Little aftertaste and body, lots of carbonation. Nothing vile, really, but not good either.
