You know I really hate green bottles, this one ranks right up there with Rolling Rock, although I prefer it to said above. These should all go in the skunk category.

Very nasty skunk smell with every beer that I have opened. The flavor is also very skunky due to the green bottle I am sure. Not a good beer at all.

When fresh it is what watery flavorless beers should taste like. But it is usually old and skunky. This should be cheep beer but some have been convinced that this rice beer from Holland is special so they pay a premium for it. most outgrow its watery flavor in time especially if they ever actually ever taste a good European pilzener

People can dislike this one all they want, but it was the first beer I ever loved and still enjoy it today. It does have a strong smell and taste, and is pretty bitter, but it's those things that make me like it so much. To me, the bitterness and strong odor are "good" in a way that they're not in other beers that I dislike for the same reasons. Hard to explain. Still a favorite, nevertheless.

Hansen (7592) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2003
Drank it a lot in Holland. Goes for a easy-to-drink beer. Hops in flavor, but not enough. If you get's to Holland, buy something else, they have a lot and a lot of far ahead better beers.

spicedad2 (78) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2003
I'm not a fan of this beer. I think it has an odd smell, as well as an off taste. The flavor of this beer is not pleasant, and tastes like an imported beer which has been sitting for a good deal of time.

Skunky nose and bland, thin body. Watery with too bitter of an aftertaste.

Not a big fan of this beer. Its pricy, and doesn't taste all that good. I cannot put my finger on it, but I just don't like it. Maybe another sampling will help determine the flaws.
