UPDATED: JAN 12, 2016 There is nothing to hate, but there is also nothing to love about this beer. It is a typical example of unified mass produced "world" pale lager. I actually like it, not for its taste, but for warm summer evenings. It is very good as a "beer soda", to refresh and to quench thirst. There are no errors or unpleasant things, however, when you start looking for some deepness and taste, you just wont find it. It is just thin malt body with a hint of hidden bitterness. Nothing more, nothing less.

Quite weak beer that is overrated. I can not understand how this beer can be the most sold lager worldwide? They must have succeded with their marketing. However this beer is very light and do not have the thing that i wants in a beer like a malty flavor. But ive had worse beers.

For me probably still the best pilsener in the Netherlands. Fresh and good for thirst. The proud of the dutch!

En elendig og kedelig l. Udseendet er fint nok: farven er lys gyldengul og llen har ogs en fin skumkrone. Men nr det kommer til smag, aroma og mundfylde, s opdager man manglerne.

Bottle at Hvillan 151212. Typical light straw with white head. Some malt but most rawfruit. Easy drank but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A light skunky beer. Would rather drink an American lager. Would not even dream of buying this beer again.

Bottle. Light gold yellow. Light head. Ahh, there's that distinguished skunky like aroma and taste I remember. It's not necessary a bad thing just unique to this beer. Must be the water or something. Light watery some grains. That's about all. Just rating because I'm bored right now and it's about all the gas station had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
