well. if you have ever had a heineken that was a touch past its drinking date- then you have Holland Import. a simple crisp skunk grass flavour and smell. annoying if you donít to the pound town thing. but decent for the price. less than 5 bucks with tax. and being a rather refined hobo- i likes this. now, pass me my pickle jar, i have to make a deposit around back....

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2015 Pours a golden color. Very clear. About two fingers head. Some lacing retention.

Aroma is hops. Not really picking up any malt. Doesnít smell overly sweet.

Taste is heavy on grassy hops. Itís not overly hoppy, but certainly a pilsener. Bitter, but I look for a little something on the finish to balance it out. Itís a little metallic. It might also be a tiny bit sweet in there too.

Mouthfeel is very crisp and clean. Itís pretty dry. Thereís something about it that makes me want a drink of water after each sip. Iíve never experienced that before when drinking a beer.

Overall, I like it. Itís worth it for the price. I read some of the reviews and itís not like Heineken. When you factor in the price, this is a lot better than Heineken. Itís pretty cheap, and itís pretty good. So I would certainly buy this again.

Drinkable... nice golden color in the glass. Grassy hoppy note with a hint of malty sweetness in the aftertaste. Same grassy hops not in the aroma. Overall, a drinkable brew, nothing exciting but not offensive.

This is basically fake Heineken and I am OK w/ that. It is a pale lager in the same style as a can of carbonated water. There is maybe a little bit of malt or grain but overall this is very mild, medium bodied w/ moderate carbonation. This is fairly well forgettable but it is at least not foul.

From 33cl can. Clear yellow / golden color, small white head. Smell malts and cardboard. A bit watery. Tastes like a weak pilsener: malts and just slightly bitter. Not really good.

Bottle thanks to Graeme. Pours a clear gold with small white head. The aroma is strong skunk and grass. Thin mouth, corn malt, like a heineken clone, decent.

Compared toalltheother pale lagers and pilsener Iíve had in colombia this is pretty good. Crisp and with some actual flavor.

330mL can Another one of these el cheapo lagers popping up in bottleshops down here. Kinda what you expect from a Euro lager - lowly bittered, some skunky cereally malts, good whack of diacetyl, fizzy carbonation, poor head retention. No more deScription is really necessary.

This is clearly an economy version of Heineken. The aroma is very thin and mostly grassy. The appearance is a good yellow, akin to Carlsberg and the carbonation is light. The body is light with nothing remarkable flavor wise and there is a hint of hop on the finish but not enough to qualify this beer as a pilsener. It is clean and free of flaws but unexceptional and forgettable.
