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 don’t 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....

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.

Benzai (9898) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2011
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 I’ve 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.

AlfredoGarcia (117) - Santiago, CHILE - JUN 28, 2015
500 ml can. A decent smell for a Pilsener. Grass and sweet malts over everything. Clear golden color with white head (dizzy head). Actually tastes like beer, a strong very processed one, but beer in the end. It feels like there are hops and malt there somewhere. Too much inclined to the alcohol for my taste, but decent. Would buy again for it’s price.

dEnk (4193) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2010 Can. Watery golden pour, medium foamy head. Aroma of malts, sugar and syrup, faint hops. Medium bitter flavour, but watery. Not very interesting, but okay for a cheap pilsener.
