33cl Can from Albert Heijn, as Holland Import Pilsener Bier, other side says Cerveza Holandesa. Clear light golden colour, white head. Foul skunk aroma, grain, sulphur. Flavour is light sweet, some skunk, grain, CO2, cardboard bitter finish. Light bodied. Not worth the 35 cents I paid for it.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can, found in Hong Kong. Golden colour with a gluey, vaguely malty aroma. The body is relatively full for a macro, with some grassy hop, more glue, light grains and subtle alcohol. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it enjoyable, but at least it’s not objectionable.
