Tried this at a Going away party for a friend. Some guy brought it and was offering bottles to anyone who wanted one. The claim was that is was better than Heineken. I would say that it is less offensive than Heineken. The aroma isnít as skunky.

This kicks Heinekenís patooty. Itís definitely not the most outstanding product of its kind, but it is respectable. Good enough for a session beer.

Bottle: Bright golden yellow with some fizzyness. Matl and hops in the nose with a medium head. Taste is nicely bitter and reminds me of Heineken but I liked this one a bit more.

Canít smell anything. Decent beer, not worth searching out and buying again. I bought a 6pack 4 weeks ago and now just finished the last one..that should tell you everyting.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A friendís engagement party the other night turned into an impromptu Dutch megalager tasting - four more ratings. Woo hoo! This was the worst of a surprisingly decent lot. Cardboardy malt flavour, metallic bitterness and a bit watery. Not terrible but not really worth revisiting.

Canned, alc. 4.2% (BB 02/2006)
Golden lager color, good white head, some lace. Metallic and rubbery aroma, hints of hops. Malty, light and a bit fruity palate. Gives oily and slightly harsh aftertaste. Corn or maize is maybe added.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Standard lager color, big bubbled whitte head. Metallic aroma. No carbonation at all, this beer feels very watery and thin. Mildly hopped ending, flavor has little note of some fruit and malt. Basic lager without carbonation, not very good.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drinkable. Thin, watery, and almost metallic flavor. It doesnít taste "bad", but it leaves a lot to be desired. Malt notes are very light, and it is slightly skunky. It has a more personality than most american megabrews, but itís nothing to get excited about.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from, of all places, Scotland. From 500ml tin. THis is a nasty, artificial beer, absolutely terrible. Possible the worst crap I have tasted. Its one thing to brew with maize and cheap adjuncts, its another to brew with cheap adjuncts, maize and to add non-fermentible sugars afterwords for nasty cheasy depth. Its like drinking something...oh well, I canít even describe it. Booooo.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Canned, 4.2% ABV) Paleish golden color with medium, soapy, slightly lacy head. A bit stuffy, mildly hoppy and soapy aroma. Grassy-hoppy, buttery and lemony, sweetish flavor with a sugary, slicky finish. Very smooth, but slightly metallic palate with medium, quite soft carbonation. Quite drinkable lager with some personality. Has somewhat the same character as KlŠster Svetlż Special 14%, only in a milder form.
