2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow with pretty big sticky head. Aroma of sweets and malts. Not much to discuss about the palate, but, anyway, it's drinkable. What else do you want from a Dutch eurolager?

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Super Pale, white and yellow. Very bubbly and a bubbly carbonated white head. Smells a bit of yeast and touch of hops.
Flavor has some hops and a bit of a yeast bite towards the end. Grainy and way too carbonated, adding a sharp taste to it. Thin, watery, light bodied and very unspectacular.

Frothy head, fading away slowly. Graine soapy aroma. Grainy flavorwith just a hint of apple and hops. Some weird caramelly flavor. Watery. This beer is cheap, but still not worth the money paid.

The great thing about this beer is the price. When you need a slab to share with your mates you can always swing this one because it costs as much as the local stuff. It is a soft non-offensive beer in true style. Low hop aroma and not full bodied. Its a lager, sometimes I think all the Belgian beer, give me 12% or give me death types don't appreciate the subtlety of such beers.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
thin metallic hoppy nose, bog standard lager appearance, horrid metallic/chemical flavour, watery, traces of hops??, metallic finish, very thin, the can looks similar to a Heineken cold filtered can and this stuff tastes pretty much as bad.

Plain old lager from Netherlands. Not as skunky as normal lagers from those parts. I was expecting a Heineken, but got Grolsch ultra-light. It's not terrible, but it's fairly plain and flavorless.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice darker gold color. Not a lot of head. It had a slight malt note, but NO noticable hops. I'd drink it if it was around. Nothing great.

I found this beer on a low budget trip to NYC. We were in spanish harlem and found six packs for 5 bucks. I hate to admit this but I just wanted a cheap beer to go with my dinner. Suprisingly this beer tastes just like Heinieken which I don't mind drinking. Pretty good lager with a crisp taste and a pleasant tart afterglow. Have a couple they really don't fill you up. A good thirsty man's beer.
