Aroma is fragrant, perfumey and malty, with a healthy dose of hops. Beer has a healthy golden color and long-lasting head for its style. Frankly I was expecting a skunky import, but it turns out the flavor is very fresh with lots of malt and a bit of corn. Could use more hops in the flavor. Very full mouthfeel, just slightly syrupy on the finish. Not to say this is an epic beer, but Hollandia is certainly one of the kings of the "Great Minor League" knowns as pale lager.

A cheap version of Heinekken. Not the worst beer I’ve ever had but not great either.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 It was very light, too lager, but it has a nice flavor. Good in a hot day. Light and clear, very nice coloured.

Pailhead (6272) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Bottle: Picked this beauty up at a friends house. Skunk aromas pours out of the bottle as quickly as the liquid into the glass. Light malt barely sneaks by the skunk. I’ve smelled skunkier beers so it can get worse. Therefore I won’t give it a 1 in aroma. Pours a pale yellow with a white head that has some decent retention. Relatively inoffensive taste because it virtually has none except for a light sweet Euro-lager flavor in the finish. Not a lot of carbonation. Very watery. If not the most flavorless beer I’ve ever had, very close.

A mid golden lager that has enough traces of malt and hops to keep you interested. Same brewer as the shite Bavaria Premium/Pilsner. Marginally better than that, but only just. If it was 40degress outside and this is all I had to drink, I’d put up with it. My sample was in Australia, and came in a narrow 330ml green bottle.

Not much better than its American counterparts. Same nasty chemical taste. Yuk.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2005
At $8 a 12 pack, it’s hard to beat this deal. I only drank from the bottle, but the flavor was crisp, slightly bitter. Definitely better when cold.

this must be like the dutch equivalent to bud light, not impressed. bland and mild.

Golden color, middle head. Hoppy bitter aroma. Bitter flat taste. Boring...

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 Tasted from the bottle, this wasn’t as bad as many of the reviews below suggest, and I am not that much of a Euro’ lager fan. Aroma was hoppy, grassy and a little sour, with a little bit of sweet malt. The aroma, though, faded quickly. In a Pils’ glass, the head formed, short and foamy, but died back quickly to leave a little lace down the glass. In the mouth, the beer was slightly gummy and soapy, leafy, with only a tad of sweetness. Light bodied and floral in the back, followed by a short, lightly bitter aftertaste. Minimal malt flavours, though, make this a little one dimensional, and mar what could otherwise be a decent lager.
