0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is notes of urine, sour vegetables, and plastic. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is trace sweetness, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. HWARRRRFFF. Holy cow. The aroma is mind-bendingly disgusting. I’ve had a lot of swill lagers in my years, and I can handle swill, since I know what to expect. But this is the absolute worst aroma I have smelled in a beer in a LONG time. Does not smell like beer at all, not even bad beer. Something obviously went wrong with this batch or bottle, but these just rolled into the state so are presumably pretty darn fresh. No skunkiness, just reeking of green vegetables (green beans mainly) and plastic, with some sharp pee stink in there as well (like asparagus urine! that’s it!). Just absolutely putrid. It makes my stomach hurt just to smell it. The taste is almost as dirty. This is worse than drain pour...it’s like...wanting to do what Dae-su does at the end of Oldboy. Yeeeesh. I haven’t given many 0.5’s, but this one has truly earned it. Congratulations, Hollandia.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours blond with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of grain, sugar. Taste is of grains, herbs, malt, some bitterness, very slight citrus, some unpleasant aftertaste. Palate: Light body. Overall: More bitter than expected. Not "good" but certainly not abyssal.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml can found at a local convenience store. Yay, random tick! Pours a light golden with a thin white cap with somehow good retention and good lacing. Aroma is faintly hoppy and faintly grainy but it is a little more intense than your usual pale lager. Premium indeed! Taste sweet (as in "sugary", not sweet as in "cool") with a nice bitter kick (don’t get too excited, though). Body is light, carbonation prickly. This isn’t the worst pale lager ever.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bière limpide, dorée et où un épais col mousseux se dissipe rapidement sans laisser de dentelle au verre. Des arômes légers et fruités de malt pâle et légèrement herbacés. Légèrement amère et un peu sucrée. Elle est de corps léger, de texture plutôt aqueuse et se termine rapidement sur de légers arômes.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale gold with a white, lacy, fizzy, frothy, lasting head. Soapy. Smells of pale malt, vegetable, corn, and faint grass. Medium oily body with medium carbonation. Tastes of sweet malt, corn and cabbage with a club soda chemically finish that lasts and leaves the mouth dry.

50cl can from a local supermarket at Rhodes. Pours clear, pale golden with a diminishing white head. Aroma of grain and cooked vegetables with hints of hops, sugar and alcohol. Quite sweet with slightly unpleasant flavours and noticable bitterness in the finish. Yet another slightly unpleasant Dutch lager.
