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.

Bottle from B&M Team Valley. Pretty average pale lager - not a great deal in terms of taste but refreshing enough on a summer night

Can from Asda, Manchester. Paler golden coloured lager. Bland for the most part with a small carbonation. It’s strength gives it a half-decent mouth feel.

Traditional old world l European lager. Refreshing and light. Not anything overpowering or brash. Has a sweet aftertaste. It was a nice little summer treat

jamaty (1241) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Euro lager convencional como tantas otras. Nada especial. Características habituales de una simple lagar. Bebible. Sin más pretensiones, entra bien y refresca. Aroma escaso, sabor malteado.

Bottle. Picked up from the shelves at ASDA-wish I had left it there. Bronze and clear. Slightly sweet with no other definite flavours. Mind blowingly bland. Only good for drinking on a warm day if there is no water available.

ROSE1962 (85) - POLAND - APR 5, 2015
Barwa jasna, piana biała sztywna, długo się utrzymuje i do końca zostaje. Aromar głównie słodowy. W smaku klasyczny lager. Głównie słodowe, mało goryczki.

Found this at Asda, not bad, nice nose, decent taste, drank a shedload of them and I happily would do again! Oh and very cheap
