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. Iíve 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! thatís 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...itís like...wanting to do what Dae-su does at the end of Oldboy. Yeeeesh. I havenít given many 0.5ís, 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. Itís strength gives it a half-decent mouth feel.
