1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
650 ml bottle into pint glass. Very slight malt nose. Clear golden beer with small film of bubbles. Despite bubbles mouthfeel is flat, not much to report. Paper and cardboard, slight tinny bitterness. Maltose, hop extract, this is industrial machinery beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is the best lager coming from Holland, because it’s flavoursome, refreshing, and a good session beer that everyone likes. It looks good, light gold, has good head retention, it’s very well carbonated (but not too much) and has different flavours in different areas of the mouth, most notably the aforesaid fruity flavours which only occur in the rear corners around the tongue. It’s beautifully priced and is better than the other readily-available Australian and imported premium lagers: Heineken, Beck’s, Nastro Azzurro, and is far better than Cascade and Hahn premium. All in all, an underrated beer on the market and you are sure to have a Hooten good time drinking it!

Not much going on here. Super clean and easy going. More like sparkling water with abv

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a lacklustre, translucent yellow gold. Carbonation is plentiful but the head is ill to stick around. Light hint of boiled vegies and straw atop some fresh mown grass is the aroma. In the mouth it is dry, thin, gassy and marred by a carbonic acid bite that overtook much of the already subdued flavour. Grainy, straw-like flavours mostly come through, zesty, grassy hop back end with low bitterness to finish. Clean enough, just bland as all buggery. Another Euro-lager gem!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
650mL green bottle.
Another one of these imported lagers they’re flogging dirt cheap down here at the moment.
Clear pale golden beer, head doesn’t hold. Not much on the nose or palate but a bit of cereally malt, skunk and perhaps a tad of floral hop more than other cheapies; not that that’s saying much.
I can think alot worse beers at far higher price, but this still isn’t anything special.

What traditional method was this? Flogging a cheap to make beer to the mass aussie market for the summer season? A sudsy/ soapy dishwater of a brew. Cheap and nasty with no carbonation. No doubt some other version of it exists on this site under another name.
