Green bottle. Why do they still do this?
Emits an extremely skunky smell, more than any other beer I have ever smelled in my life. You cannot detect anything other han this, from smell. Taste is very grassy, little hoppy, and wheaty.
Turned flat real fast. Not good. Stay away

Because of the country of origin, I could not help but compare this, mentally at least, to Heinekin. In that comparison, Oranjeboom comes off as the better beer of the two. It has much the same flavor, but a much better palate and the hops don’t overwhelm the malt.

16 oz can. Not so bad...this is not really worth it to buy from across the Atlantic if in the US. Lots of beers that are about as good but cheaper. Interesting to try, nothing much to speak of.

16 oz can - picked up at Whip-In Liquors in Austin, Tx. Pours a dark golden with a thin and soapy white head. Aroma has a faint wort-like esence to it with a touch of honey. Not half bad.
Flavor is pretty bland however, some dusty notes and a wee bit of honey sweetness. Mouthfeel is slighlty oily and thin. Drinkable.

Keg. Pale straw with fizzed head. Weak sweet musty beer with a carbonated cardboard taste. Little beer character, poor.

Cans. A light and nearly refreshing beer. No great taste, no great looks, just an inoffensive, mildly hoppy, easy drinking beer.

I got this in the USA at Trader Joes. I agree that is a slightly sweet smooth drink. It has a weak flavor but its creamyness s quite nice. Probably the best "Light" beer I have had along with Corona (don't give me that look). Anyhow I would go out of my way not buy it again but would drink it readily if offered one. It is good for something so cheep.

Absolute shocker! Sweet chemical tasting, no head, rough as guts on the palate.

The Rathskeller Wine & Ale Fest:A medium sized white head with small sized bubbles that fully diminished.The body was clear with fizzy carbonation.The hue was yellow and the nose was moderately hoppy and lightly malty.The flavor was sweet and the mouthfeel was smooth and light bodied.
