I love this stuff as an easy drinking lager. Price is right. Taste better than most things fort he price (5.50 per sixer). Very smooth. mmmm

Nice head. Used to drink this on draft in Europe, this canned version is not as good. Not bad, but not the best from Holland by any means.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
White-gold body color with a white frothy head. Smells like the bathroom at your favorite pub. Cottony taste, sticks to your tongue leaving a spoiled water flavor. No distinguishable malt or hop characteristics. Aftertaste tastes something like hydrogen peroxide. Ruling: Coor's ugly cousin from Holland.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light golden in colour, thick fluffy white head. Metallic macrobrew smell with no hops or malt dominant. Almost no taste, but what you do get is that horrible watery macrobrew taste. No hops, no malt and a bit of skunkyness....GREAT! Nothing palatable, just fades away to nothing. Basically a long description of why you shouldn't buy this beer. But if you want to: I bought this 16 ounce can at Trader Joe's in Falls Church, Virginia and split it with good friend JonR888710.

Nice foamy head and good lacing. Color is a golden/brown bronze. I found it in pint cans, a nice bonus, eight twelve ouncers for the price of six. While it isn't the best by a long shot, it is a good value and the taste a decent enough to give it consideration when looking at a wall of beer choices.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled; hoppy aroma, light colour, strange and unpleasant aftertaste

This has a longer, dryer finish than many lagers. Not as good as Grolsch, but if someone bought me one I wouldn’t be too upset.

1.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Smelled nice. Tasted not so nice. Nose was a bit malty-sweet with lemony hints, so I thought maybe I’d get a real beer. Wrong. Wasn’t bad when it hit my tongue, but when I swallowed I pretty much gagged. Horridly skunky, sour, and musty. Just a foul aftertaste. Bleah.

Aroma picks up the hop bitters, which is not especially flattering until tasting this brew--then it seems appropriately complementary. Color is a lovely light gold; head is rocky and holds its own adequately. The flavor showcases a nicely rounded hoppiness, and although there isn’t much maltiness beneath it, this isn’t a feature one expects of the Dutch export style of lager offered here. Aftertaste is medium-dry and quite clean, inviting additional samplings. This is not only a very refreshing beer, very representative of its style, but is a wonderful value as well. It comes in full pint servings at a price more than competitive with its bland American commercial counterparts.
