this is a great lager, and cheap too, £5 for 8 500ml cans, someone rates this as being inferior to budweiser which is totally unfounded unless they are talking about the czech budweiser as oranjeboom far outclasses the american budweiser, only real fault with oranjeboom is it gives me a really bad hangover next morning

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.

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.

Very similar to Heineken, but a little less expensive.

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.

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

Something about these european beers have been really working for me lately. sure there is no smell and I will admit the appearance is not all that appealing but its vaguely sweet and refreshing. nice light malt taste like all european beers. enjoying my imported pint.

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.
