This poured a crisp golden color with a diminished white head. Lots of tiny bubbles resembling champagne. A skunky aroma and almost metallic. The flavor is skunky with a touch of citrus. What I would expect from the dreadful green bottle. Why do they use these bottles...not that this beer would be good even if it wasn't skunked. The skunk maybe gave it more flavor. I only drank this on a recommendation. Note to self: don't take recommendations from this person again. If I believed in alcohol abuse it would have been a drain pour.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2003 This is one of the few beers where I felt physically ill after drinking it. It's really light and doesn't have much flavor but the aftertaste is what really got to me. I regret drinking this beer.

Slightly skunked aroma, is that standard for dutch lagers? Looks a bit darker than average. Warning, contains corn! Flavour is light with a slightly sour finish. I thought this might be an appropriate drink while watching the Aussies beat Holland in the World Cup but I'm still searching for a good Dutch lager.

Can be skunky, not a bad beer, but needs a little more body. Most Oranjeboom is not fresh, but it would be an ok beer if it were. Less bitter than other nederlander pilsners.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2003 No skunk, much better than Heineken and can be found at Trader Joe’s dirt cheep. This is a watery beer with pleasant flavor and aroma great on a hot day.

Decent pilsener, nothing really special although I liked it more than Heineken cause it is way less skunky!

it is some kind of watery taste combined with a sweet bytaste..In a wrong way. The tastes just dont fit to a clear flavour. Not very well beer
