2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. I don’t know why this one has such low ratings. Even though it was pretty plain, it was clean and inoffensive. A good beer for chugging.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bought in a 16 oz "tallboy"
Typical lager to look at, golden with a massive frothy white head.
The aroma is quite Ok..neutral..mostly hops.
flavour is strane, Its ok to start bready, semi sweet malts, then theres an odd bitterly astringent taste,maybe its the hops..I dont know, strange.
goes well enough on the tongue.
Overall this is not very good..had many better Dutch lagers.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clean but thin taste that is, in my opinion too sweet. Sure is pretty when freshly and properly poured into correct glassware. Just another commercial beer.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2004 slightly grainy, lofty and watery with a small start and finish. Enjoyable when you want a quick drink

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Somewhat disappointing. Okay head retention, little in the flavor or color department. No nose. Well, a slight skunky flavor.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
golden pale lager color, fizzy white head. aroma is surprisingly malty with a bit of metallic hop finish. the flavor is watery but has some malt balance. This isn't as good as I'd hoped but it was still drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Crystal clear, light golden lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Good lacing. The nose is of citrus fruit and white bread. Big, lemony notes in the flavor. Tart and tangy. Well-balanced. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Thin, watery, very carbonated, not much flavor overall. Drinkable when it's ice cold, but tastes worse and worse as it warms.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Blond color. Light hop aroma. Light malt and hop; quite strong bitterness. A common lager.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2004 I can recall that for a brief time in the early 1980's they tried to push this beer onto the American mass market. Apparently they weren't successful.
