very nice light flavored lager.At its best after an hour in the freezer on a hot afternoon. The light flavor works really well with hot spicy Indian food or as a nice quiet drink when just relaxing

Oranjeboom is a wonderful, economically sound brew from the Netherlands. While the name might imply more of an impact, the orange flavor is only an afterthought at best.
As a lager, it is fairly accessible, but hoppy enough for educated drinkers to find interesting.
The most pleasing aspect of this brew is its aroma, which is bold and does carry most of the orange overtones. The brew itself is fairly thin and slightly underwhelming in comparison to its fellow country brews. But by itself, this brew shines.
Goes great with seafood, or most anything steamed.

A pleasant, somewhat light-bodied Dutch lager
without any frills. Yes, I know that's not much to say, but Oranjeboom is quite drinkable and beats the hell out of Bud!

Can. Golden and clear with a small head.Low carbonation and slightly sweet.Left lots of lacing. An above average Euro lager but nothing exciting.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 NOt bad, but It is not my type, like Modelo. A little bitter but lager. I do not know why they call it a Pilsner.

This is a decent beer which is clearly light and unexceptional but has some good flavour. It is gold with a fairly bid white head that steadily dissipates and only leaves a very weka hint of lace. The aroma is a nice basic pale lager aroma, mostly light grain with hints of citrus, flowers, pine and sulphur. The taste is pleasant light grain mostly with light sweetness and a decent light bitterness with a lingering lightly bitter finish. There is little complexity in taste and the hop element is barely noticeable in taste beyond the bitterness, but it at least has enough hop to give it a lightly, but predominantly hoppy-bitter quality. it goes well with food and is easy and pleasant to drink, while still being a little satisfying.

Can. Clear golden body under a frothy white head. Interesting hop nose of orange flesh and acidic silage. Solid flavor with a clean pils malt base and no negative adjuncty flavors with crisp noble hopping at the end. This is a solid continental lager.
