1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 12 oz bottle. Pours a transparent yellow gold with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma was light and sweet. Flavor was like very watered down Heineken. This is a weak beer. Mouthfeel was thin and watery, with a bit of a lingering pasty after film. Finish is weak with a disturbing sweet aftertaste. Not recommended, I am very pissed off that I bought a whole sixer. Re-rate note(9-13-07): having finished the whole six pack I am lowering my score; This beer really stands out as pathetic, there is a consistent metallic saccharine aftertaste in every bottle that I detest. Only the village idiot will buy this twice.

i guess there’s something cool about reviewing a retired beer. it says dutch classic but they’re retiring it? well, it probably should be, it’s rubbish. i would expect more from the dutch...well, let me take that back, they also gave us heineken.

a transparent gold with a quickly dissipating head. syrupy with a medium body and lively in the mouth. small citrus aroma has a mellow caramel malt with some roasted grain. light citrus honey actually not bad just not anything that special

Looked interesting on the shelf. Pours a pale straw color with a fading white head. Aroma of caramel, corn and cat. Some cat finds its way into the taste as well - an interesting counterpoint to the barnyard funk. Fix the problems and this might be an interesting beer, but as it is? Drainpour.

Nice golden color w/ a shallow, loosly spatered beachball style froth. Froth dies quickly and leaves a small trace of brewers lace. Aroma of sharp skunk and hay. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Balanced and bittered nicely but nothing else. Plain and simply put, next ?

Lovely. A very, very pale yellow with a head that vanishes in a flash. It’s got a green bottle skunkiness when first poured. That fades and leaves a light bread and corn aroma. Thin and mildly oily in the mouth. It’s got the flavor of a light BMC without the carbonation. Lovely.

Regular old piss yellow color with a fizzy dissipating head. Normal aroma of adjuncts with corn and malting. Flavor is bland and a typical lager of European macro style. what else can i say?

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle... "Eastern You’re A Peein’ Lager & Ale Night"... Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is toffee and orange blossom honey with lesser floral and herbal notes. The malty flavor leans on the sweet side of balance. Notes of toffee and honey with minimal herbal, earthy bitterness. Medium-bodied and prickly. Mid-length, bitter-sweet finish. Better than expected, but I wasn’t expecting much.

Smells and looks awful. The tastie is also far from pleasant. A little hops and not much else. I’d prefer the Old English HG800 I had just before this.
