2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light gold color, medium head. A lighter tasting, mild flavored pilsner. Taste is smooth, light malts and hops. Mouthfeel is crisp. Nice balance. Finish is smooth and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hop/tang aroma characteristic of many of these Dutch export lagers. Color also the familiar yellow-gold with ample sudsy head and soapy lace. Hops are disappointingly weak compared to others of this type, and malt adds little flavor but some discernible body. There is a woody quality that IslandHaloe described as cedar...I think that is too generous...Plywood is closer to the mark...At least the effect is subtle. This is not a good representation of this style...hard to recommend even at its very affordable price.

Not very hoppy for a pilsner. Typical mass produced Dutch lager. $3.99 bottled 6pck.

This stuff sucks. If a beer can be described by the following terms: piss clored, skunky, green bottle...it sucks....this beer has it all....it took so long for the head to dissipate that the skunk got to me so bad that I didnt even want to drink it.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
sweet malts followed by a slightly biting hop, a thin finish, some more sweetness of the green apple variety.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Typical run of the mill pilsner. A bit on the light side. Still better than most american equivalents but pretty close.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Almost no smell. Good color and clarity of liquid. Faint and unremarkable inoffensive taste. Weak overall and too thin texture as well.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A typical ’Yellow Fizzy Beer’ look. Mildy sweet with cedar tones. Hops are slightly noticeable in the aftertaste. Superior to domestic macro swills. Needs more of hop pressence.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet malt aroma, winey, mild signs of piney hops. Sweet palate tempered by a little grainy woody dryness. Mild apple flavor. Not a bad lager but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cheaper Heineken Knockoff. I liked this stuff. Ogt a 12 for only $8 at the local beer store and throughly enjoyed it. Something to put in the front of the fridge to ’Decoy’ people from the back where you keep ther good stuff. Little taste, but high carb gives it some zip, good smell, great flavor for the price.
