2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours pale gold with a medium head. Aroma is sweet and slightly adjunct-laden, mils floral noble hops make a brief appearance. Flavor is sweet and malty at the start, the middle falls flat with a watery and mild section, slowly interrupted by hop pepper, and a light, slightly grassy finish. Not horrid, but nothing to write home about.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
16 ounce can from Trader Joe’s Glen Allen, VA. Pours a crystal clear pale gold color with a large fizzy white head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of grass, corn and hay. Taste is watery, grainy, some grass and slightly metallic. One of the most watery and tasteless beers I’ve ever had. Thin. Watery. Watery and thin. Good thing too as I’m thirsty. Glad it was only a buck.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear light yellow with a large sudsy white head. The aroma is very light with pale malt, corn, cracker and light, if any, hop presence. The body is light, crisp and biting with frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with the aroma traits, but is a bit spicier with a hint more of hops. Okay beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
16oz can. Filtered thin yellow-orange color with a pretty massive white head. Classic Euro-Pils aroma, a little dough and brewhouse in the aroma. Some soapy crispness up front leads to a sweet malty body. Light bodied and pretty bland, still a small notch above your BMC swill.

Big can. Yellow. Sweet and very malty nose. Flavor is the same. Very sweet. Caramel malt and some light hops. Bad.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
16 oz. can. Pours a white head, over a yellow (SRM 4) body....nose of light biscuit, bit of hop spice.....taste of slightly sweet malts, with a light bitter finish....mouth feel light and watery, carbonation light. Done as a tasting of this beer, 3 Horses and Oranjeboom. This was the weakest. It has little of the characteristics of a Pilsener, malts are wrong, hops are wrong. It is sort of yellow, fizzy slightly flavored water.

Foamy - and iron? Wait what? Oh crap this is bad! No No No No, this is going down the drain. -insert witty comment about how this crap is made by the people that bought Budweiser while I go pour this out. It is like iron nails were rusting in the can.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint can. Pours clear gold with a 3 finger snow white head. The nose is grassy hops, malt and lemon zest. The taste is grass, malt and a crisp light hop finish. Medium bodied. This is probably the Milwaukee’s Best of Holland, but it’s not that bad on a hot day.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
drank a lot of this in years past it has a clean taste that is mostly mildly sweet with a dank woody flavor or that of cork typical for many other beers from the region. i liked it for it’s pricepoint when i had far less experience tasting. i also used to enjoy the crisp small carbonation which i found refreshing and attributed to good body.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a one pint can. Pours pale gold with a two-finger white head, some lacings. Very aromatic for the style. Aroma is yeasty, some floral hops. Taste is sweet malts with a mildly bitter euro hop flavor. Somewhat astringent. Medium dry finish. Lightly bitter. A winner in the ’’bargain bin pilsner’’ category. I paid 99 cents US for this pint and must say I enjoyed more than I expected.
