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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz green bottle. Label reads "Dutch Classics A Dutch style Pilsener beer". Bit of green bottle skunk to start that dissipated rapidly to a light spicey hop aroma. Clear golden orange with medium rocky white head. Sweet grainy malts with some nice nobel hop flavor. Medium body with slightly sweet finish and a bit of residual bitterness. Not a bad pilsner.

Poured into a pilsener glass. Clear light gold color with dozens of bubble columns feeding the white 2 finger head. Aroma is corny adjunct with little to no hops. Taste is of malt husk and adjuncts, but not as vile as most American macros. Quite refreshing and smooth. Great beer for a hot day.
