Very light, almost clear, for some reason my friends really like this. It was bad, but I have had worse.

My second forced down pint at bar with no selection. Had only had it in the bottles before - aroma not nearly as skunky on draught. Still, very pale colour, thin body and no discernable taste to speak of - slightly bitter I suppose, but only in a sour sort of way. Worst beer I have had on tap in a long time – I’d rate in below some national mass market stuff.

Hardly a step up from American macrobrews in taste, but will cost you much more. If you want this taste, stick with Original Coors or Miller High Life - they’re cheaper.

ok, ok its skunky. But it still has great flavor after a few gulps. Absolutely superior to any domestic Lager. The keg can is genious marketing.

i thought it would be alot better, but a skunk must of taken a dump in it while i wasnt looking

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2005 This beer possesses the "skunk" aroma common to lagers of many mid-northern European countries. The clear difference is that that element also dominates the _taste_ of this beer perhaps more than any other. Heineken scores a minor positive for some pronounced hop bitterness. However, with all the choices out there I think I’ll avoid these well-known green glass bottles. Maybe if I visit Holland I’ll give it a try, since I’ve heard that "it’s so much better over there". As it stands, even with the skunk this has been many an American’s first sample of "higher quality beer" and as such even the skunk might taste good in comparison to the typical American swill!

Run of the mill. Grassy and slightly skunky. Better than American macro’s when no other choice is available.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2004 Even out a vending machine, in Holland this beer is indeed a different brew to the insipid muck available elsewhere. The bottled variety is even better. It's a refreshing beer that,even when chilled cold, has a hint of citrus in it. Better lagers, for sure, but not bad at 4 in the morning when the vending machine runs out of coke

shrubber85 (11666) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 Bottle/Can. Fruity, slight floral barley malt aroma. Golden color with large head. Mildly sweet creamy barley malt and mildly bitter hay flavor. A much better beer when you get it fresh in the Netherlands versus the usual light-struck American version. Really a nice light beer in its home country. / 11-20-16 - Mexico City Edition - Mildly skunked but otherwise the same - wonder if they did that on purpose?

This beer tastes skunk from the get go. It's watered down and overpriced. Waste of time.
