kidmartinek (4884) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Rich, clear golden color with tons of bubbles and a pure white head. Great skunky smell on the pour. Aroma smells like a crisp mild dutch pilsener. Quite delicious. Quick, quite bitter finish. Pretty darn good. Delicious, refreshing, sessionable, and inexpensive. Nice foamy white lace on the glass, half way down.

well. if you have ever had a heineken that was a touch past its drinking date- then you have Holland Import. a simple crisp skunk grass flavour and smell. annoying if you dont to the pound town thing. but decent for the price. less than 5 bucks with tax. and being a rather refined hobo- i likes this. now, pass me my pickle jar, i have to make a deposit around back....

beer_rookie (469) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 31, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2015 Pours a golden color. Very clear. About two fingers head. Some lacing retention.

Aroma is hops. Not really picking up any malt. Doesnt smell overly sweet.

Taste is heavy on grassy hops. Its not overly hoppy, but certainly a pilsener. Bitter, but I look for a little something on the finish to balance it out. Its a little metallic. It might also be a tiny bit sweet in there too.

Mouthfeel is very crisp and clean. Its pretty dry. Theres something about it that makes me want a drink of water after each sip. Ive never experienced that before when drinking a beer.

Overall, I like it. Its worth it for the price. I read some of the reviews and its not like Heineken. When you factor in the price, this is a lot better than Heineken. Its pretty cheap, and its pretty good. So I would certainly buy this again.

Drinkable... nice golden color in the glass. Grassy hoppy note with a hint of malty sweetness in the aftertaste. Same grassy hops not in the aroma. Overall, a drinkable brew, nothing exciting but not offensive.

This is basically fake Heineken and I am OK w/ that. It is a pale lager in the same style as a can of carbonated water. There is maybe a little bit of malt or grain but overall this is very mild, medium bodied w/ moderate carbonation. This is fairly well forgettable but it is at least not foul.

Rex_Remes (158) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - NOV 14, 2016
(Holland Import Premium Beer, 500ml can, Beijing) AROMA: simple beer nose, light yeast, wet paper, toast, touch of floral. APPEARANCE: medium yellow with a bit of amber, clear, good white foam, some clinginess. TASTE: mostly standard lager flavor, some roasted malt comes through, touch of dry timber, bark, tobacco. some metal, unripe fruit. PALATE: watery at first, but some creaminess. ok body with a relatively dry finish with light bitterness. OVERALL: a notch better than your typical mass produced lager.

Benzai (14678) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2011
From 33cl can. Clear yellow / golden color, small white head. Smell malts and cardboard. A bit watery. Tastes like a weak pilsener: malts and just slightly bitter. Not really good.
