A lager beer with a 400 year old tradition. Dutch history records our brewery as early as 1620, in the feudal provonce of Ultrecht. When you next come to our pretty market town of Maarssen, please stop to taste this fine, rich beer at its birthplace, but until then, please enjoy a bottle of my favorite brew, Hollande 1620.

Eh.. Nothing special. Heineken like. Green bottle. More or less same green bottle taste. Only bought 1 to try. Probably won't buy more. You could do worse however...

12oz bottle - Boy, you could really do much worse than this but Big Lots! practically gives this stuff way, its a good BBQ beer when the fire just wants to be quenched. Aroma is mildly skunky, decent yeasty-bread aroma mixed with apple juice. Light grass (really light), just a touch of sweet corn. Pretty unoffensive actually. Drinkable.

Ok i bought atleast a 36 pack of theses they were on sale at foodsco aka kroger idk how much a 6pack but cheap honestly i like it better than Heineken cant believe it was that cheap has a after bitter taste but for the price allot better than bud wiser/light and low end beers.. like most said has a grassy smell to it not bad at all. I would give this beer a 4.5 for the price and taste.

500ml can pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that settles quickly leaving a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with some cereal grains. Taste is malty sweet with a grassy hop bitterness with a light skunkiness. Light bodied with some mild carbonation. A typical macro style lager, but one of the better ones.

11.2 fl oz bottle. Totally clear pale yellow color, minimal head. Mildly skunky, yeasty aroma. A bit over carbonated. Light sour aftertaste. However, better than Heineken IMO, and cant argue with the $4/6 price.

This beer is a typical beer from Holland. It doesnt taste real spectacular. Use your money to buy a lottery ticket when you come across this beer.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Purchased at a grocery store in eastern Tennessee because I had never seen it before. Pours a clear pale yellow color with fizzy white head. Skunky pungent saaz hop aroma with corny sweetness. Flavor sweet base, bit of a dry finish, grassy notes. Overall, decent typical euro lager, but nothing really unique.

A crisp pils aroma. The flavor is also dry and crisp but has some butter notes up front that really drag it down.

WVHouseofBeer (1058) - West Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Basically identical to Heineken, maybe a little better; its definitely better than the typical American macro lager. Very slight grassy/hay aroma and flavor. Nothing special and very forgettable.

Pours a clean golden color with a cream-white head. Aroma is light and crisp with no discernible singularities. Flavor is crisp clean and light. Certainly not bad, just not much there. This is probably what bud light wants to taste light. Not great, but easy-drinking.

Clear, yellow, good head. A lot of skunk which is a shame - theres plenty of malt flavor back there that might otherwise make this one an almost decent beer. Even the finish is nicely bitter. But oh - the skunk...
