This has a longer, dryer finish than many lagers. Not as good as Grolsch, but if someone bought me one I wouldn’t be too upset. MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2002
Smelled nice. Tasted not so nice. Nose was a bit malty-sweet with lemony hints, so I thought maybe I’d get a real beer. Wrong. Wasn’t bad when it hit my tongue, but when I swallowed I pretty much gagged. Horridly skunky, sour, and musty. Just a foul aftertaste. Bleah.

Aroma picks up the hop bitters, which is not especially flattering until tasting this brew--then it seems appropriately complementary. Color is a lovely light gold; head is rocky and holds its own adequately. The flavor showcases a nicely rounded hoppiness, and although there isn’t much maltiness beneath it, this isn’t a feature one expects of the Dutch export style of lager offered here. Aftertaste is medium-dry and quite clean, inviting additional samplings. This is not only a very refreshing beer, very representative of its style, but is a wonderful value as well. It comes in full pint servings at a price more than competitive with its bland American commercial counterparts. Dragonblaze99 (353) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2002
Watery, thin, slight bitterness, not much malt. The aftertaste is really unpleasant. joet (2607) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2001
Thin, bit of skunk (don’t blame light). I’m finding that given a choice between this and Budweiser I was hesitant. Now that someone brought Corona and put it in the fridge there’s no choice -- I grab the Corona.

A nice little lager.

this is a great lager, and cheap too, £5 for 8 500ml cans, someone rates this as being inferior to budweiser which is totally unfounded unless they are talking about the czech budweiser as oranjeboom far outclasses the american budweiser, only real fault with oranjeboom is it gives me a really bad hangover next morning boto (2211) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 3, 2001
Very similar to Heineken, but a little less expensive.
