Bottled; hoppy aroma, light colour, strange and unpleasant aftertaste....... leaparsons (10859) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2002
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 (1942) - 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. SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2002

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.

Watery, thin, slight bitterness, not much malt. The aftertaste is really unpleasant. joet (2675) - 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. Puss Gutt99 (206) - Oldtown, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2001
