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 mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2003
I got this in the USA at Trader Joes. I agree that is a slightly sweet smooth drink. It has a weak flavor but its creamyness s quite nice. Probably the best "Light" beer I have had along with Corona (don't give me that look). Anyhow I would go out of my way not buy it again but would drink it readily if offered one. It is good for something so cheep. Parrothead (294) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Because of the country of origin, I could not help but compare this, mentally at least, to Heinekin. In that comparison, Oranjeboom comes off as the better beer of the two. It has much the same flavor, but a much better palate and the hops don’t overwhelm the malt. castellano42 (11) - - SEP 15, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 16.9 oz can from Trader Joes. I read the reviews before tried it and was pleasantly surprised once I did. This was a nice refreshing Lager, with a touch of sweetness and a nice little bitter note at the end. boto (2261) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 3, 2001
Very similar to Heineken, but a little less expensive.......................

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. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2004
Cans. A light and nearly refreshing beer. No great taste, no great looks, just an inoffensive, mildly hoppy, easy drinking beer.
