Pale yellow color, small white head. Harsh malty, buttery aroma. Sweetish malty and buttery flavor with hints of hops. Harsh finish. A bit pils like ordinary brew.

A bit of an identity crisis on the label! The neck label says "premium pilsner", but the body label says "premium lager". Hmmm... Anyhow, I liked it from the beginning. Pours a clear gold with a generous foamy head that broke into flotsam and laced its way to the bottom. Aroma of skunky hops predominates (classic for all the dutch beers Ive tried) with a background bicarbonate or detergent smell when the head was still high. Much better palate than Hollandia or Bavaria (two other dutch lager imports Ive tried recently), with more sweet malt to back the bitter hops and a nice clean finish. I liked this one.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 NOt bad, but It is not my type, like Modelo. A little bitter but lager. I do not know why they call it a Pilsner.

Frankly, this surpised me. I figured that this stuff would have been totally gross, but it actually has some redeeming qualities. Slightly sour aromas with some grassy hops. Light malt flavors with more grassy hops. Finish is a little vegetal, though.

ALLOVATE (2981) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2005
Tasted from the bottle and labelled Oranjeboom Premium Lager, as to differentiate it from ever being recognised as any sort of Pilsner. Poured into a Pilsner glass, an inch of white foam rose above a typical clear gold body. Appearance was as good as this got, as the head lasted the distance and webbed white rings down the glass. Very dry and bitter, leafy hop aroma with a little citrus and some egg yolk skunkiness. Ultra light in the mouth, a lot cleaner than the aroma, with a little sweet malt upfront, grainy mid palate and leafy hop sides, before finishing with a short, sweet cardboardy swallow. Very light on and crisp, but overall it falls into the ranks of the other 15,000 beers to never try again. Nothing truly bad about it, but its just another stock standard, forgettable Lager.

Deep gold color with plenty of carbonation. The aroma is rich honey and bourbon with some cabbage. The taste is sweet honey and leaf lettuce with cabbage. Not bad, but it could use a little balance to the sweetness. A sticky mouthfeel.

Bottle - just not much going on. Very light in color, aroma and flavor. Watered down version of Heineken. Not bad, just not that good.

Lubiere (13548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2005
Can bought in Peguera, Spain. Light golden beer with a thin dissipating head. Light malty metallic aroma with chalky notes. Dry german hops in finsih, with lactic points. Medium bodied. Not that bad.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2005
Tastes like one of those cheap Euro-lagers that people buy from UK supermarkets because you can get pissed for half the price of the local brews. Gold colour, weak head. The zesty nose raises some faint hopes that are quickly dashed. First sip is chalky - in fact, positively astringent. However, it improves a little if you can get past that and develops some crisp Granny Smith apple character. But who has the time. Buy this if youre a 16-year-old Brit hosting a party while your parents are on holiday. And only if its on special. (Bottle)

Maybe I just dont like beers from the Netherlands, but sadly this was not very good. Reminds me of Heiniken and the time I spilled one on myself at the beginning of an 8 hour flight. Of course, that was when beer and alcohol were free on planes, whatever happened to those days?
