The beer upon disembarking the bottle a crystalline gold color with a prodigious bright white and spumescent head, after desiccation the lace forms a thin velum like sheet to conceal the glass. Nose is sweet malt, typical pilsner crisp and fresh, start is moderately sweet and the top light. Finish is mediocre in its acidity, the hops as one would expect from a pilsner, pleasing and mild, quite dry aftertaste, drinkable but not a big hit with me.

This brew pours with a golden body topped by a thick, white, quickly disappearing head with a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is slightly sweet yet slightly sour with a touch of bitterness mixed in and a slight woody character. The flavor is slightly lacking but is well balanced, leaning towards woody, hoppy bitterness. The finish is slightly sour and bitter. Light bodied, smooth and dry.

Ok cheap pick of the day from Trader Joe's..extremelly cheap looking can design.
Actual;ly looks ok when poured into my glass..typical golden pils colour with a good sized almost creamy white head.
the aroma is ok..typical and thankfully not skunked at all
A nice just above average taste for a lager..some nice hoppiness and a taste of malt..its dry in the finish.
pretty average on the tongue.
A quite drinkabl;e lager..I must admit I was surprised..a good cheap beer for parties and BBQs.

330 ml can. 75 cents. How could I resist?
Looking back on the experience, it would have been a very good thing to resist. JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - AUG 5, 2003
Body looks like ginger ale with a fizzly white head. Very skunked aroma: smells like that michelob that rolled under the passenger seat last summer that you decided to drink. Taste is water, no hops or malt. Aftertaste is the same. It never ceases to amaze me how overcrowded the "piss beer" market really is

Very light golden with a dense white head--almost no colour at all! Skunky smell, nothing in the background of the aroma. Nothing in the taste, no hops nor malt. No palate either...a pretty bad beer all-around! Don't buy this beer, but if you really want it: I split this beer with fellow ratebeerian: JonR888710 which he bought at Trader Joe's in Falls Church, Virginia. urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2003
ONly trace hops in the nose. Flavor alternates between a light sweetness and grainy dryness. Finish is terrible: grips like dry rubber. On the whole,, reminscent of Japanese lagers. Memorable for its horrible finish. Aggie80 (818) - Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 Metallic smell/taste. Pale golden color. A little lacing, light hoppy over taste with a hint of grape reminiscent of malt liquor. Not really a good thing. Dorwart (2583) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2003
Thin head but decent carbonation which ends with some nice lacing. About the only good thing about this beer. Pale gold color. Typical imprted pilsner. Very watery taste. Slight dry finish with a little hops. Don't waste your money. I only have it because someone gave it to me in a sampler pack. beastiefan2k (3900) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2003
If it looks cheap it will probably taste cheap, as does this poor excuse for a Dutch pil. Tastes like bud mixed with a light heineken, no real taste to speak of. The only good thing is the alcohol content, i do not know what it is but one beer is stronger then any regular american beer.
