3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Oh merciless crap its a budweiser clone in pilsner form!!!! So this poured out of an 11 ounce can (ha ha...very nice dutch touch) a fizzy yellow golden color. The head was mighty frothy and bubble bath like for about 2 minutes, then it died and so did the carbonation. It was as flat as a lizard squashed by a cadillac escalade in 4th gear. The aroma was corn, metal, starch, cardboard, and perhaps something resembling expired hops. The taste is super watery, corny, metally, with artificial sweetners, a nasty fake dryness, cardboard and sandpaper in the bite. Bad mouthfeel...getting rid of it is the only solution, and that should be done as quickly as possible. Not the worst canned product ever, but no redeemable qualities to which i would feel compelled to stamp an approval rating which would allow man in general to consume this. Fairly appauling in most respects..i cant wait til its gone...i'd hate to be the water that has to clean this out of my glass...
