16.9 oz can into a pub glass. Tastes like a subpar pilsner. Kind of metallic. There's a lot better out there. Decent looking beer though.

Clear amber-gold cold colored beer with a tall white colored head.

Smells of toasted grains and some vegetable scent. Some caramel and grassy hop.

At first it tastes of grain and some medium hop bitterness. Mildly sweet with a slight tobacco flavor.

Overall an OK cheap beer.

I think this beer is quite good. Had it in the can, and it's pretty tasty, looks good, smells good. Picked up the single, but if I were in the mood for a Dutch beer, I would certainly pick up more than just a single. It's not the BEST beer I've ever had, but I would rate it superior than many others. ;)

16.9 oz can into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden color. The head is three fingers high, and white in shade. I like how fluffy the head's texture is, and it has pretty good retention to boot. Some lacing is left on the glass.

S: Smells much like a cheap Euro lager - it's a bit hoppier than the Buds of the world (I do notice the noble hops), but it still has some cereal grain character and plenty of sweet malts. About what I expected it to smell like.

T: Huh? This tastes somewhat oxidized. It also has the typical grainy lager sweetness, but that vaguely fruity and sherry-like character is unmistakable. There's a bit of noble hops on the finish - and I can't say enough how welcome this character is in a cheap lager. The bitterness builds slightly as more is consumed, and again, that's just so freakin' welcome. It is what it is, folks - for a macro lager, it's pretty good.

M: While it does have a healthy sweetness, it's dry and hoppy enough to quash this somewhat. Its body is fairly full for a lager, but not flabby. Quite well carbonated.

O: In many ways, us 'Murican beer drinkers are conditioned to think that European macro lagers are better than US macro lagers. While not a great beer by any stretch, this is superior to all of the BMC crap flooding the market. If cheap lagers happen to be your thing, then this is definitely worth a try.
