A- The coloration of this one is typically macro and Euro....pale gold, crystal clear and with lots of carbonation. The head disappears as quickly as it formed after the initial pour....whats left is a thin patchwork of soapy white film partially covering the beer. I do have to say that the the lacing is half decent looking, as it at least leaves behind some sticky clumps of foam on the glass, and they stay there too.
S- This is best summed up as follows (and in this order): corn, rice, barley malt, dry grass, no hops, and then more corn/rice. Very bland overall and again, smells eerily similar to an AAL.
T- When it's stated on the can that "select grains" were used, they must have meant that they use select cow corn in this beer...it is sweet initially, then finishes clean....too clean. This is very bland overall, following the aromas closely, and I think along with said corn adjunct, lots of white rice was used in this as well. In trying to find something positive, I can taste a hint of hop extract right after the swallow, as it leaves a bittering flavor down in my throat.
M- Thin, highly carbonated and 'sterile' clean, this Hollandaise beer has it all when it comes to nothingness on the palate...reminds me of a more flavorful Coors Light.
O- The only reason I bought this is b/c I honestly thought it was a nice beverage at a beer/wine/liquor festival that I attended....I was also hammered by the time I got around to sampling this one...it's no longer a 5/5 as I put in the book I had. On a hot day, this would be super refreshing I have to admit, but then so is Budweiser, and Bud is cheaper if I'm going that route! Not the absolute worst beer I've had but still....Thumbs down!

This is my first review and this is how most of my reviews will be, short, sweet and to the point.
Hollindia is a decent cheap beer. Id prefer it over a Bud, Miller or Coors. The price is right too. At Food 4 Less you can get a 4pk of 16.9oz cans for 2.99. That has to be one of the best deals you can get for a beer that wont make you gag. It really is like a cheap version of Heineken. Id recommend this beer to anyone who just needed a couple of beers for the night and was on a budget.
