2.25/5 rDev -17.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5
Presentation: 12 oz stubby green bottle, states that the beer is brewed with crystal clear water, finest hops, select cereal grains and pure yeast … isn’t that what all American macro breweries put on their labels? No freshness date.
Appearance: Yellow straw colour with a semi sticky lace that fades to just a mere ring of lace.
Smell: Hmm … cooked cereal grain, ghost like DMS / cooked veggies and some husky grain make up the vaguely clean aroma.
Taste: Smooth with and odd crispness off the moderate carbonation, grain with undertones of cooked corn. Astringent flavours pull hard and leave a dry bitty mouth feel. Hops are processed and lean and add to the astringent flavours. More and more grain and astringency evenly flow, not to the point of not being drinkable. Big veggie after tastes is not pleasurable either.
Notes: Nothing like a crappy Dutch beer, Heineken may have done it right the bad way but this beer steals the show for being not only bland but with the imported lager taste too and doing it all the wrong way ... either way they are the same only this one is cheaper $$$ so buy this one over Heineken. This beer is just not happening at all.

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.
