Appearance: Fairly watery overall. Not much carbonation. Good initial foam, almost no lacing. Golden color, practically straw yellow. Lots of condensation on the glass.

Smell: Very faint peppery hop notes. Kind of a sweet muskiness as well. No metallic notes. Neutral overall.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Initial Dortmunder-like dryness. Sour, bitter, and sweet grassiness that balances pretty well. Sweetens as it warms. All in all very good. Great carbonation in the mouthfeel.

Drinkability: No complaints.

Overall: Definitely good overall.

Holland Lager 1839
12 oz. green glass bottle, dated "05-2015 23033250214"
$5.98/ six pack @ ALDI, 8521 W Hillsborough Ave, Tampa, FL

Notes: Brewed in Holland by H. West, Maarssen. Basic Euro-pils that's clearly designed to look like Heineken, and taste somewhat the same. The difference is that there are not as many hops, leaving both the flavor and the bitterness a little low, although mainly the hop flavor suffers. It's more towards the sweet side, but it remains in balance; and there are no defects. I drank a six-pack of this and all but the last bottle was free of skunkiness - oddly, the whole six pack was just sitting in a case with two others. I guess I got lucky. Overall... inexpensive and worth what it costs.

A - Poured out a clear, golden-yellow color with a small, white head of bubbly foam. No lacing to speak of.

S - It smelled slightly skunky with some grasses and caramel.

T - No skunky flavor. Sweet grains and caramel with some light grassy bitterness.

M - It was fairly crisp and sharp. Maybe a little thin and definitely light bodied.

O - This isn't great. I threw it into a mixed six pack because I wanted to try it.

Green 330 cl bottle from Aldis. Crappy after 6/14 according to bottle date. I grabbed one from in the back since the manufacturer doesn't understand basic beer making and why green bottles are bad.

Pale yellow. Straw. A bit of thin white head. Slightly fizzy.

Smells of slight pils malt sweetness, sulfur. Floral, spicy hops. Hint of phenolics like a ferment that wasn't quite spot on kind of a burnt rubber or smoky thing.

Tastes fairly clean, a light pils malt sweetness, noble hop flavor. Very nice hop spice flavor. Slightly more carbonated that I would like. It makes it gassy with some carbonic bite that doesn't blend well. Initially sweetness but finishes dry with some bitterness that lingers slightly. Hop / malt balance is fairly even.

Body is light to medium. Finishes a touch watery.

Overall it's a beer with some technical flaws that could be changed to have a very nice beer. The phenolic aroma is unpleasant. The pils flavor a little light. The body a little light. But, in the grand scheme, it's a solid beer. Price is a bit on the high side, however. $6 for 6. It's a $5 for 6 beer in its current form.

I used a glass to pour from the bottle. I got a thin light creme/tan colored head that faded quickly with little lacing. The aroma comes up with light cereal and malt. Taste is also light with malted grain and no hops. The mouth feel was light with some carbonation. Overall this lager would be ok for dinners as it won't overpower any course of the meal, but it's not among my favorites.
