look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Presentation: 12 oz green bottle, “Ingredients: water, malted barley and hops” stated on the back label. No freshness date.
Appearance: Weathered straw colour has a great clarity, fluffy white head settles down to a bubbly stick blanket of lace.
Smell: Husky grain with a mild skunky imported lager aroma. Hops range from a ghost like skunk to herbal in the aroma.
Taste: Smooth, almost buttery, mouth feel that brandishes a half hearted crispness that is a bit astringent. Moderate body. Grassy, grainy and a tad veggie / herbal. Grassy and grainy from the malted barley, taste of fresh cut hay and crackers. Veggie and herbal from the hops, tingling bitterness balances the brew and the flavour gives flavours of fresh herbs and leafy undertones. Light sprig of alcohol in the mouth, not too dry and not expressively sweet but a little bit of both in the after taste.
Notes: Not as coarse as other lagers from Holland that come to the US. All of the herbal and grainy flavours still make it somewhat of a chore to drink. Pair it with some grilled turkey sausage and kraut.
Serving type: bottle
