3.21/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Format: a stumpy embossed green bottle with a fun swing-top and a decent macro label.

Appearance: pours a deep yellow colour a half-finger of decent white head that drops to a thick cap with good lacing.

Aroma: some grass hops and a touch of malts. Pretty boring to be honest.

Taste: the flavours are stronger in the mouth than on the nose. Definite grass hops with bready malts hanging about.

Aftertaste: some bitterness coming through from the hops along with a tiny bit of sweetness from the malts.

Mouth feel: light in body with a decent amount of carbonation.

Overall: not a bad lager at all, but neither is it anything too special. Pretty standard macro and a pretty standard macro price at AU$45 a case. Still, decent.

One of my first favorite beers, I used to buy these by the case in college whilst trying to look a tad more refined than my "whatever's cheapest" friends.

I think I like it a bit too much due to my dutch blood, and having drank gallons of the stuff on draft in the Netherlands during family visits.

It can definitely get skunky and flat here in the U.S., i've had some bad batches before.

My rating is skewed by nostalgia, but It is definitely a good dutch lager, best served VERY cold (chill a stein!).
