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!).

It's a crisp beer that's way better when its cold than when it warms up. I think the cost is only justified if you're getting the bottles. because you don't see those Spring-top/flip-top/spring-top bottles anymore.

Best before 3/6/15.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, sugar, and slight grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable, but it gets noticeably worse as it warms up.

Serving type: bottle.
