I picked up a few tall boy cans at Trader Joes last week and just cracked a cold one to have after a day in the sun. Not bad at all--simple, crisp, refreshing lager. Reminds me of a lighter version of Grolsch. Some nice light hops and malt. A touch of the Euro lager skunkiness too. Overall, an enjoyable brew and certainly better than most cheap American brews.

16.9oz can purchased at Trader Joe’s in Spokane for $1.25. On the bottom of the can was a best by date of 11/10/14. Close attention to the label of the can reveals this “Dutch Lager” was contract brewed in Braunschweig, Germany by “Hofbrauhaus Wolters GMBH.” Although the Reinheitsgebot does not apply to the Netherlands (or, in this day and age, Germany), there’s boilerplate regarding how the beer was brewed using only water, hops and barley, but there’s no mention of yeast! Hopefully, that was an oversight and this is not a yeastless beer.

Poured into a glass, this beer was a color not unlike that of apple juice. There was a thin white head that soon receded to a foam collar but never entirely disappeared.

The nose was malty, with a tiny whiff of grassy hops. Although skunkiness was absent, it was otherwise a dead ringer for many an uninspiring Eurolager.

Not much flavor to be had here. The beer is vaguely crisp, with a clean finish. Just a little malty sweetness and a very mild tinge of hop flavor.

Watery, clean finishing mouthfeel. Carbonation seemed a little low.

This beer is a cheap, inoffensive but otherwise unnoteworthy beer. I can’t conceive why I would be drawn to try it again.

A standard pour of Bierbrouwerij B.V.'s Oranjeboom yields a straw-yellow body capped by a snow-white fizz that rises tall and falls fast. The head is supported by a moderate amount of carbonation, and therefore manages to stick around a while as a thin ring of foam.

The nose is standard for the style. Malts give off the smell of bread dough complemented by some very mild grassy notes and a touch of black pepper. Metallic aromas are mild, but palpable.

The taste more or less follows the nose. Metallic flavors are mild, but unwelcomely present, in the first sip. My tastebuds must adapt quickly, because they are absent in subsequent sips. A light touch of toasted grain augments the flavor profile. The beer is thin on the palate, a characteristic I'd welcome in summer heat.

Overall, Oranjeboom is a decent macro-style lager that I'd drink again if in the mood for the style. It's certainly much better than most of the macros produced on this side of the Atlantic.
