Another Trader Joe's purchase at 4.99 at 6pk.(16oz cans) Looks a lot better that it tastes. Dark gold color with promising head. Very little aroma and light dry and very lightly bitter taste.

Not too bad on a hot day. A step up from the macro swill if that's a slight compliment. Won't buy it again if something better appears on the shelves at Joe's. Not a glutton for punishment but payday better come quick!

This beer pours a light yellow color with little head and lacing on the glass. The aroma is slightly malty, but not strong at all. The flavor is very soft on the tongue and has all the good qualities of a pilsner. It's very easy to drink and quite smooth. I give this one a thumbs up.

Didn't find anything to great about this beer. It poured a golden amber and had average foam for a lager. The smell was nothing to write home about. I could smell so malt, but nothing outstanding. The taste was just OK, again, nothing outstanding that would make me try it again.

A great looking lager beer that is light amber to dark gold with a half inch white head that dissipates moderately quickly. Superior lacing is noted from the remaining ring. A bit of a skunky smell from the green-bottled beer, but not highly objectionable. Remaining aroma is somewhat yeasty. The taste is decently balanced with no overpowering sweetness or bitterness. Refreshing overall sense and quite thirst quenching. A quaffable brew this appears to be.

The historic Orange Tree brewery was founded in Rotterdam in 1671, but closed in 1990. The brand was moved to the Three Horseshoes brewery (Drie Hoefijzers). It's now owned by Interbrew and seems to be getting more play in the market.
It pours a crystal clear golden body with an orange-ish cast. It's a bit darker than many similar lagers. The bright white head holds well before dropping to a creamy collar that leaves transient lace throughout the glass. A clean, softly grassy, and gently malty nose greets you. It's light/medium body appears nicely crisp in the mouth due to a fine, median carbonation. The taste, however, is quite basic with a well-balanced combination of moderately grainy malt (some adjuncts are used), light grassy hop flavor, and restrained bitterness. It finishes dry and refreshing; but leaves you wanting more. Well done, but quite mainstream.

Light gold, little effervesce activity, sticky white head, vertical strips of lace. Skunky nose, no growth beyond that... next to nothing after it “airs out”. Grainy palate, semi-sweet, hint of husk, the finish is softly spicy, this is when the carbonation is noticeable… really plain tasting. Clean finish, boringly dry. Yawn, a boring beer through & through. Skip it.

Pours a clear deep golden color with a tall and foamy white head that fades into a bubbly and sticky lace. Nose is fresh grass with a touch of honeysuckle. Very light in body and quite crisp. Taste is sweet malts at first followed by some strong medicinal notes similar to mouthwash. Very unusual. This is not a beer I plan to try again anytime soon.

Not much to say about this really. Basically is about as flavourful as soda water. Average looking lager with zero taste. And this was recommended to me in a bar in the Netherlands. Last time I go to that bar, I can tell you that much. Really so little to say cause it is awful but I have to keep typing or it won't let me post this.

Crystal clear medium golden color with sheets of carbonation and a small head that, as Jason says, looks exactly like frothed milk. The head retains well and offers lots of sticky glass coating lace. Massive skunky aroma overpowers the sweet malt scents and slight hops. Taste begins with faintly sweet malt, followed by cooked vegetables, finishes dry with a harsh medicinal bitterness. The mouthfeel is watery, although the head is wonderfully creamy. This beer is a curious mix of strengths and weaknesses.

Skunky aroma and nice piss-yellow color. I hate to say it but I'd drink a Heineken before this. Truly nasty. Unfortunately it's really a waste of a cool name. At this rate I am staying out of the low countries.

No different from things like, Heineken, Bavaria, Hollandia, etc. Sweetish flavour, light in body and taste, slight skunkiness, a bit funky, but generally bland, its hard to say anything good about it, except its drinkable.....just.

Presentation: 16 oz can with no freshness date, small blurb of history of the brewery that is now owned by Interbrew.

Appearance: Thin frothed milk looking lace with a bright golden hue.

Smell: The usual light grassy and veggie mix of malt and hops in the aroma, clean at that.

Taste: Clear lager snappish mouth feel, with a light to moderate body. Thin malt flavours are mostly a husky grassy grain and dry all over. Hops are mild with a modest bitterness and very little flavour. Faint alcohol and a ghost like citric fruitiness from the hops are all this beer has to offer. Monotonous dry finish after every sip.

Notes: There is not much to this lager at all, oddly there is not much of an imported flare which was the only surprise. I’d pick a domestic US macro before this one. The only thing that saved this beer for me was that it was quite clean with not too many off flavours or aromas.
