500ml can - a very Dutch array of colours used for the label design.

This beer pours a clear, bright golden yellow hue, with four fat fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly ecru head, which leaves some complex archipelago lace around the glass as it quickly dissolves.

It smells weakly of crackery pale malt, semi-sweet grainy corn, a bit of indistinct stale citrus, and leafy, weedy, and moderately skunky hops. The taste is bready, grainy malt, corn grist, white chalk, metallic hard water, and tame weedy, wet straw hops. Simple is the best way to describe this, really.

The carbonation is fairly light and frothy in its bearing, the body medium-light in weight, and quite plain in its workaday smoothness - its only attribute being that there is nothing else really existing here to mess with things. It finishes barely off-dry, even the mixed malt getting bored to tears by the disaffected nature of this offering.

No off-flavours, hell - very little normal flavour either, for those of us keeping count. A bland, unassuming Continental lager, nothing to recommend, but nothing to turn your nose up at by the same measure, I gotta say. If beige was a taste and experience (wait a bit, and some overpaid marketing hack will actually pitch this, I'm sure), then Oranjeboom is replete with it.

Keep your money in your pocket and buy something else. This lager is reminiscent of all of those cheap watery lagers we used to have to buy as teenagers because we didn't have the funds to buy anything else. It's so light and tasteless that it can barely be considered worthy of even being on these forums - it's barely a beer! It's weak and doesn't even lead to anything of a buzz, so what's the point in it?

Brilliantly clear, minimal head. Slightly grainy aroma, and flavor is grainy and minerally. Body is moderate, with fairly high carbonation.

Easy drinking beer, clean, with a cracker grain backbone and light floral hops. The mineral character is unique and somewhat mouthwatering.
