Had from tap in Amsterdam. Undoubtedly significant better than the beer imported in the US. Solid cheap lager beer. Sweet aftertaste, otherwise a simple taste. Great feel. I give it a thumbs up

Forced review: Not a bad beer. Had it on tap in Amsterdam before and there was a noticable difference between that and the bottled version in the US. Fresher is better, but either way it doesn't deserve a "poor" rating on BA.

Straw gold with a low quickly dissipating head. Traces of skunk, a little corn, slightly sweet, on the nose. Light grains, moderately low hops, light skunk, light sweetness on the palate. Light to medium light body and above average carbonation.

This beer is more of a nostalgia thing for me. Drank a ton of it while sailing around the Florida Keys when I was younger. I've loved it ever since (only because it reminds me of that trip). Seems to be my go to beer when I'm out to dinner, etc.

Every single time I've had it, its had a distinctive aftertaste. Not exactly "skunk" but not exactly welcomed, either. I only drink it now when I'm stressed out on an airplane.

This is an okay beer if you are just running to the store to grab something. A little watered down in body. Pale strawish color. A small hint of skunky-ness in aroma and flavor.

I don't like strong beer, so this beer is kinda strong flavor and strong taste.
Feel like heavy but it is okay.

This is seriously one of the worst beer I have ever had. There are way too many other beers out there to knowingly drink skunked beer.

Well, I drank this beer out of a bottle many times and I didn't experience much skunkiness, even though the bottles have been sitting in the basement for months and the date expired by a few months. This is a good beer, when compared to most of the AAL out there. It's a little too carbonated, though, also, it's overpriced here in the US.

Solid beer. Skunky smell out of the bottle, not so much out of the can. It's a bit pricey in the States, but still a good beer.
