Actually it tastes in Holland as draft drastically different from US bottles. My Gringo friend when he tried it in Amsterdam brewery said: Wow, if this beer would taste in US like that he would be drinking just Heineken all day long. May be pasteurization kills the bottle taste. In Holland they use premium A1 yeast strain and that what makes this beer very interesting. Plus a tradition...

Your average Euro Pale Lager; nothing special here. Some sentimental value for me, since this was the first beer I ever finished alone, but that's pretty much it, folks. A tell-tale tinge of lemon in the first sip, but that's probably just me and my oversensitive palate.

Enjoyable. Drinkable. Nothing special. I always consider this beer an American Pale Lager with an attitude.

Not much to say here, folks. Just your plain, every day, run-of-the-mill Euro pale lager. Not a bad beer, and probably gets more hate than it deserves for being a macro and such.

Purchased at the LCBO for $2.70 in a 500 ml can. Much better options out there for a cheaper price, and that's really my biggest concern.

Skunk flavor & smell from the light spoiling the drink inside the green bottles.

Way better out of the can in summertime, the bottles are usually skunky.

Unbelievable high-grade drinking beer (on the expensive side). A 5% Pilsner lager with a faint but crisp hops aftertaste. EuroBud basically.
