Hmm, not much to say about this one.
A: Pale gold filtered lager - reasonable head which collapses quickly but never entirely disappears.
S: Buttery malt - little hop aroma detectable - I mean, it's a Pilsner - where's my hops?
T: Weak, a balance of alcohol and light malt. Very little hops flavour detectable, not enough bittering to balance the malt.
M: Clean; failrly refreshing. Little finish.
D: Nah, too boring. I don't think I'd want another. This is more a lager for people who don't really like lager, but don't want their mates seeing them drinking alcopops. Give me something with flavour next time.
It's really difficult to understand why this seems to be the biggest selling of the Dutch lagers when, to my mind, it's probably the most dull and flavourless of them all. Try a Grolsch, or even better a Brand instead.

Had this one in Aruba. Quality ingredients, smooth malt flavor, and sharp hops. This is slightly better than the US imported Heineken. Usually the beer is skunky and it just makes me blanche but this one had much less of the skunky smell. When it's not skunky, an above average lager. It beats the hell out of any US production beer though, except for Sam Adams.
