look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A- One finger head which dies quickly. Good tracing.

S- Skunky, slight malt and grain smell but nearly untraceable.

T- Unfortunately the skunky smell lead to a skunky taste. Very dry and watery.

M- Very watery with a very bitter aftertaste, so at least it has a lot of hops; still very dry and a horrible finish.

Not amused overall with this beer. I could see this being a crowd-pleaser for the dry-beer crowd and for those who prefer a more hoppy beer, but this beer is one of my opposites.

The most exciting thing about this beer is it's advertising!

Pours a nice straw yellow, the head starts decent, but very rapidly dissipates. Hardly anything to lace the glass. Not as bitter as other European pilseners.It may possibly be "off" due to its being in a green bottle, that said; I would not go out of my way to buy this, but would drink again if offered.

Had this beer any times, had it again today so I will add a review.
Had it from the bottle so I did not see the actual beer. I know it is looks like any other macro pilsener.

It doesn't smell too good to me, but it can't be skunk because it comes in brown bottles over here.

Taste is reasonable, it does not taste too bad but the aftertaste is wierd and bad in my opinion. The beer is a bit sweet which is good and it has an unpleasant bitterness.

Overal an average lager, certainly not the best of the Dutch macro lagers.
