Tiene una cabeza espumosa blanca que se disipa en unos pocos minutos. Es ligera y con una carbonatación media. Aroma a granos. En boca es dulce, refrescante y fácil de beber.

Pale gold with pretty good head retention
over carbonated without much flavour or noticeable aroma
I am just not impressed with this beer
I won't be buying it again!
Another unimpressive Dutch beer!
Chose Grolsch over this one in Holland!

The only beer choice available on a transcontinental flight.
Pours a golden color with a sizable lathery white head that displays good retention and lacing.
Not much to the aroma, mostly a slightly sweet cereal grain.
Likewise, the taste mostly highlights a light toasted malt sweetness. However, towards the end, some bright citrusy hops appear. The bitterness is mild and mostly fir balance.
Medium bodied with a round malt texture. Balanced and fairly smooth. It could have used a little more crispness.
Not remarkable, but I could have done much worse.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, unknown bottle code. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a small dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A touch of skunky aromas, but hardly detectable. Nice and pleasant aromas with pale malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice robustness of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal fruity notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice Euro pale lager. All around nice robustness of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the minimally bitter finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. This felt a bit old for sure, but it was tasty. Clean pale malts and mild earthy hop balance. A nicely enjoyable offering, and well made style example.

When you buy a beer for less than a dollar, you have to expect nothing. This is about as much as you get with this one. There isn't much to say about it except it is a pretty poor utility beer and I found it overly sweet.

Could this be the best Dutch beer? Probably. At least for me this one hit the spot. But is this really a Pilsener?
Starts very strange, with a smell like pure apple juice, quite fruity, and drinking it becomes quite neutral (which I prefer in terms of drinkability), with a slight apple-like taste lingers on and leaves hints of cinnamon behind.
Very pleasant, very drinkable, quite good, be what it be, feels great to be sitting and drinking this on the Adriatic coast.
