Another Dutch pale lager, sure I'll bite, I'm easy. No disappointments here if expectations aren't too high. Just another mild, slightly malty/hoppy, clean commercial product that also appears to sell well.

I'll bite again if I can get it cheap.

This is a great Euro tasting, inexpensive lager. Don't understand all the low ratings here...? Stick with your cinnamon pumpkin nutmeg beer from TJs or Buttweiser, I guess. Gave all 5's b/c Food 4 Less stopped selling it and I miss it.

Bright pale straw with moderate activity. Slightly foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of skunk, sweet grains, acidic bitter noble spices, and vinegar. Very sharp, sour and almost vinous. Slick medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium strength finish from all that leafy and grassy bitterness, faint roasted malts, and a wet cardboard feel. Feels stale, highly acidic, and not fresh at all. Faint flavors, but a very bold finish for a lager. Overall awful quality craft.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear gold color with a large white head. The aroma is the most disappointing aspect of this beer. It is bland and rather nasty; consisting of grain and stale vegetables. The taste is better than the smell, but it is not very good. It is grain and some malt. Overall, a great beer to play quarters with or beer pong but not good for much else.

On sale at Ralph's. Four bucks for a four pack of 500 mL cans. Hell I can cook with it if it's as nasty as the price point. Some Julian Code for dating.

A: Into a pilsner glass. Pale straw, bordering on the AAL levels of lightness and clarity. Big carbonation streams up to form a head that is bleached white and dissipating fairly quickly. Large bubbles collapse and die on the glass, leaving nary a trace of their short existence.

S: Smells like the other 90 billion green bottle monstrosities that exist in the world. Malt is pale and grain like. Hops are extract with herbal and even slightly vegetal qualities.

T: Tastes about the same, only less skunky. Maybe that's the light protection of the can. LIttle metallic on the end but then it just falls off. Like a light version of a Euro Pale Lager. Oh, also some bruised green apple on the end.

M: Not too bubbly, but there is a sharp cripsness mid palate and some kind of warmth. I hope I'm not getting a booze characteristic from a Euro Pale Lager at 5%.

O: Pretty bad, but really, really cheap. I'd love to check out some Tesco brand next time.

Golden beer with large foam head. Aroma of sweet cereal grain and a little metallic. Taste is slightly sweet, bready and a mild hop bitterness. Soft on the palate. Not too bad actually.

F you neckbeards. I'm giving this 5 across the board because it's inexpensive, purer than the domestic crap, and does the trick. It's a refreshing beer for this summer. And I remember when Euro beers were the snobby thing to love. So there. Grab a 4 pack for $1 and go ape s**t!!!!
