Corn should not be part of beer. I gave it a 2 for the 5.1% alcohol volume (better than the 3.2% rule in some US states). This is one of those beers you drink super cold to numb your taste buds and just get the alcohol effect afterwards.

From a 300ml bottle into a Hertog Jan pilsner glass.

A: Pours a pale, golden yellow. Frothy head of a couple of fingers, which stays for a minute or two. Leaves some lacing. The head retention is minimal, but it's there. No visible activity.
S: Some sweet maltiness and a bit of grassy hops.
T: On par for a standard (euro) lager. Some sweet malt flavor, but not much. There is a VERY light bitter aftertaste.
M: Drinks smoothly, is refreshing and crisp. Clean finish. Carbonation is within range for style..

Overall: Maybe a little sweet, but more pleasant to drink than other mainstream beers avaiable in The Netherlands. A solid standard lager that is easy to drink...a lot of.

I think I am going to rate this a little better than most people did. I am not saying that it wasn’t a little plain but this style is supposed to be a little bit neutral. It poured golden and transparent with not much carbonation to the body. The head was minimal but the lace was not bad. The aroma was more malty than hoppy but both were pretty mild. The flavor was a little bit grassy like a pils with some hop tones. The mouthfeel was medium and a little slick.
