330ml bottle. 10.2014. Very pale gold colour. Reasonable off white head which settled to a ring and not much lacing. Fairly typical Euro lager aroma, slight grainy malt and some grass, gentle and inoffensive. Light sweetness a touch of citrus on tasting and some light bitterness in the finish. Light bodied and a very quick dry finish leave you wondering if you had a mouthful or not. 6.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Straw colored with a good head and decent lacing.

Smell: Grains with a hint of hops.

Taste: Sweet grains and a touch of hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with very little aftertaste.

The Verdict: Not bad. Fairly well balanced and goes down smooth. Almost too smooth. Nothing outstanding about it, but nothing to complain about either.

Oranjeboom Premium Beer has a medium, off-white head, a clear, deep golden appearance, with numerous miniscule white particles floating about, and a some pretty decent lacing left behind. The aroma is of grassy hops and pungent, sweet barley, and the flavor is just like that, with some white bread and a fairly robust hop bitterness at the end of the sip. Mouthfeel is tending towards light and watery, and Oranjeboom Premium Beer finishes mostly dry, refreshing, tasty, and easy drinking. This is a good, lower-priced substitute for over-priced beers like Heineken or Stella Artois.

500mL can poured into a Shaker pint glass. Date stamp on bottom of can: 13.12.12 02:45, E13.03.14 FL

Appearance: Clear amber gold. Initial white head upon pouring died back to nothing pretty quickly after pouring. No lacing.

Smell: Typical lager smell. Light aroma - mostly malt with just the tinest bit of hop herbal smell in there.

Taste: Crisp, sweet. Hops are barely there, but start to come out a bit as the beer reaches room temperature - just a bit of noble hop flavor. Otherwise very much a malty simple lager.

Mouthfeel: Juicy and a bit fizzy. Nothing special.

Overall / Drinkability: Not bad, but nothing special. Good drinkability though - washed down chicken and caprice salad easily without getting in the way. I think that's what makes this beer - it's an average beer, versatile with food, but nothing special. A staple beer to have with food if you're not looking for something interesting.
