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.

Pilsner appearance, light carbonation. The smell is more complex than other cheap beers that I've had. This one has a cereal nose with a hint of, you never would have guessed it, orange. The taste is nothing special, just crispness in a can, and you can certainly drink many of these guys. I'd say this is a great summer beer. Overall, I'm impressed for the price. This shows that the Europeans make great cheap beer where America makes shitty cheap beer. Go craft in America, go cheap in Europe. That's my slogan.

Pale golden color with two fingers head with medium retention.
Aroma of grassy hops.
Similarly, flavor of grassy hops and malt sweetness.
Aftertaste a bit watery and I felt some oxidation, though not annoying.
Light Pilsner with a refreshing sensation, for a hot day.
