This is my all time favorite beer! I find it’s quite enjoyable on a crisp fall day. The first time I had this was about 35 years ago. I’ve always loved Heineken lager, but the brown label/bottle on this caught my curiosity, so I tried one. It’s not bitter, in fact it’s balanced very well. Nice toasted malt taste upfront, goes down smooth no unpleasant after taste. Not overly hopped( thank goodness), poured into a frozen mug, it has thin lacing and soft head. Approximately 2 fingers. Great aroma, very pleasant to drink. Will take this one over any craft crap beer!

Bought a 6-pack from Sam's club $7.27
Dark color
Medium mouthfeel
Medium carbonation
Sweet, light caramel taste. Nothing exciting. Kind of a flat taste0
Overall just ok. I wouldn't buy it again. I prefer the Heineken lager,

It pours a dark cola color with a thin tan head. The smell is of caramel and the taste is rich caramel and roasted malts. The mouthful is medium with a dry finish. Overall a decent offering.

AROMA: Caramel and slight coffee notes.
LOOK: Dark Amber pour. Small head.
TASTE: Caramel and coffee, plus a bready taste. Dry stale bread.
FEEL; A little flat and stale.

I remembered this more fondly.

Dutch Bock?

Not a bad copy but a copy nonetheless. Yes, the dark malts shine through, sure, the hops are apparent. I just find, while drinking it, feeling like it's almost this or almost that without really establishing an identity of it's own.

I just can't see a place for this in my fridge.
