I couldn't resist. Just had to review this one as it's so immense popular here in the NL. But to me there are much better ones around. Even in the NL. I rated it from the tap as that's much better than the bottle. Actually bottled it's near undrinkable to be. If it's tapped fresh it looks not bad at all for a lager. Nice golden color with tiny bubbles and a firm head. The aroma is ... uh ... no there. Flavor is ok, at least your not thirsty anymore and you can drink a lot of it I guess if you like lagers but I do not. I know some guys at the brewery and they tell me the Pilsener (Dutch labels say Pilsener) is bottled as Lager for export. So it's the same beer. Why are there 2 entries here then? Don't know.

Had this one in Aruba. Quality ingredients, smooth malt flavor, and sharp hops. This is slightly better than the US imported Heineken. Usually the beer is skunky and it just makes me blanche but this one had much less of the skunky smell. When it's not skunky, an above average lager. It beats the hell out of any US production beer though, except for Sam Adams.
