    Aroma of corn and perhaps some hop. Perhaps not. Light golden color with a non-lacing white head that didn’t stay long. Starts corny sweet. Nearly medium mouthfeel. The good news is that there is a reasonable amount of hop in the finish.

    There is definitely nothing special about this lager actually for a dutch beer it is rather disappointing. Aroma is yeasty with a slight sweet smell. The appearance is fairly off-putting as it is pee colour yellow with tons of stuff floating in it. The taste is not great either. A less than average beer.

    This is a bit run on, but I thought this to be humorous enough to share. From the website:

    "Alfa Brouwerij is the only Dutch brewery to extract its brewing water from a spring certified by the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport"
    .....there's more.....
    "Aunt Wies, who has been living at the brewery since 1913, is still tasting the filled beer every morning. No bottle leaves our brewery without her approval!"

    bahahhha killer! My beer has been approved by someone who can only taste food if it is covered in salt.....here's my review:

    Expect nothing but your average Euro brew. Beer is weak pee gold with so much crap floating in in you'd swear that you got a pint poured out of terribly mouldy lines. Instantly created a monster rocky white cap that managed to dissipate to near to nothing. Every swish does produce lots of spotty lacing. Aroma is quite refreshing actually. Lemon hits first and then is followed by dry grass and yeast. The lemon is pretty good actually! Taste is off a bit, but nothing bad - just something a bit different. You'll still find the usual yeast and dryness with grass and an odd strong bitterness that does not quite fit in but does distinguish this beer as not totally run of the mill...maybe I should check the bottom of the bottle for Aunt Wies's dentures...... I'm not sure if I should give this a 7 or a 5 for taste. Mouthfeel is ok with lots of carbonation. Light bodied obviously. Touch sour (very tiny ammount). Varying levels of bitterness. Oxydized. I'm not sure if this is a clone of Alfa Brummen or if it's just an export only version but it will do. If I have to look at all the garbage floating around in my glass anymore I might puke. Looks like it's half frozen. Beer is good though.

    As Dutch beers go, this is an average beer. Although I say that it is average, it is still somewhate enjoyable to drink. If you see it in the store, and it’s on sale, I would buy it. If it has that import price, I would look the other way. All in all, it’s an enjoyable brew, but it won’t have you screaming "Whoa!" like that Samuel Adams Light beer comercial touts.

    Wow, yet another dull-as-hell green-bottled Euro-swill beer, this one from The Netherlands. Yippee. Color me thrilled (not).

    This comes across as something of a classier (Euro-yuppier?) version of most other Dutch beers -- like some dweeb who thinks his kit-car is somehow cooler than the other clunkers on the Autobahn. The truth of the matter is that this is right in the mediocore realm as most other Dutch beers out there, including Peter's, Oranjeboom, Grolsch, etc, etc, and so on, and so on.

    Nothing completely repulsive, but nothing going for this that you can't get elsewhere.

    Basically, I bought this for the label, to add to the collection. The beer was exactly what I expected. Green bottle, so it was skunked, of course. Yellow, fizzy, tasted like a Heineken knock-off. Sorry, just not much to recommend here.
