A light beer, brewed with high-quality hop, wheat, malt and pure water. Smooth in flavour with a bitter that manifests itself in the aftertaste. Light-coloured and clear beer with a sweet nose of grain and citrus fruits. On the palete, this continues with the sweet-bitter flavour of hop and malt, tones of citrus fruits and a clean aftertaste. A quick finish concludes with a slightly bitter tone that leaves a dry finish.

    Yellow brew. Mainly cereal and light noble hops in the presentation. Slightly vegetal and sweet, otherwise pretty clean. Nothing special, nothing offensive.

    Can: clear yellow gold, 2 finger rocky cap with modest retention, well carbonated. Aroma of cooked cereals, some noble hop tones, not bad. Flavor is light, malty, clean light hop balance, fast dry finish. A decent enough commercial pils, a bit thin and not as good as Bavaria premium but OK.

    The beer pours a translucent pale yellow colour with a weak white head. The aroma is grassy malt, weak hops, and metallic. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is grainy with a hint of hops, quite drinkable, but not outstanding. Certainly not as chemically as other swills.

    Had a few of these last night at band jam. Tonight, from the glass, pours a light golden colour with a big white head, that is almost-creamy that had great retention and foamy lacing. Grainy wheat smell at first (that is more like corn, but corn is not an ingredient listed). After sitting a bit, some mild spicy hop appears. Smooth mouthfeel that is more on the boring side of things. The taste is way too light with some grain and hardly any finish. A decent price for a can from Holland at the LCBO, but much prefer Heineken. The head is quite nice though, and that is it.

    A bright golden colored beer. A medium sized, creamy textured, white head rises above. Pretty good hang time on this one. Settles into a thick frothy ringlet atop the body and film aside the glass. The nose is sweet corn and skunky grassy hops. The tasting has a similar sickening metallic flavor. Though a medium bodied beer I’ll not take another.

    "Pick-A-Six" #2. Beer #3. Hollandia. Light amber color with a small barely noticeable white head. Tastes just like Heineken without the bad skunk smell to it. Basically a way better Heineken. Will have again.

    Yellow/straw colour. Pours good head, leaving nice lace. Some effervesence. Weird nose....a strange hint of meat pie. Dunno what that is, but it's making me hungry. Some floral notes in there, with pale malt. Bit flat I think...could be the bottle. Flavour nondescript...balance of malt & hops that makes it approachable, and quaffable. Definitely a session beer for when the attention is elsewhere. A drying finish that has some pleasant back palate. I would rather drink this than its "Bavaria" stablemate... but only just.

    Yellow colour, huge bubbly white head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of hops. Soft malty flavour with weak hoppy notes. Ok lager, but nothing which would make you jump of joy and excitement...

    clear pale golden colour, little foam, slightly herbal, fat hoppy nose, sweet and oily, medium-bodied at best, aftertaste of wet carton - hmmm, nothing for me

    Pours a medium pale yellow, nice head at first, pretty good lacing, seems like a slightly weaker version of becks, not bad bittereness but a enjoyable and very refreshing beer.
