For millions of people, when a beer is compared to Coors Light it's seen as a positive endorsement. I am not one of those people. I think Coors Light tastes like bland piss and that pretty much sums up Hollandia lager.
When I poured this Dutch lager, I was looking forward to a good tasting beer. I have generally had good experience with Dutch beers, and I figured this would be another one. A nice foamy head developed when poured and the colour was a typical pale lager gold. So far, so good.
The taste was very mild and unassuming. It was almost too mild. I thought, maybe it was just me. I had just finished a nice malty German beer about 30 minutes before I had this one, so I thought it was just a clash of tastes in my mouth between the two beers.
I decided to have Carolyn try it, and her response describes this beer perfectly. "It tastes like Coor's Light. I like it", she exclaimed. No wonder I thought this beer's taste was too mild. It's because it is!
After thinking about what Carolyn said, she was right. It does taste like Coor's Light. Maybe that's a positive review for you, but for me, that's a kiss of death. If you love Coor's Light, I strongly suggest you get a few Hollandia. You'll love them. However, if you like a little flavour with your beer, steer clear of it. This beer only deserves two burps, and that's all it gets.
Drinking the world.
One beer at a time.
