It’s also from Holland. Isn’t that veird? But since it said “Dutch Lager” on the label I was momentarily confused. I had just finished a lager from Holland – Bavaria Holland. Now I had a Dutch lager. Variety is the spice of life. Then I remembered the Dutch are from Holland. Sure enough, it is imported from Holland. That has always confused me. Couldn’t they have just been the Dutch from Dutchland, or the Hollanders from Holland? Anyway, this stuff is actually brewed in the Netherlands, and who knows what those people are called. I certainly don’t.
This beer tastes exactly like Bavaria Holland, so much so that I got a Bavaria Holland bottle out of recycling to compare. The shoulders are a little higher, so not identical, but very close. Same green glass. Same great taste.
