4.55/5  rDev +30.7%

Drank a glass of this at the Worm in Rotterdam.

Appearance: Very fluffy and smooth head, but the color isn't so remarkable. Crystal clear dull yellow.
Smell: Very unpilsner like. Sweet and fruity, smells like an amber beer.
Taste: These fruity amber qualities are retained in the taste, but it's as light as a pilsner, if not lighter.
Mouthfeel: Mildly carbonated and very smooth, Feels wonderful on the tongue.
Drinkability: Excellent. Whether consumed casually or otherwise.

Someone told me that the brewer behind this beer had worked for Heineken for 20 years, then tried to clone it and that's what this is. But it doesn't taste anything like Heineken and it's far better and quite interesting. Apparently it's called Olm because the brewery is on Olm street.

Came with a label that just had handwritten Olm on it. Poors out nicely though and has great and lasting head. Nose is fruity, malty and litle green of hops. Fresh and clean only litle paper noticeable. Taste is good too; good combination of malt and hoptaste, litle sweet and fruity again. Aftertaste is litle bitter and some sweetmaltarome. Mouthfeel is litle empty as should be for a pils but also fresh and enjoyable. Good brew IMO but wonder witch brewery this produced?

First of all. This brewery does not exist. The beers are brewed somewhere in Belgium but I'm afraid I don't know where. And the beer, not impressed at all. Belgians know how to brew excellent ales but lager is not their thing. They really should stick to the ales. It's thin, it's nasty hop bitter (not that it's very bitter but what's there is just nasty), there are no malts, nothing.
