Gulpener Chateau Neubourg has a thin, off-white head, a golden, bubbly, somewhat murky appearance, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is strong and pungent- strong barley malt, a touch of hop resin, and biscuit. Taste is similarly strong, with a noticeable sugary sweetness and a grassy hop bitterness for balancing. Mouthfeel is medium, and Gulpener Chateau Neubourg finishes mostly dry, filling, and good. Check it out!

Cool tall blue bottle (Pretty much the reason I picked this up)
Poured into a flute, it's a very pale yellow with a decent head and loads of carbonation.
Grain and malt in the smell, pretty much exactly as one would expect from a pilsener. Maybe some flowery aroma hiding in there.
More grain in the flavour and some good bitterness, pretty strong taste for a pilsener which counts in it's favour, otherwise it's nothing out of the ordinary.
Light body makes for easy drinking.
Overall it's a good pilsener but it doesn't bring anything special to the table aside from the blue bottle.

11.2 ounce bottle - $7.00 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.
Appearance: Good heavens, is all I can grumble when the bottle is set before me. Pours out a very slightly hazed gold body with a small, hasty, white head.
Smell: Grainy-scented malts, a little sweetish in the nose with a thin hint of stale dried herbs. Rather unappealing.
Taste: Sweetish pils with a hard-hearted graininess. Modestly bitter hops giving a taste of banal dried herb. Then, a little bit of astringency catches your attention just as the sweetness kicks back into the gear in time for the less-than-crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Bleh, what a complete waste of seven bucks! If only Gulpener had put half as much time and effort into the beer as they did the embossed blue bottle.

Poured from a 330 ml blue bottle. The bottle itself looks so nice, I don't see beers in blue bottles that often.
Its colour is deep golden yellow and it produces a one finger head which stays for relatively ong time.
Strong smell of malts.
Great, strong taste, as bitter as I like it!
Medium thickness on the palate and quite carbonated.

From a female perspective: I love this beer! It tastes perfect with absolutely everything. Drinking it from the tall glass is the only way it should be served. It feels like I drink something exclusive and when I look at the bottle, it is so pretty (sorry guys). I have been a big fan of all Gulpener beers and am so happy that Chateau Neubourg is now served in Atlanta. Only wishing it is going to be served soon in my neck of the woods.

Just moved to Atlanta from Holland and was real happy to find out that they sold Chateau Neubourg in Atlanta. What a great tasting beer, and knowing abit about it's background, I have to say that it's an organic beer made in Holland is enjoyable with many different meals. And I love the Blue Bottle, it compliments the taste of the beer to help you feel like you are really drinking something special.
Yeah, I am a fan of this beer!

Chateau Neubourg is sold now in Atlanta I love the fresh taste and the elegant blue bottle.
I tasted Neubourg on draft when visiting Holland earlier this year.
That was quite an experience. Over there draft beer is served at a temperature of about 50 F. I believe that at that temperature the beer tastes much better
The ABV is 5.50 % , not 5.00%

I found this wonderful imported craft in the beautiful " blue bottle" in Atlanta. What a great little find. The bottle itself prompted many comments, inquiries and curious samplings from the other patrons around me.
This pilsner is anything but ordinary. It pours clean and is a visually striking yellow-gold with a very white full bodied head. The taste is very memorable-full with a slightly nutty finish. It is 33 IBU's, but far more sessionable than other European Pilsners. At 5.6 ABV it hits the spot, but is certainly beer that you would want and can have 3-4 in a sitting.
Gulpener's Chateau Neubourg has redefined pilsner for me.

Tall, thin blue bottle (33cl), nicely packaged beer, obtained in Holland during a resent beer buying mission.
Third beer in my 23 Oct 2010 'Pilsner/Lager reviewing evening'. The brew had a best before date of Apr 2011 and poured into a 'Veltins' stemmed tulip.
Score of three for a non-smelling lager/pilsner, the beer however looked fine a typical Czech Pilsner even down to the way the head lost its depth straight away.
Crisp, dry and refreshing, again just like a true Czech Pilsner.
Mr average to be honest, in almost all aspects.

This beer pours a clear golden color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes slowly into decent lacing. The aroma bready malt, hints of light caramel, and soft spicy noble hops. The taste is like the aroma. It is well balance with a little more hops the malt, but that is what makes a nice Pilsener. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied, with lively carbonation. Overall, this is a nice Pilsener that I could easily drink again.
