3.43/5  rDev +10.6%

Regular pilsener that you end up with at a restaurant most of the times.

A: The wellknowm yelow/white pattern.

S: Grains, hops and some hay/grass.

T: Grains, hops and a slightly bitter aftertaste.

M: Medium carbonation and a very light body.

D: Good enough to flush away some shoarma and on warm summer days.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short bright white head that quickly died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of Pilsener malts are present in the nose along with notes of floral hops.
T: The taste has flavors of bready malts along with hints of adjuncts and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is clean and goes down very easy. It isn't a bad representation of the style.

22 Oct 2012 saw me, my wife and 26 other members of the CAMRA Investors club have a wonderful afternoon as guests of the brewery: after a film show and giuded tour of the brewery we adjourned to the tasting celler bar where we were given seven different brews to taste: I had plenty of each!

This was the most tasteless of the beers offered: I had to have two glasses (on-tap), just be sure it was as bland as I thought it was after the first glass.

Looked like Mr Average Pilsner, golden, clear and of course it was as fresh as you are going to get: but it was just a wet fizzy drink that a few hops and a hand full of malts had been dropped in. Very disappointing, especially as we were being looked after so well. I've been kind with my scoring!

Another easily obtainable beer in the Dutch supermarkets, that I haven't reviewed.
Bottle of 300 ml of course.
The colour is golden yelo, with a nice creamy two finger white head, with very good retention. Average activity in the glass. The head disappears leaving light lacing oaound the glass.
Smell is almost non-existent, very faint malts.
Taste is not bad, quite on the hoppy side.Aftertaste is also bitter.
Average thinness on the body, slight carbonation.
Overall, this is one of your better options in a dutch supermarket, if you want to stay away from Heineken and Grolsch.

Drank this one in Amsterdam in bierbar in de Wildeman. Tapped in the original glass from Brand this pilsener shows itself from its best side. A very nice pilsener for the warm day we had in Amsterdam.

A nice big white head with a lightyellow fluid and almost no carbonation.

Fresh, tasty and 'can i have another one?' This is definetly one of the better Dutch pilseners.

Poured into a regular pilsner glass. The beer pours a clear yellow-golden color with a big fluffy white head.

Smell: Grains, hops and some grass (yeast) and some very well hidden fruits.

Taste: Typical pilsner taste, although in this one the grains are a bit more present, nice, fresh and hoppy (slightly bitter) aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-high carbonation and a watery-body (typical for a pilsner)

Overall: Nice pilsner, perfect football beer.
