30cl Bottle brought back from a mission in Holland: best before May 2013, poured into a Duvel glass on 10 Dec 2012.

It was better than the Hertog Jan beer I had next, but it didn't have to rty hard!

Typical Pilsner look: golden, clear and with a white head that couldn't wait to leave.

Grainy nose with a crisp and semi-sweet taste. Nothing sets it apart from thousands of simular Pilsner/Lagers around the world. Refreshing and non-taxing on the taste buds, un-offensive and ideal to quench your thirst after a days graft: but not a beer the chase after.

It's good to see the standard European taste of pilsner extending to the Dutch inspired islands in the southernmost Carabean sea. The full flavor that's the fame of bohemian pilsners is a far cry from the light industrial lagers that I feared.

A standard light straw color captures the eye with bright clarity and exuberant carbonation. The bubbles race to the top of the glass like champagne, but then standing tall to create a fuffy cotton white head with semi-firm retention and lightly sticky lace.

Pilsner malt is front and center as the scent of the beer shows light grainy sweetness, cracker-like breads, yeasty bread dough, and mild vegetal undertones. The full pilsner scent captures a very light buttery note that makes me read "fullness" into the fold. An herbal hop balance gives a mild floral and earthy note that creates a notion of honeysuckle, apples, pears, and light berries.

The taste is crisp and zesty, but still keeps the taste of pilsner malt the focus. Bready crackers, light corn syrup, and mild buttery tones allow a semi-firm pilsner taste to linger into finish. But before that, the balancing hop taste of floral/fruity tones, freshly torn tea leaves, and muddled grasses provide an even keel earthy counterpart before turning spicy and bitter to finish.

Medium-light in body, the beer would shed its malt sweetness sooner to usher in a crisper finish, but the cereal grain sweetness and mild oils provide an extra element of fullness, if ever so slightly. But a late palate of fleeting malt, hop dryness, and minty alcohol warmth closes the beer in true pilsner fashion.

This Czech-style pilsner still provides a mostly crisp and clean refreshment, but the residual yeast character of corn and butter provides more rounded flavors and textures before doing so.

Poured from a bottle 300 ml.

Very clean yellow colour, with almost no bubbles. Nice white 2 finger head. Smell not that good, smells of hay. Thin bodied on palate Tastes as so many other Dutch beers, nothing distinctive. I wouldn't mind it on a hot summer day as it seems a great thirts quencher.
