Hard to properly rate the look considering I'm drinking it at a dark bar, however, from what I can see it is a very pale straw color. I detect a nice hop aroma at first, however, as the thin white lace subsides and I get further along in the drink its a mostly malty aroma. Taste and feel are very clean, malty, bready but very little hops bite or bitterness. Low carbonation. Has neither the spicy quality or the hops kick of other continental pilsners I enjoy. An uncomplicated, very clean and smooth pilsner but ultimately a bit bland for my tastes.

Grainy pils malts on the nose with light spice and a hint of earthiness. Presents a very clean and crisp palate with light grain flavors leading to a crisp, spicy, clean hop finish. Light and dry.

Pours from a bottle a pale yellow, coarse bubbles, no head (though this probably due to the glass here at the airport buffet at Schiphol.
Aroma is Pilsner malt, not of the grainy kind and continental hop extract without depth
Taste is Pilsner malt with rather strong but unfortunately biting bitterness enhanced by its dry taste
Rather thin though carbonation comes in a balanced way
Northern German Pilsener that is typical but not great. Industrial Lager. Not too bad but also nothing interesting
