Pretty good as a premium lager, but not a quality Pilsner. I like the smell & the taste up front is light & malty & the finish is lightly hopped. Overall, it is balanced in flavor & would drink again, but prefer German pils over the European style of this brand. For example, I drank it with the Ayinger Bavarian Pilsner and Ayinger tastes so much better.

450ml green bottle. Swing top cap. Label is marked for best by date of 'MAR2024'.
Clear, pale gold colored body. Longer lasting white head, with lots of rising bubbles. Leaves behind partial walls of lacing.
Aroma is a little skunky, with caramel and grain malts. Has a fruity note that is close to raisin.
Taste is caramel malts. Fruity yeast esters. Slightly bitter at the end. Has a metallic note.
Fuller mouth feel. Clean finish. Very good carbonation.
The fruit notes are distinct, and again, remind me of raisin.

I thought it was a pretty good beer. Definitely will buy again. Bottle will look great in my collection. Smells malty when you crack it open. Taste is also pretty malty. I liked it overall and will buy again. Great with steaks too.

Certainly better than most other macro brews from Holland. Taste is not at all bad. Goes down smoothly, especially after mowing Le Lawn!

No matter what, the swing top bottle is still fun. The ceramic cap and rubber gasket have worked, for there's plenty of carbonation. The bottle was green and it contained 15.2 fluid ounces. All of it fit nicely into a clear glass Imperial pint mug. It's color is brightly light copper-amber and it's rather translucent. The just off-white head is modest and seems enduring. At the cracking open of the beer cap, there was the musky or almost skunky aroma presented by many European lagers. But now, it mostly just malt. That makes sense, because the body is smoother than most Pilsners and lagers from that, or anyother continent. Unfortunately, that is the highlight, although there is enough bittering hops to balance the malt taste, especially during the finish. But, the malt also adds some caramel-like sweetness. That may not reach the point of being too sweet, but it does get close. The head wasn't all that enduring and the glass lacing was scant. If being judged as a general lager, it's pretty good. If it's compared to Pilsners, it won't score as highly. Still, this is an enjoyable beer to have and it tastes better when paired with certain foods, sharp cheese for example.
