gulpener often promises a decent beer soft palate also provided this time for a lower fine hoppy aroma and taste good alternative to comercial pilsner, but tell me taste soft and bland but good lager hops

A: golden-tan, with haze. thin, but dense foam disspiates, but leaves a very thin cover on top and lacing on the glass
S: apricot, pear, orange, dankness
T: upfront hop bitterness (not too bad), herbal note from late/dry hopping, caramel backbone, which is in a good support for such hop-forward beer
M: some chewiness/sweetness from the caramel malt, but not too cloying. good balance with the bitterness.
O: solid west-coast IPA style in the Netherlands! This has become my go-to-beer for satisfying my humulone cravings in this country :)

This is an unfiltered, dry-hopped lager that pours slightly cloudy. It is amber colored with a thick, creamy head. The carbonation is modest. It has a nice hoppy nose but is soft and creamy on the palate. Nice hints of bitterness, but not enough to make me think of an IPL! The bitterness is softer and more hesitant than expected. Floral hops are evident, though. The slight bitterness and the floral hops linger nicely. Good malt as well. Beautiful lace is formed. It has a medium, creamy, body. As I empty the glass, the bitterness is catching up with me. It is delicious and easy to drink. I would seek this out again. BA lists as American Pale Lager which is more accurate than what the label suggests, viz., India Pale Lager.

Golden, slightly hazy (yeast).
Aroma: Flowery, a little bready, some diacetyl? Lacks fresh hoppy / lager aroma.
Taste: pleaseantly bitter, sweetish. Could be dryer to be more drinkable / refreshing.
Mouthfeel: a little sticky. Low carbonation.

Overall: pleasant beer, but there is plenty room for improvement.

This is a pretty good beer. Although this is a lager, they seem to have used the hops in just the right way, creating a bottom-fermenting india pale. Nice smell of flowers and citric which continues in the initial taste. Aftertaste is pleasantly bitter. Being a lager, any taste complexity due to esters is missing, but it's all about the hops in this brew.
