A very light bright golden color with a fine bubbly foam collar, scented soft bitter, sweet and a touch of acid, smooth malt, a smooth & subtle light blonde, pilsener, indeed Dutch best in the category so far

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy golden color with a small off-white head. The aroma is heavy on malt with some hops, but smelled very stale. The taste follows the nose. Unfortunately, this beer did not taste very good at all.

33cl blue bottle, shared at home. Crisp and refreshing, a bit above most commercial lagers from the supermarket, but other than that nothign special.

Straw coloured pilsner. Thick frothy head. Lots of rising bubbles.
Spicy and aromatic odour. Looks and smells the part.
Sweet malt initially but then ends with a grainy and rather harsh twang.
Better than your standard supermarket lager.

I know it's a gimmick, but i love the blue bottle with relief. Very stylish. And it's not just a pretty package: Strong smell of resin, grass and biscuit, which continues in the taste, although the sweetness gets a bit too much for me after a while. Nice resin bitterness in the aftertaste. A pretty beer that delivers.

Gulpener Chateau Neubourg has a thin, off-white head, a golden, bubbly, somewhat murky appearance, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is strong and pungent- strong barley malt, a touch of hop resin, and biscuit. Taste is similarly strong, with a noticeable sugary sweetness and a grassy hop bitterness for balancing. Mouthfeel is medium, and Gulpener Chateau Neubourg finishes mostly dry, filling, and good. Check it out!
