11.2 ounce bottle - $7.00 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.

Appearance: Good heavens, is all I can grumble when the bottle is set before me. Pours out a very slightly hazed gold body with a small, hasty, white head.

Smell: Grainy-scented malts, a little sweetish in the nose with a thin hint of stale dried herbs. Rather unappealing.

Taste: Sweetish pils with a hard-hearted graininess. Modestly bitter hops giving a taste of banal dried herb. Then, a little bit of astringency catches your attention just as the sweetness kicks back into the gear in time for the less-than-crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Bleh, what a complete waste of seven bucks! If only Gulpener had put half as much time and effort into the beer as they did the embossed blue bottle.

Tall, thin blue bottle (33cl), nicely packaged beer, obtained in Holland during a resent beer buying mission.

Third beer in my 23 Oct 2010 'Pilsner/Lager reviewing evening'. The brew had a best before date of Apr 2011 and poured into a 'Veltins' stemmed tulip.

Score of three for a non-smelling lager/pilsner, the beer however looked fine a typical Czech Pilsner even down to the way the head lost its depth straight away.

Crisp, dry and refreshing, again just like a true Czech Pilsner.

Mr average to be honest, in almost all aspects.

This beer pours a clear golden color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes slowly into decent lacing. The aroma bready malt, hints of light caramel, and soft spicy noble hops. The taste is like the aroma. It is well balance with a little more hops the malt, but that is what makes a nice Pilsener. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied, with lively carbonation. Overall, this is a nice Pilsener that I could easily drink again.

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!

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.

10.1 fl oz bottle copped from New Beer Distributors in Manhattan...
Appearance: Light, hazy orange hue with a minimal head and hardly any lacing...
Smell: Oranges, tangerines, fruity, floral aroma...
Taste: Heavy on the nectarines, slight hints of fruits, oranges, and watermelon... Sweet finish...
Light-bodied...
Easily drinkable...
Unremarkable, but refreshing nonetheless...

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.

BB 11-05. No overwelming head and golden colored beer make this brew avarage in appearance. Malty nose with litle bit citrussy like hops. Far from fresh maltyness giving lots of paper. Taste is also quiet common with maybe litle more malts but avarage bitterness and papertaste make this one just an avarage brew certainly not worth the extra money IMO. Far from fresh mouthfeel either. Drinkability is about the same a common dutch lager.

Gulpener Neubourg Pilsner pours about a finger
of foam over a clear golden brew. Carbonation starts
off brisk, but falls off to slow and steady. The nose is
not bad- slightly fruity light barley malt. The flavor is
a bit tart up front, flowery, slightly vinous even, with a mild
peppery herbal hop off the back. Mouthfeel is semi-dry, light,
and crisp. There's a bit of grassy-ness in the aftertaste, and a lot
of lacing left in the glass. The label states that it's brewed from
"ecologically grown summer barley, hops grown from the
brewery's own fields". Ecological it might be, but not to the point
where it gets the USDA organic logo on the label. Not a bad little
pilsner, though. Well worth a try.
