Had on-tap at a local pub in Maastricht.

It has a straw yellow color with a nice head & carbonation. The head did not last long as the bartender whacked most of it off before serving it. The aroma was a generic beer not quite stale. The taste was crisp with a slight bitterness. It has a fairly light body and is somewhat refreshing. This is a typical dutch brew.

Brown 33cl bottle obtained while staying in the town where it is brewed. Best before 2nd March 2011, reviewed during a 'Lager/Pilsner reviewing evening' 23 Oct 2010.

Poured into a 'Hoegaarden Grand Cru' stemmed tulip. Typical Euro Pilsner look, golden, clear, bright and clean. Snowy white head on top, which produced some good lacing.

Hay, straw aroma, not the best 'non-smelling' pilsner/lager my nose has tested!

Dry, almost hoppy feel to the taste, refreshing and a bit different to most of the major players in Holland (Grolsch, Heineken, Bavaria, etc).

I liked it.

Pours a clear golden color with a crisp white head.
Smell is faint of corn.
Taste is very similar to any other euro pale lager.
I keep trying different pils hoping that one will be slightly more malty of hoppy, or made with better ingredients. There there could theoretically be a good pils out there, but I haven't found it yet.

This isn't to bad a beer but it's just like all the other piss beer nothing new.

while waiting for my train to schiphol airport I went to a pub in the centraal station of Amsterdam. Therer LEEUW was served on draught. Nice foam head,pleasant bitterness. Unfortunately time allowed me to have only one pint although a second "lion" would surely tasted good. One of the better dutch beers.

Coming in a slim 300ml green bottle, BB 02/12/08, served chilled in Rodenbach's slim goblet.

A: pours a clear straw hue with very mild carbonation and a thin but ever-lasting white fluffy head.
S: sweet citrus comes with a focused aroma of the sourness typical for a lager bier; relatively mild, even negligible, for the hop aroma if it purports to be a pilsener, and malts are also subdued. Overall, very standard and clean, offering hardly anything on the nose.
T: a quite clean palate of mild grainy malts is ensued by an intensifying flow of dry and neutral-flavoured bitterness; turning crisp with a dry-ish and faint herbal edge in the end... Very bland and simplistic overall, albeit w/o the cheap taste of adjuncts or other crap ingredients.
M&D: refreshing enough, full of light microscopic carbonation to sooth the palate, plus being quite clean. Verdict? A decently-made bland lager this is - but certainly not a pilsener at its most attractive hop-bitter sense, and certainly not something I'd revisit.
