From a 300ml bottle into a Hertog Jan pilsner glass.

A: Pours a pale, golden yellow. Frothy head of a couple of fingers, which stays for a minute or two. Leaves some lacing. The head retention is minimal, but it's there. No visible activity.
S: Some sweet maltiness and a bit of grassy hops.
T: On par for a standard (euro) lager. Some sweet malt flavor, but not much. There is a VERY light bitter aftertaste.
M: Drinks smoothly, is refreshing and crisp. Clean finish. Carbonation is within range for style..

Overall: Maybe a little sweet, but more pleasant to drink than other mainstream beers avaiable in The Netherlands. A solid standard lager that is easy to drink...a lot of.

I think I am going to rate this a little better than most people did. I am not saying that it wasn’t a little plain but this style is supposed to be a little bit neutral. It poured golden and transparent with not much carbonation to the body. The head was minimal but the lace was not bad. The aroma was more malty than hoppy but both were pretty mild. The flavor was a little bit grassy like a pils with some hop tones. The mouthfeel was medium and a little slick.

Oh dear: 30cl bottle, best before Apr 2013. Brought back from Holland to drink at leasure: poured into a Duvel glass on 10 Dec 2012.

Bland and boring: looked your typical Pilsner/lager but lacked the sparkle or crispness to carry off the appearance. Odourless and almost tasteless: a slight hop bitterness towards the end of each gulp but nothing at all to get excited about. It may well quench your thirst after cutting the grass or hedge but for the beer hunter, forget it!
