22 Oct 2012 saw me, my wife and 26 other members of the CAMRA Investors club have a wonderful afternoon as guests of the brewery: after a film show and giuded tour of the brewery we adjourned to the tasting celler bar where we were given seven different brews to taste: I had plenty of each!

This was the most tasteless of the beers offered: I had to have two glasses (on-tap), just be sure it was as bland as I thought it was after the first glass.

Looked like Mr Average Pilsner, golden, clear and of course it was as fresh as you are going to get: but it was just a wet fizzy drink that a few hops and a hand full of malts had been dropped in. Very disappointing, especially as we were being looked after so well. I've been kind with my scoring!

There are other products from this brewery that are among my favs, but this stuff is just undrinkable.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short bright white head that quickly died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of Pilsener malts are present in the nose along with notes of floral hops.
T: The taste has flavors of bready malts along with hints of adjuncts and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is clean and goes down very easy. It isn't a bad representation of the style.

Another easily obtainable beer in the Dutch supermarkets, that I haven't reviewed.
Bottle of 300 ml of course.
The colour is golden yelo, with a nice creamy two finger white head, with very good retention. Average activity in the glass. The head disappears leaving light lacing oaound the glass.
Smell is almost non-existent, very faint malts.
Taste is not bad, quite on the hoppy side.Aftertaste is also bitter.
Average thinness on the body, slight carbonation.
Overall, this is one of your better options in a dutch supermarket, if you want to stay away from Heineken and Grolsch.
