Had in 2015 in Amsterdam.
MJ's "Guide" gave it 2.5 of 4 stars calling it "beautifully balanced and elegant, with a long finish."

Clear straw yellow colour with a medium sized head that quickly dissolves. Very fresh smell of grass, malt, citric and flowers. This continues in the taste, albeit a bit weaker. Malt tends to dominate a bit too much here. Due to the hops, the finish has some hints of grapefruit. Aftertaste has a nice bitterness and some resin flavour that lingers very well. Not something i would immediately buy again, but still quite good for a lager. Makes me wonder why macro breweries don't simply choose to brew their euro lagers more like this.

Poured from a 300 ml bottle. Colour is faded yellow, that of hay, totally transparent. Small quantity of bubbles at the bottom of the glass. One finger head that quickly dissolves but not entirely, thus still covering the beer's surface.
Smell of malt.Taste is bitter and leaving an equally if not more bitterness after the sip has gone down. Also, a bit metallic..
Thin bodied on palate and dry. Thankfully, not as watery as I was expecting from its colour. Medium carbonation.
Overall, not that different from your typical lager, except maybe from the stronger bitterness.

UP, Urtyp Pilsner, 'original type pilsner'. 30 cl bottle.

Looks straw colour, with thin head, good lacing. Good carbonation in a clear lager.
Smell of pilsner: malty and yeasty, with grassy hops. Also present is a more complex smell of citrus and garden herbs.
Taste similar, but a bit less pronounced.
Mouthfeel is pleasant smooth of bittersweetness. Balanced malty sweet and hoppy bitter.
The 5.5% abv is well integrated into the whole experience.

Recommended in the style of lager. Very nice overall.

Brown 33cl bottle reviewed during on of my 'Pilsner/Lager' tasting evenings. It had two months life on being poured into my stemmed 'La Chouffe' tulip.

Really pale, just like a Helles should be, medium sized white head.

Usual odourless lager/pilsner, gets my regular score of 3 for smell.

It may well be clean and clear, it is also almost tasteless, but strangely I enjoyed it.

Refreshing and drier than I normally prefer my lager based beers, this one however touched the spot as it were.
