On-tap at Oud Holland, Amsterdam, Netherlands

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of bready malts are present in the nose along with some faint hints of sweetness.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of bready malts along with some hints of sweetness and grain. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied but slightly watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but isn't very flavorful. Drinking this on-tap is nice because it tastes fresh and there is no green bottle skunk.

Poured from a 30cl bottle in a business lounge in Amsterdam. At first I assumed it the common Heineken beer but found that the label said Pilsener instead of Pale Lager. The appearance was crystal clear gold color and a reasonable level (maybe 3cm) of white foam. The aroma was malty side of neutral, not much of the skunk I get in Heineken in the US. The taste was same as the smell, slightly malty in a way I wouldn't call rich, less hoppy than the pilsners I've preferred. Give it a try if nothing else is available.
