Coming from the Southern part of the Netherlands I’m obligated to say that I love this beer :) Honest rating: just another mass produced pilsener. Nothing wrong, nothing spectacular.

Bottle. [thank you Skortila/caesar]
Pours clear golden with a medium, fizzy, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is grainy sweet, some lemony notes and green apples. Medium carbonation, rather thin and watery. Still, it maintains a fair dryness. Flavour, though, is mostly non-existent. Sweet and malty with a slight underlying grassy hops base. Still, it’s better than it’s 2.19 suggests.

can. also had several samples of draft, whiere it was very good. aroma yeast, sweetish. appears lear yellow, smal white head. flavor is sweet and sawdust. draft it was on the sweet and sawdusty end as a good pilsener is, but could lack some bitterness. still very tasty draft, at about 2.8 or so imo.

madsberg (11283) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2002
Light golden colour. A little hoppy in the aroma. Is quite dry in the flavour and has some sweetness. Finish is without the bitterness, I prefer. Not a bad pilsener though

Dogbrick (10870) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Pours a clear pale yellow color with a medium bone white head without much retention. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is grainy malt with a bit of hops. Light-bodied and clean mouthfeel with mild malt and hops flavors. The finish is sweet malt and fruit with a touch of hops on the back end. Overall this beer is a straightforward Pils/Lager that is instantly forgotten.

This beer is fairly decent. Not overly hoppy, and has some decent malt notes. Caronation is nice.
