A sweeter malt character than most pilseners with a cold, almost icey, but not watered down flavor.

Just a step better than Heineken

Well it certainly is light, but you still get a nice taste of hops with every swallow. Well worth the $4.50 I paid for a sixer of 16oz cans.

I was really happy with this beer. Light in all ways, with a clean hop character, nice and sharp. Tasted great on the beach. Kind of like a good version of Heineken. Yes I actually did bring a glass out onto the sand with me. It was great because everyone thought i was way over the top.

Virtually no head at all on this golden pilsner. I had this one in Amsterdam and it was great when fresh, I have had it in the US and it travels pretty well but was a little road weary.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2007 This beer is quite good, and I mean good. It isn’t the flashiest Pils around but it has good balance towards the malty side, dryish finish and bitterness. Not that hoppy but still a good balanced beer. One of the better beers from holland!

Papillon (380) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 500 mL Can. This one poured very lively and very frothy; it may not have had enough time to settle from a wipe-out I had on an ice patch on the way out from the store (a later visitation revealed a scanty white head that again left good lacing on the sides). Grainy aroma with a grassyness about it and a very faint note of grapefruit. The taste is light sweet malt with relatively little aftertaste followed by a clean finish. A very light bodied beer, the flavor is a bit shy but I wouldn’t call it watery by any means. Quite smooth in the mouth. I dare say the vast majority of beers of its price range are rotten beyond belief and not worth my precious time for posting beer reports here. That being said, Bavaria is my top choice in times of thin beer budgets. Bonus points for value.

From a can. At first the taste did not appeal to me but after a couple of seconds I started to like it. The only thing that I didn’t like was the colour which was too light.

Bottle. Bought in a Co-Operative shop in the isle of Man, July 2011. Pleasant aroma on opening.Clear with a small head and no lacing. Innofensive and bland Euro pils but probably the best beer on the island!
