A little bit more malty than the typical lager. Pale yellow with nice foam top.

I think this beer is pretty good. Compared to the more sophisticated Belgian styles, this one appeals to my tastes much more.

Out of the can and into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a light golden yellow color with a two and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing trickles down the sides of the glass. The smell was kind of grassy and hay-like. Light spritzy citrus with a light peppery spice came through. The taste was mildly grassy sweet with a crisp contour rolling over my taste buds. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body. There’s a great sessionability about it as a crisp refreshing fulfilling quality rolls over my tongue. Overall, for the style, this is pretty good for me it’s good and I would have it again.

Can. Golden color with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is weak watery with a slight grass smell. Taste is also weak and watery. Not a very good beer.

Alhoewel het maar een pils is, kan er bij pils ook een goede smaak aan zitten. Hier echter niet, echt een slechte pils

330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, apple, pear, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of pale malt, hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a clean finish with no lingering flavors. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and clean mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good pilsner. Well balanced malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors with solid robustness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A bit bland on character, but not watery. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

TXBadger (1398) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a clear bright yellow/golden color with white head. Malt forward on the nose, a little cereal like, and a bit of citrus; follows onto the palate. Finishes with malt like aftertaste.

Davhgbrew (942) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Very clear yellow. Whispy white head. Grainy aroma of corn and malt. Body is medium, Skunky, slightly yeasty sweet and estery for a pils, but I guess it’s a belgian pils. Carbonation is moderately low and flavor corny adjunct like. Lingering finish and aftertaste is mildy sweet and unpleasant.

foyle (238) - Wyoming, USA - APR 13, 2014
Poured from 11.2 oz can into pint glass. Appearance: a frothy white head recedes with moderate lacing. Color is mostly clear light golden with plenty of sediment in suspension. Light streaming carbonation. Aroma: grassy hops, yeast rolls, barley malt. Mouthfeel: light and a bit oily with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: biscuit, fruit, raisin, white bread, grassiness and bitter herbs. Overall: very nice, would be glad to try this one again.
