3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden color with decent white head. Aroma is malt, hops, grass. Flavor is malt, hops and grass, starts sweet, then turns into a bit bitter. Interesting tingling in the aftertaste, almost like chilly peppers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle. Poured clear medium golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up honey and bright, toasted grains, with lesser bready notes.. lemon zest and grassy accents. The flavor found toasted bread and honey at the core, with earth, lemon zest, and grainy notes around.. more lightly-sour lemon and grainy notes over bread on the crisp finish. Lighter-bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. refreshing and nicely-balanced.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Accidentally bought this mediocre pils again and it is still mediocre. Second time around I notice a bunch more metallic character. I don’t think my original rating was far off though so I am just taking down Overall by a bit.
Original (Sept 2012): This is sweet and malty for a pils, I’d say. It’s a slightly cloudy orange w/ a thin white head. Malts are nutty and sugary. Hops are subdued and kind of grassy. This stuff is about OK. I am not in love w/ it.

Bottle from Borresteijn, thanks! Golden color. Tangerine in the aroma. Grassy flavor with tangerine and a soft hopbitterness. Seems somewhat oxidated.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle- Pours a golden color with a small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of grain, mild malt sweetness and a light trace of hops. Taste has an initial bitterness with a bit of malt sweetness and slightly grainy. Bitterness continues to a fairly clean finish. Light body, crisp and somewhat refreshing. Beer seem to have a gritty texture about it. Decent beer, but sort of a middle of the road beer for the style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear light gold with quickly leaving white head. The aroma has bready malt, some toast, hints of grass and spicy hops and an overall smoothness and richness to everything. It has a medium body that’s pretty ful for the style. It is quite smooth and slick with mild carbonation. The flavor starts drier than the aroma with toasted malt, crackers, earth, spice and dried grass. The finish has a bit of sulfur, minerals and a slightly sour lingering flavor. It is okay, but not how I generally like my pilsners.
