Met trots presenteert de Brand Bierbrouwerij het frisse pils van hobbybrouwer Marc Vriens. Tijdelijk verkrijgbaar in zeer beperkte oplage. Een pils van constante kwaliteit brouwen is een uitdaging. Hobbybrouwer Marc Vriens ging die uitdaging aan en won de Brand Pilsbrouwwedstrijd. Samen met de brouwmeesters van Brand heeft hij zijn pils bij ons gebrouwen. "Geniet van mijn pils! Het heeft die typische hoppige neus en frisbittere smaak door de juiste balans van aroma- en bitterhop. Door het gebruik van pure zomermout heeft het een mooie goudgele kleur zoals een pils betaamt. Proost!" Marc Vriens, hobbybrouwer.

This was brewed by the winner of the pilsener brewing contest, allowed to use the facilities of Brand to make enough beer for 50.000 crates. Poured into a footed pilsener glass. Colour is golden yellow, with a constant stream of bubbles in the body and a soapy, thick white head of two full fingers, with excellent retention. I have it now about ten minutes in the glass and there is still about half a centimeter of foam covering the beer. Very good. The smell on the other hand is not anything extraordinary, and it could use some more hops for the aroma. Neertheless, above the average pilseners. The taste is where this one shines, hoppy bitterness straight from the beginning to the very finish, and a long one too. Medium to thick crisp body and just about the right carbonation. Overall, a great pilsener, maybe Brand could learn a thing or two from this one.

Goudkleurig, pilskleur, witte schuimkraag, maar snel weg, ruikt naar banaan, zoet, bitter, veel koolzuur daardoor niet minder lekker, goede pilsn

rikstar (1969) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 Thuis uit fles, lekker stevig pils, met naar Nederlandse maatstaven ongekend veel smaak, schuim was wel snel weg. Doet denken aan Duits pilsner, het hopbitter is duidelijk aanwezig, maar overheerst niet. Mooie bittere afdronk. Lekkerste pils van Nederlandse bodem dat ik heb beproeft.

bierkoning (11932) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden color. Soft grassy aroma with hints of malt, Fairly dry pilsener with a soft but persistant grassy hopbitterness and some distant bready notes. Well balanced. Perfectly acceptable.
