Batavi (171) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2015 Blik 33 cl. uitgeschonken in smal pilsener glas. Heldere goudgele pilsener, met hoge witte schuimkraag. Lichte aroma’s van gerstemout en kruidige hop. Mooi en typisch pilsener smaakpallet van licht zoete gerstemout en bittere kruidige hop. De afdronk is licht droog met een bittere finish. Sprankelende carbonatie, iets waterig mondgevoel. Een van de betere Nederlandse pilsener bieren, Brand lijkt op een Duitse pilsener door de meer uitgesproken hoptonen dan bij de andere Nederlandse pilsener bieren. Eenvoudige aroma’s en smaakpallet, maar goed in zijn stijl, een dorstlessende pilsener. De nieuwe vormgeving van de verpakking en etiket is fraai, met nadruk dat het de oudste brouwerij van Nederland is. Geeft een exclusievere uitstraling, ook bij de andere soorten bier van Brand.

Kleurplaatje (100) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2015
Pretty neutral in terms of aroma and taste. Bland malty aroma, not overly sweet and moderately bitter (aftertaste) in terms of taste. Yet there are quite clear metallic notes and there’s always something chemical-like that disturbs enourmously. Disappointing in terms of palate giving it a stale mouthfeel.

MelvinKalksma (145) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2015
Aroma: Lots of hop, grain and herbs, Appearance: Yellow/gold beer with a slight white head. Lots of bubbles thanks to the carbonation. Taste/Palate: Moderately sweet, slight bitterness.

massingasetta (424) - München, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2015
Decent Pilsener type beer from Holland that I tasted in Amsterdam. It has agood drinkability and general taste. A little more herbal taste could be provided, but a good thirst quencher.

vickey9 (759) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2015
Suprisingly drier and less sweet blond pilsener with a huge white head. Nose is prevalently malty. Carbon is average, body light & texture thin. Some bitterenes in taste. Biut palate is a simple theatre of a one actor. C@Asperen

6.11.2014. Quite basic, some pilsener style but not the most pleasant way. Stuffy, maybe starch.
