DutchDrebus (4515) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2012 Not too special. It’s a bit like a regular lager/pilsner, only a bit stronger in taste and smell. Easy to drink.

Koelschtrinker (11987) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Fruchtiger Geruch mit süßlich-hopfiger Note. Malziger, sehr bitterer Antrunk. Zum Mittelteil kommt auch der Hopfen hervor, die starke Bitterkeit bbleibt bestehen. Die erschnupperte Süße geht darunter allerdings verloren, auch im Nachgeschmack, wo die starken Aromen anhalten. Der Hopfen ist noch lange erkennbar. Einprägsames Bier. Test vom 24.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,8,11,8,10 - 9,50

Tranquillity (1444) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2011
Draught. Not a bad beer, but is like a normal lager. Taste a bit foul. Very pale. Thin palate. Not my favorite.

MrHangover (3056) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2011
When draughted it gives a strong aroma, bit like a witbier. Lemon and fresh herbs. The taste is bitter and strong. This is a beer to get used to. Second one will taste better I guess."

Mpulese (13) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2011
Good bitter pilsner with lots of hops. Very pleasant mouthfeel, taste of mout, hop and aftertaste nicely bitter.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2011
On tap at Oosterling, Amsterdam on 7 April 2011. This is way netter than the "standard" Brand pilsner. There’s a touch of grassy hop here with a touch of bitterness (although probably less than in the old days). The malts are sweetish and a little bready. But it does have more weight on the palate and depth of flavour than the norm for a Dutch "pilsner" from the large brewers. Probably somewhat diminished from what t used to be but still a pleasantly drinkable and quite satisfying lager. Wish I’d had the opportunity to taste this before the Heineken takeover.

Martinus (3500) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2011
Yellow golden colour, white head, small and not really lasting. Aroma of hops, grass, hay, some floral aromas. Flavour is a bit sweet, very pleasant bitterness. Light style, thin texture but very enjoyable. Some spice tones. Well balanced. Dry finish. Very good for a pilsner. (From tap)

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 13, 2011
[3/8/11] Draught at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of some noble hops and grainy malt. Flavor starts with some sweetish malt and continues bitter with some slightly grassy hoppiness. Light to medium-bodied. An OK Pils.

EugeneStraver (119) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2011
Home 20110220 (30 cl bottle): I nice malty and fruity aroma (citrus) with hop bitterness. A light yellow colour and a thin white head. The taste is slightly weet with a malty body. It end in a dry hop bitterness. According to the type of beer is the body thin. Good example of a Urtyp beer.

Abio (1683) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 29, 2011
Pours out golden coloured with a medium head that should hold longer. The smell is sour-sweet fruits, malts, spices. The taste is also sour-sweet, malty, spiced, citrus, sugar. Full of taste, more then expected. But pilsener is not my thing...
