Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Grain, grass. Malty pilsener with a good, dry hoppy bitterness.

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2015
Tasted as Brand Urtyp years ago, rating from old notes. Clear pale golden blonde, frothy snow white head, good fizz. Malt sweet character, grainy and a bit bready, bit metallic, with some grassy hops in the finish establishing a subtle bitterness. Not great and not on the same level as the best actual Bohemian Urtyps, but clearly of better and more ’pure’ quality than the regular Brand Pilsener and to be preferred over most other Dutch macro lagers.

ZodiacM (203) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2015
Gedronken uit een fles 33cl. Iets bitterder en hoppiger dan een gewone pils met een beetje grassige nasmaak. Lekker.

Erzengel (4745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2015

tricksta_p (1588) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2014
Aroma of malt, grain, hint of citrus, fresh hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a distinctively bitter finish. Quite nice Pilsener, a huge surprise.

gnoff (8119) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle from Jan Linders, Eindhoven, on December 13, 2014.
As I can remember the bottle only had a neck label, from which I wrote down "Brand Up Urtyp Pilsener" at 5.5% ABV, this entry looks to be that one though.
Clear straw yellow color, fluffy white head. Malty, grainy scent. Malty, a bit hoppy taste. Bitter aftertaste. Weak thin mouthfeel, low bitterness.

RW80 (1056) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance: Crystal clear light gold, with a white fluffy head of 2 fingers. Aroma: grass, grains, light herbal tones Taste: bready malts and a light but a bit dusty gass hop finish comming from the Saaz hops. Thin body, average carbonation. Refreshing good pilsner.Probably the best Pilsner you can find in a Dutch Supermarket.

kerenmk (2915) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks vipinvelp! Clear pale gold with white head. Almost no aroma, then after it sits in the glas old saaz hops. Very bitter, malty and a little grassy hops in the mouth. Light body, very carbonated, a little malty finish.

tomer (1919) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - SEP 2, 2014
At a tasting, thanks kerenmk, smallish head clear pale yellow colour, aroma of water, yeast and skunk, sweet strange fruity flavour with some yogurt, quite bland. Yuck.
