This Pilsener beer has been my favortie ever since. First it was called Up52 later just UP. Even though the bitter character of the beer has been diminished now that it is called UrTyp, itís become maybe even better than before. Frsh tasty hoppy and strong bitter. Nicely poored out in long glass stylish glass.

The Brand Brewery has change the name of the beer back to BRAND UP.

A nice bitter after taste.

This probably is the best Dutch pilsner. It is for sure the most hoppy one from the large dutch breweries.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2008 Rating reflects Urtyp-version. Brand Urtyp: Pale yellow, thin lacing. Hoppy aroma. Smooth hoppy and watery taste. The Dutch version of Pilsener Urquell. My absolute favourite everyday-pilsener. Brand UP: I guess changing of the name from Urtyp to UP was accompanied by a change in recipe. The beer seems more one-dimensional and more dry, closer to their regular pilsener. Such a shame. Rating 3.2.

Strong hop aroma, gives it a pleasant distinctive bitterness, though thereís a little sweet in there somewhere too. Definitely hard to surpass as far as pilsener goes, itís definitely one of my favourites.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2012 Golden orange pour, medium head.Aroma of some malts and lovely czech hops.Flavour consists of a rather bitter hoppiness, for a pilsener at least. Even the after taste hands out some hops. Awesome pilsener.
