Very, very nice full bodied pilsener. The taste is hard to describe but it’s really authentic and hoppy. The commercial description says: ’strong taste, dry aftertaste’, and that’s right. I only drank this beer in bottles, I’d like to try it on tap.

Nice. Almost like a Belgian ale. Malty with a bit more hops than a standard pilsner. Decent.

Gangstergafje (152) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
Very nice beer. The beer is a pilsner for beer lovers. It is a crystal clear golden beer. The snow white foam disappears quickly, like on every pilsner. The beer is way more bitter than a regular pilsner. It also has a fruity tone. There is much more taste in this brew than in a regular pilsner, much mor sophisticated.

Alengrin (2982) - 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.

Gedronken uit een fles 33cl. Iets bitterder en hoppiger dan een gewone pils met een beetje grassige nasmaak. Lekker.

*Old rating, best before Sept.10. Bitter-crisp Pils. Smooth, hints of grain, nice bitter aftertaste. Nice.

tricksta_p (1750) - 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 (8203) - 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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks kerenmk. Pours yellow with a small head, aroma of grain, honey, corn, flavor is bitter with grain, sweet with herbs, light bodied.
