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.

Quite malty aroma. Clear gold to greenish yellow. Small but long head. Medium sweet, bitter finish. Not light body. Nice beer for a sunny afternoon.

One of the better attempts at urtyp pilsner. A good solid beer. Clear, yellow golden with a nice white head.

jmgreenuk (7079) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 2, 2016
Tap at De Paas, Den Haag. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, skunky Pilsner malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry yeast, light watery woody hop bitter palate and a lightly lingering bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. I didn’t expect much and I was not disappointed.

This is where Brand excels. I love this refreshing aromatic and hoppy lager. Backlog from 2014/06/19.

Deze pilsener heeft een volle geur. De smaak is ook rijk: duidelijk verschillende hopsoorten aanwezig met een bittertje en wat bloesem. De zoetheid slechts op de achtergrond. Lekker bier.

30cl Flasche. Strohgelbes Bier, fester Schaum. Hopfen und Getreide in der Nase. Leicht sauer. Nichts besonderes.

Zlotta (1490) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2015
0.3 l bottle from local Jumbo, bottled in July 2015. Clear, pale straw yellow with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, malty-herbal aroma of hay, sweet malts and hints of citrus. Sweetish, malty-herbal taste of hay, sweet malts and herbal hops, followed by a relatively long, medium bitter finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay, rather boring.

77ships (7251) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2015
250 ml. draft @ Bierspeciaalcafe De Paas. Post-Borefts 2015. Day 2. Pale industrial lager appearance with a white head. Nose is cold metallic, faint pepper & hop but mainly industrial grains. Taste is cold, iron, sweet corn, light flowers, bit watery, mineral. Body is grainy, mineral & watery. On par with slightly more palatable pale lagers.

Keg at de pass, den Haag. Crystal clear yellow with a lasting frothy white head. Aroma is nice fresh grains cereal, Nobel hop with a little faint citrus. Nice fresh grains. Flavour is composed of clean pils grains, cereal, spicy, light citrus hop, clean and easy drinking. Palate is crisp, highish carbonation, light bodied. Good stuff.
