6.2% variant, mooi oranje met witte kraag
aroma: lekker fris hoppig met koriander, pilsmout en iets citrus
smaken: behoorlijke bitterheid, ietwat aardse ondertonen, gras, licht zoet, matige body wordt volledig overklast door de hoge hopbitterheid, licht zepig mondgevoel.

Iím sure this is the best pilsner I ever had. Itís hoppy and a bit fruity, almost like an American pale ale. Very nice.

Gloudy dark orangy yellow, medium white head. Big yeast, bread, grassy, cooked vegetables, funky, mushrooms, yoghurt, sour cream, lemon. OK taste, not too sweet and with a nice bitter finish, but some sour notes I donít like too much. Medium body and carbonation. Overall a bit too funky for me, but interesting and not unpleasant.

worldbeertaste (1551) - AUSTRIA - OCT 15, 2013
Lots of sediment at the bottom of the bottle and a careful pour is necessary. Hay amber with a thin, disappearing, white, non-lacy head. Lots of malt and caramel on the nose unlike any pils Iíve ever had. Toasted malt, grain and grass. Lots of sweetness. Medium oily frothy body with soft carbonation. Tastes of mild sweet malt with a medium bitter lasting finish. A clear fruity touch is noticeable and the overall presentation is kept mild by the yeast flavour. Leaves the mouth dry and sort of grassy.

Produced especially for Drinkerij tíBierhuys in Woerden this is an extra hopped Bohemian lager. Pours a dark colour, taste is of liqourice and aniseed, finish is spicy

Orange hazy body with a decent yellow-ish creamy head. Smells happy and citrus, while itís bitter and fruity in the mouth, with a bitter aftertaste. Could be a touch more sweet to balance better.

Bottle from the De Molen Beershop. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is very malty initially but died away fairly quickly. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with some malt, citrus fruit and a little yeast and liqourice on the palate and into the finish. If I had to drink a Pilsener, this would be one of the Pilsenerís iíd choose.

mattshiv (3) - - SEP 10, 2013 does not count
Bottled 18/07/2011. Pours hazy golden in colour, fizzy head subsides quickly. Sweet malt aromas and bready yeast in smell, little hops to the nose. more sweet malt on the tounge, light hop bitterness finishing stronger after swallowing. Not bad, probably coped a beating on the way over to oz. will try again.... next time.

MotherBrother (655) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2013
Pour clear golden, with a small fizzy whte head. Aroma of hay, citrus, old hops and slight grass. - this is to me actually a quite good pils. The taste has some faint sweet notes upfront, with some bitterness to it. Somewhat watery body, with a rather fizzy carbonation.

Golden colour. White, very long-lasting head which leaves a permanent head. Fresh aroma (citrus and honey). Bittersweet, hoppy. Medium carbonation. Not like other pilsners. Very good and easy to drink.
