Hazy gold beer, little white head. Sharp minerally crisp palate. Decent, but thin, pale malt with mild malt cream. Touch of bubblegum ester. Mild citric hop provides some balance. Finishes crisp and dry with a mild grapefruit linger. Refreshing but the bubblegum seems a little out of place.

33cl bottle. Pours light golden with medium white frothy head. The aroma is a blend of typical Pils plus an extra hoppy touch. Like it. Lots of yeasty notes regarding taste, sometimes looks even sour, pretty weird for a Pilsener. Subtle fruits and hints of spice. The palate tends to be lemony and sweet. Light body, good carbonation. Decent.

jmgreenuk (4992) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle from De Molen Beershop. Poured a slightly hazy straw colour with a bubbly white head. The aroma is yeasty with a few wheaty notes. The flavour is medium bitter, with some malt, zesty lemon and a hint of liqourice on the palate. Very low carbonation indeed. Rather tasty though and one of the best Pilsener’s i’ve had. It’s almost up there with the unfiltered Pilsener Urquell from the brewery in Plzen.

Xstream (173) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2013
De Molen seems to have a bit of an "all or nothing" trend with their (overkill?) range of beers. This one is a nothing to me. It doesn’t offer anything special or different. Well, it might be different, but not for the good. It has bit of a grassy base, with some lemon zesty sourness through it. It finishes medium dry with a slight saaz hop bitterness. All in all a useless beer really. But it’s drinkable.

Countbeer (4752) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized livey but vast white foamy head on top of a pudy yellow colored beer. Aromas of cardboard, old grains, old dirty malts, herbs and some clay. Flavours of malts, grains, floral, light spicy, herbs, bitters, cardboard, paper, grass, plants, dry and some yeast. Aftertaste is hoppy, grassy, floral, malty, grainy and light dry. Low carbo, watery creamy mouthfeel, low body and a creamy texture. Also had this from the tap, didn’t make notes, but it tasted better than from the bottle, obvious.

Draft @ De Molen. Aroma has a nice caramel backbone with a touch of herbal hops. Flavour is about the same, mostly malty goodness with a tad of saaz bitterness. Nice one.
