Well made pilsener, quite Bavarian in character.

Between a pilsner and an IPA. Nice bitterness and also refreshing. Not superb, just good.

Strange, looks like a real Urtyp and has that malty, honey smell. Flavor is refreshing with a slight grapefruit aftertaste.
Beautiful white foamy head btw.

Solid, mouthfilling exercise by our friends in Zeeland. Lovely, nicely bitter, unfiltered pilsner. Weighing in at a pleasant 5% a perfect session beer. Often unfiltered pilsners of small breweries (ít IJ) can be a bit sour, but not here!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Pale golden color, slightly hazy. White head, leaving one ring of foam. Aromaís of grainy malt, grassy hops and some fruit. Slightly malty sweet flavor with beginning bitterness. Finishes with a nice bitterness. A bit less fruit and more malt would make this a perfect pilsner.
Earlier Rating: 9/28/2011 Total Score: 3.7
Tap @ In De Wildeman. Yellow, hazy color, white uneven head. Aromaís of grass, grain, fruit, malt, some bitterness. Flavor is ever so slightly sweet with upcoming bitterness. Finishes with a firm bitterness. If all pilsner beer were like this Iíd drink much more of it (so actually a good thing itís not).

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium vast white head, disappears slow and leaves a rocky white head on top of an almost clear yellow colored beer.
The aroma is so typical for itís style. If you would let me smell this and tell me itís German I would believe it too. You seriously donít smell itís from Emelisse. Some typical malt aromas, pils malts and some light herbs, grass/hay and hop tones.
Taste is smooth and even a bit floral in the beginning but looses the floral tones quickly and the malty herby tones take over with a nice medium growing bitterness.
The aftertaste is a pretty typical mix of herbs, malts, bitter and a hint of herby leaves.
Low to medium carbo, soft (light spicy, but disappears quick) mouthfeel, low to more medium body and a light creamy texture.
Nothing interesting to be honest. Though unfiltered this might be pretty good.
