SimplySike (1250) - The Hague, - APR 7, 2013
30cl. Bottle. Pours clear yellow with white head. Aroma little citrus, lots of malts. Taste sweet. Mouthfeel thin. It’s disappointing, grolsch came with a new lentebock last year and instead of making it better it’s still not that good. :(

TrefwoordPunk (850) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2015
Can 50 cl. Pours a clear yellow to golden with a medium white head and an aroma of banana, herbs and malts. The taste is medium to heavily sweet and there’s a short to medium bitter finish. Drinkable beer and pretty nice, but nothing special.

Tallboy can at Schipol. Malty nose, honey, biscuits, some citrus. Drcent malt flavor, bread, not near as sweet and gross as the old recipe. Can taste the Citra hops. Prickly, lightly bitter finish. Not bad.

Can at home. Golden pilsener color. Nose mostly grain. Mouthfeel thin, watery. Taste some citrus, hops, but mostly bland pilsener. Aftertaste fairly pleasant with some citrus and grains. Nothing outstanding here, but not bad.

MelvinKalksma (308) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2015
Aroma: Normal beer with a slight flavour of citrus. Appearance: Golden beer. Taste/Palate: No palate at all, taste is basically a standard pilsener with citrus. Overall: A really refreshing beer. Don’t let the score fool you; just like a regular pilsener the quality is not that good, but if it’s hot and this beer is cold.. It’s insanely nice.

Gangstergafje (369) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2015 The beer hAs a perfect clear rather dark golden yellow color. The foam disappears quickly. There is a nice bitterness, compensated with a nice fresh sweetness. The smell has a sweet fruity sensation and a hoppy taste. I smell citrus, very nice. The taste has some nice alcohol flavored. There is also a rich sweet sunny fruity sweetness. I also taste some white raisins. All very nice. This beer is perfect for the spring. Really good.

300ml Flasche. Klar und golden. Kleine Schaumkrone. Leichtes Hopfenaroma. Insgesamt wässrig, aber gut trinkbar.
