3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color with a white head. Medium carbonation. With the first sniff you immediately detect the typical czech pilsener aroma. A sweet taste balacned with a nice hoppy aftertaste. Good pilsener.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml blue bottle bought at ParkNShop Superstore in Fanling.
Clear dull golden yellow colour; Razor thin head and soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Very small sticky lacing and quite fizzy carbonation; Quite pungent smell of malt, with fairly light initial skink (totally gone in 1 minute), bread, dough, honey, very light floral, lemon and grass; Light sweet taste of fairly light malt, with light honey, light flower, bread, light dough, dry biscuits, lime, light earth, quite strong bitter hops and sharp grass; Mid to light body, dry and crisp palate; Mouth feel is Czech Pils with strong honey and floral hoppy characters. Dry lean body, Malty on a slightly light side, good light honey with molasses undertone, nice light flower petals. Good bread and biscuits. Light earthy hops came through as beer warms. Nice!... Hoppiness really flourish: neat floral, nectar, lemon and grass aroma, good flower and lime in taste. Moderately strong bitter hops close to German Pils for a nice, lasting bitter finish; Dry after taste. Crisp and bitter to mouth.
Comments: After Pilsner Urquell, this is the next best Czech Pils available in HK supermarkets, and it is made in Netherlands. How about that? Slightly thin malt aside, the flowery and earthy Noble hops really make this a very enjoyable session Pilsener. I’ll stock this one for watching World Cup!

Gulpener Chateau Neubourg has a thin, off-white head, a golden, bubbly, somewhat murky appearance, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is strong and pungent- strong barley malt, a touch of hop resin, and biscuit. Taste is similarly strong, with a noticeable sugary sweetness and a grassy hop bitterness for balancing. Mouthfeel is medium, and Gulpener Chateau Neubourg finishes mostly dry, filling, and good. Check it out! RJT

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells and taste like a normal pilsner. It has some more body then a regular pilsner so it is some better.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light beer with a subtle class. Not bad at all if you like pilsner. Nice botle also, although I don’t prefer my beer in blue bottles. In comparison to other good pilsners I find it on the expensive side.

On tap at Arendsnest. Pours a crisp, clear pale gold with a fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of straw and hay notes with a touch of grass backing. Flavor is similar with a bit more grass but mainly hay and straw.
