Aroma is vers brood en abrikozenjam. Smaak is wat waterig met ferme bitters, die wat worstelend ten ondergaan. Slap kraagje.

Bottle shared from Deanso. Pours clear golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Flavour is good for the style, nice malt and light hops, medium sweet and light bitter. Body is light to light medium and carbonation is moderate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden body, firm white soapy head. Very pleasant rich aroma of classic style hops. Crisp and fresh. Smooth drinkable, quite bitter but with a solid own character. Good job for a pilsner. Very much dislike the bottle so I was prejudiced but it’s actually quite nice. Well brewed. (33cl bottle, blue..., fairly cheap)

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Edel Pilsener from Dutch Southern Limburg. Almost a German taste to it.
It is very clean and clear. A bit malty, but a very nice session brew.

High quality pilsener, i was really surprised by this one.
I tour a lot through many countries and have the chance to drink a lot of different beers. This one is one of the best i had in many years.
The beer is served in a deluxe blue bottle with some nice embossing, when opening the bottle a great authentic smell is flowing through your nose.
The smell is as rich as the beer tastes, full and spicy with a lot of aroma and natural refreshment. My new favorite beer....

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tall, thin blue bottle (33cl), nicely packaged beer, obtained in Holland during a resent beer buying mission.
Third beer in my 23 Oct 2010 ’Pilsner/Lager reviewing evening’. The brew had a best before date of Apr 2011 and poured into a ’Veltins’ stemmed tulip.
Score of three for a non-smelling lager/pilsner, the beer however looked fine a typical Czech Pilsner even down to the way the head lost its depth straight away.
Crisp, dry and refreshing, again just like a true Czech Pilsner.
Mr average to be honest, in almost all aspects.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
11.2 ounce bottle - $7.00 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.
Appearance: Good heavens, is all I can grumble when the bottle is set before me. Pours out a very slightly hazed gold body with a small, hasty, white head.
Smell: Grainy-scented malts, a little sweetish in the nose with a thin hint of stale dried herbs. Rather unappealing.
Taste: Sweetish pils with a hard-hearted graininess. Modestly bitter hops giving a taste of banal dried herb. Then, a little bit of astringency catches your attention just as the sweetness kicks back into the gear in time for the less-than-crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Bleh, what a complete waste of seven bucks! If only Gulpener had put half as much time and effort into the beer as they did the embossed blue bottle.
