4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Bottle. Clear bright yellow color, small but stable white foam head. Aroma of fruit. Taste is bitter, spicey and fresh. LAsting texture, a beer to remember.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Clear, pale yellow colour. Smells a bit grainy, malty and grassy. Reminds me of Japanese pilsener somehow. Tastes grainy, malty and grassy also. Good carbo, medium body.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma a bit skunky. Nice appearance, golden (dim light so a bit of a guess) clear, white nice head. Taste malty and light bitter. Light body and mouth feel. Average carbonation. Bottle. Not worth a repeat.

(From Notes:) On tap. Golden blond color. White head, good lace. Aroma’s of malt (sweet) and mild aromatic hops. Flavor is lightly sweet & lightly bitter. Finishes mildly bitter. Clean tasting & flavorful pilsner, one of the better ones from NL.

Fles 33cl (blauw)
Kleur: Lichtgeel, met een mooie witte schuimkraag.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle. Gold-yellow colour, big stable white head. Aromas of malts and some fruitiness. Taste is very nice: bitternes and spicey. Very creamy texture.
Both presentation ( nice blue bottle) and taste make this beer one of the best pilseners.
