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....

SimplySike (688) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2012
Blue bottle 33cl. Poors yellow with white head. Aroma malts, grass, some sweets. Taste Bittersweet. Bitter in the after taste. Good pils.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
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.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2012
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.

vipinvelp (1885) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2012
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.

DutchDrebus (3430) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2012
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.

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.

PotjeBier (1419) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2012
(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. Geur: Fruit, mout, beetje muffig. Smaak: Licht zurig, met een bittere nasmaak. Redelijk veel smaak voor een pilsener, maar niet lekker.

bierbeek (97) - Beek, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2011
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.
