Château Neubourg has a noble bitterness and characterized as excellent. Lager with character, perfect for the connoisseur. And besides it is bottled in a beautiful, elegant bottle, which would fit with a fancy dinner. Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops.

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....

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 Birra dal buon corpo maltato con un ottimo bilanciamento tra amaro e dolce, personalmente l?ho bevuta anche dove la fanno alla spina ed č fenomenale.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2008 Bottled at home (classy blue bottle). Clear golden coloured, big lasting head, great looks! Hoppy nose, some malts, very "German". Hopbitter flavour, fruity notes. Pleasant bitter finish. Outstanding classic German pilsener from a Dutch brewery.

Poured from a 330 ml blue bottle. The bottle itself looks so nice, I don’t see beers in blue bottles that often. Its colour is deep golden yellow and it produces a one finger head which stays for relatively ong time. Strong smell of malts. Great, strong taste, as bitter as I like it! Medium thickness on the palate and quite carbonated.

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.

Tried this one for the first time after biking from Amsterdam to Hoorn in a snowstorm. I probably should’ve gotten something a bit darker and more alcoholic. This was ok in a pinch. Crisp, somewhat watery and dry.

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

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!
