3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
No fizz, no fuss. As if you poured whisky and not beer. A very relaxing attitude. Almost no head. You get pure beer. It has a very refined, round taste. Fits into one’s throat very smoothly. You get a slight bitter taste afterwards, a rather plesant one, like that of Efes Pilsener.
This is a beer you would drink and enjoy like whisky and not beer. Not something you would drink more than 2 a day.
Something to drink as novelty, or with its stylish blue bottle, to impress one’s girlfriend. Otherwise, it may not justify itsef at three times the price of Heineken.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought a bottle at Bert’s Bierhuis. Aroma of blossom, grass, malt and some fruits. Has a yellow/gold color and a white head, well carbonated. Taste of blossom, fruits and barley. Taste is sweet and a little sour and has a long bitter afterdrunk, where you can taste the hop very well. An excellent pilsner from Holland, but not as good as Pilsner Urquell.

Clear golden colour, very allive, medium foamy head, malt hay smell, a bit sweet, a bit like standing at the brewery. Medium carbonation, pleasant medium bitter, a bit sweet malty, a bit sticky. A luxurious pils type

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very full flavoured for a lager/pilsener. Good balance of sweet and bitter with a distinct fruity flavour and bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap@Tefaf. One finger foam. Faint malty chili notes. Dry pilsner like. Nothing special. Drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Big Saaz nose, some honey, and some metallic stuff, too. Clear pale sraw. Light malty sweet initial / Saaz emerges, but in a crude manner, a bit prickly / finish is balanced, with a lightly sweet aftertaste.. Thin-medium body. Not as clean as it should be. Hopping is there, for sure, but it’s rough and harsh. Pretty cobalt bottle, though.
