Good quality pilsener, one of the better known here in Holland. Natural brewing progress. Nice taste and flavor. Good aftertaste. I’d like to see this on tap at more cafes and bars over here instead of Amstel and Heineken.

Not bad for a pilsner. Nice grains and noticeable hops. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Simple but good.

30cl bottle. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small rather stable white head. NOSE: grains, little hoppy, watery. TASTE: grains, bitter, little dry. Not a bad pilsener!

Drinking from a 30cl bottle. A fruity aroma from the hop. The clear golden beer has a firm white head that lasts for some time. The beer is bitter for a pilsner, that gives it character. High carbonated.

A regular pilsener available in every supermarket in the Netherlands. A beer with more character than a heineken but not very spectacular. A slightly fruity aroma (probably from the hops). A nice and fresh taste (like a pilsener is supposed to) without a particular after taste. Very nice beer to drink a lot from (saturdaynight, after or during a football game). To be honest a bit boring, but it is still a pilsener so what to expect? A good pilsener.

One of the better "supermarket" beers/pils available in Holland. Also a bit pricier then a Heineken or Jupiler. Tastes as a heavier Pils not that bitter and has a tint of sweet taste after swallowing. Pours a clear gold beer.

bottle sample. Clear light golden color, small white head. Floral, clean malt aroma, some cardboard. Low bitterness, somewhat vegetal, corn, faint metallic notes, bread. Light body, easy to drink but so-so.

On tap at the tulip hotel riverside in Amsterdam. Pours golden with a frothy white head. Smell is malty. Taste is refreshing and a crisp malt.
