Alengrin (3884) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Standard pale lager Bavaria took over from De Kroon. Snow white, irregular, dense, sticky head, colour deep golden blonde, clear. Weak aroma with faint pale malts, straw and some herbal hoppiness. Light maltiness in the mouth, bit metallic, mineral water, brief but still quite pungent hop bitterness in the finish. Uninteresting but better than Bavaria’s own ’pils’ brand, that’s for sure.

Countbeer (5728) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle: Medium airy white head that disappears pretty quick, on top of a clear golden yellowish colored beer. Smell is oh so typical. Taste is oh so typical. Malts, herbs, grass, hops, bitter and a hint of honey. Nice but short bitter malty hoppy aftertaste. Medium carbo, medium low body, tingling mouthfeel and a watery texture.

Goudgele kleur met een witte schuimlaag. Fris bier met een lichte fruitsmaak en het is een beetje bitter.

Benzai (11852) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2011
The recently retired Kroon pilsener from my hometown brings some nice memories to my mind. Obviously it’s just a standard pilsener, but for once I’m being sentimental and therefore rating taste at an 8.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2012 Kroon used to be made in my hometown (Oirschot, Netherlands). Bavaria bought it and are now slowly pushing this off the market. Kroon is a decent pilsener and scores accordingly.

Martinus (4317) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2011
For some reason Kroon pils has been the long time local festival draught in the region where I grew up. Bit sweet, some light hops, not very special but very drinkable. (draught @ countless festivals, fairs and markets)

Svesse (7502) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2009
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 3 Aug 2009) Golden yellow colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with notes of grass, hay and hints of tropical fruit. Malty, bready taste with grass and a touch of tropical fruit. Mild bitterness in the finish. Below medium body, balanced sweetness. Middle-of-the-road-ish, but drinkable.
