veceo (1130) - CROATIA - APR 14, 2014
Clear amber color, big off white head. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Aroma is malts, citrusy hops, fruity. Light sweet, light bitter taste. Very refreshing. It’s like better and fancier version of Bavaria Holland.

vipinvelp (3541) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
Clear golden yellow with decent white lacing foam head. Aroma is bit weak, malty pilsener. Not too strong in taste, decent pilsener, but nothing special. Fresh enough though. (Oosterbeek 201402)

thanatosti (1416) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Drank straight from the bottle while bbq-ing the Christmas turkey. Golden colour with a white head. Grassy hoppy aroma and taste. Good fresh clean taste reminiscent of quality Czech pilseners.

Bosbouw (2509) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013
Typisch pils uiterlijk. Mooie gouden kleur. Piks geur, hop en iets citrus. Smaakt fris en iets bitter. Prima pils.

MADpalace (219) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2013
Gold yellow color with heavy white head. Smell of hops with flavors of caramel. Watery taste compared to the strong smell. Bitter after-taste. All together an expensive pilsener.

DSG (11057) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden with a white head. Grainy aroma with a bit of DMS, some honey notes and a hint of cardboard. Sweetish flavor, grainy and a bit honey-ish. Finishes drier with mild bitterness, slightly spicy. Light-bodied. Somewhat drinkable when served cold, but not a good Pilsener (or maybe it’s just the clear bottle).
