Hazy golden colour with a white head. Malty aroma with a nice sweetness and a balanced hoppyness. Flavor starts malty then becomes bitter and dry.

this place is the greatest place in amsterdam....off the beaten path but gives you ’real feel’ for lacal life....and beer brewed in a windmill, how could you go wrong. all their beers have the same yeasty belgium quality to them...this didnt remind me of a pilsener at all had a golden nice thick thatch top head. coriander and citrus notes. good and refreshing. some off characteristics as well.

On tap at the brewery in Amsterdam. Cardboard/glue aroma. Slightly hazey appearance, with a persistent thin head and thick lacing. Flavoursome Pilsener, with a real herby, medicinal quality - faintly reminiscent of chloraseptic throatspray. Solid in the mouth. Despite the above description, I enjoyed this - quite engaging and still refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Unpilsenerlike large head, that stays for a while. Starts very common but ends up into a sour-bitter finish. Excellent pilsener, pretty fullbodied.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Microbar, Battersea. I agree with duff, definitely Belgian style yeastiness/spiciness detected. Nice hop bitterness. Slight sour notes.

Bottle. A pils with a distincive Belgian sort of flavour (yes, i know its from Holland), more like a Belgian ale. Quite yeasty/spicy, with some citric bitterness, on the drier side of the scale, slightly sour and acidic.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy dirty straw color with a smaller white head. Dry hay and mild tobacco aromas. Flavors of weeds, pale malt and sourdough. Interesting brew in that you you ponder why you are drinking it, but it calls you back to try it again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold. Ludicrously massive head for something labeled a pils. Nose is yeasty and lemony, a mite funky, possibly a bit of spice. Good yeasty character up front, some sweet malts, a bit of berry fruitiness. Good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Evening Star Brighton. A sweet aroma to this hazy golden lager. The taste is typically lagerish only with much more character and cleanliness than most. refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy blonde color, small head. Yeasty, hay aroma. Slightly sour, hoppy pilsner flavor with some yeast. Quite carbonated (but soft), oily palate. Easily drinkable, smooth and refreshing pils (or is it really a blonde ale?).
