Lichtgeel, mooi plakkerige kraag. Ruikt fris en bitter. Smaakt redelijk vol en lekker hoppig. Goede pils.

Gedronken op KBC Den Bosch 2011, het is een standaard pilsje als anderen, verder niet heel speciaal

30 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra. Pale yellow with a white head. Hoppy, malty slightly grainy aroma. Good strong bitter hop taste. Lively carbonation. One of the best dutch pilseners.

GSAP (719) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2012
Aroma van hooi en metaal. Smaak is gras-achtig, met een lange krachtige bitternoot. Binnen de pilsners één van de meest verfrissende en fijnste.

erickok (5629) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2012
Yellow fizzy, glowing body with nice lasting frothy head. Very decent light malt aroma with enough hop backup. Some summery yeast hints. Easy drinkable with lager, but with surprisingly good bitter end. Still somewhat grainy. Much better than the normal Brand pilsner or the other big Dutch pilsner brands. (33cl bottle)

Jur (468) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2012
UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Brand UP might be the best mainstream beer you can find on tap in non-beerknurd bars. This Urtyp Pilsner (UP!) has been brewed since 1952 in Wylre, Limburg. After takeover by Heineken it was temporarily sweetened, but this ill-fated decision has fortunately been reversed. It is a very clean, crisp German style pilsner with a bit fuller body and bitter aftertaste. These qualities and 5% ABV make it a very pleasant session beer. It is being marketed as the "classy" beer now by Heineken, so the places who have it on draught are the better bars and restaurants.
