JanEric (1226) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2009
Tap. Nice pilsner, slightly more bitter than a lot of other, weak, pils. Not my favourite, Grolsch, but it is close to it. Refreshing.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2008
On Tap. Pours a clear golden colour with a small size head and good carbonation. Smell is very pleasant, great hops and malts there, with good bitterness. I think the taste is a bit too much of the previous, as it’s a nice beer, but not something to really enjoy.

Best Dutch pilsener period. Well balance flavours, smooth aroma yet not as shallow as most Dutch pilseners.
