12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a crystal clear golden straw color. I love how translucent the body is, in particular. The head is a two finger white shade; retention isn’t the best, but there’s some really nice lacing left on the glass.
S: Aye, it’s a bit skunked (lol, green bottles), but it could have been worse. The notes of pale malts, faint sweetness, and zesty hops aren’t dulled in any significant capacity.
T: At first, some of the hop profile comes through with notes of grass and lemon zest, but the finish is pure, balanced, simple malt goodness. In particular, it has a nutty flavor that I really enjoy (that, and the diacetyl is kept in check). Personally, I want more hops; but I won’t complain about the balance this offers.
M: Not quite as bone dry as I like my lagers to be - nor is it too sweet. The texture does the best it can to provide good drinkability without significant hoppiness.
O: Green bottles mean I wouldn’t buy this one again. However, I would seek it out on tap. An under-appreciated lager unfortunately scorned both by its bottle color and by who makes it.
Van ’t vat. Helder blond bier met wit schuim. Geur: licht hoppige neus, wat 4VG. Smaak: zeer moutig en precies wat yoghurt en lactose. Zeer romig. Goede koolzuurprikkel. rosskyle (723) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Served on tap at Leib and Seele. Clear golden color with a white head. Minimal aroma and flavor. Easy drinking.

Poured from 500mL can (labelled P: 05/19/2016; E: 05/19/2017 so this one is slightly expired... should’ve checked when i bought it). Clear pale yellow with dissipating white head. Mild sweet malt, very subtle grassy hops. Not bad for a lager-type beer. Pershing (562) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Clear yellow with medium carbonation and malt in the aroma. Light body with some noble hop bitterness to match style. Clean refreshing finish. Above average central European lager. Nice to drink a beer from a brewery that doesn’t have to recreate a new beer style every six weeks to stay in business. PilsnerDoctor32 (263) - madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2017

And another Helles ... 0,5 l bottle. Claer golden witha one finger white head in the glass. Smells low grainy. Taste is mid grainy low but present bitterness. Nothing really wrong but boring to be honest. Turtles (2664) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2017
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear pale golden, lasting frothy white head, good lacing. Bread aroma with sweet malts and grains, hints of citrus. Smooth and clean feel, medium carbonation. Bread dough taste, buns, grains and grass. Mild bitter finish. bonev (780) - POLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Piwo klarowne w kolorze zlotym nalewa sie z dosc obfita biala drobnopecherzykowa piana ktora jednak bardzo szybko znika bez wiekszych sladow. W aromacie ziola i gotowane warzywa i pieczywo tostowe. W smaku polslodkie z wysokim wysyceniem i srednioniska goryczka. Smakuje platkami owsianymi i nic poza tym. Zwykle jasne piwo bez wiekszych wrazen. Tezminator (240) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2017
Aroma: faint herbs and corn. The taste is similar with some mild citrus and something honey-like. However, nice balance of hops and malt. Mild and interesting yeasty flavour. Very subtle and nice. I am not familiar with the style, but as a random beer from the (Swedish) bottle shop, this is one of the better ones that ticks quite a few boxes. beerstar88 (587) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2017
Goldgelb im Glas mit sehr kurzlebiger Blume. Feinmalziger Antrunk, mild würziger Körper, leichte Hopfennoten im Abgang.
