UPDATED: MAY 22, 2017 Bottle. Color: Clear golden, on the dark side. Nice dense white head. Lots of tiny bubbles. Taste: Fruity, mix of medium sweet malt and floral hopbitterness. Notes of bread. Finish is tending to the bitter side, with some sweet notes. Medium body and light carbonation. When the beer gets warmer its tending more to the malty side. Overall a decent pilsener.

Sampled as Swinckels Superior Pilsner. Huge, dense light-yellowish head, receding over clear yellow golden beer, lazily carbonated. Grains, diary, bit herb, but also somewhat dusty. Dry grainy flavour, again, quite herb. USA hops dont make much difference, cant be a lot of them in... Light body, bit gristslick, not much carbonation. Decent Pilsner, strictly nothing more.

bonkiedeaap (737) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2017
Bottle from a supermarket in Leerdam, The Netherlands. The beer is clear golden colored and has a small white head, with oke carbonation. The aroma is malty and light fruity, with notes of malts, grass, grains, flowers and a little fruitiness of citrus. The taste is light sweet and malty, and in the background a nice bitterness with floral, grass and hoppy notes. The finish is light bitter and light dry. Ok pilsner, but way to expensive.

T: malty, light lemon, grassy, bread, hint of caramel, medium body, medium carbonation, almost good, drinkable Pilsener, bottle changed from transparent to dark brown so may be this helps a little to beer quality, 0,33l bottle from Jumbo in Marknesse in Netherland.

Lekkere pilsener. Mooie zuivere smaak met een mooie laag hop. Licht bitter en fris. Enige fruittonen. Goede carbonatie.

Ik vind deze pils net iets beter smaken dan de gemiddelde. Hij lijkt niet op Bavaria. Het gebruikte bronwater is goed te proeven.

Prima pilsner. Het bier is sinds kort in de retail verkrijgbaar. Geen idee of het marketingverhaal erachter op waarheid of op fantasie gebaseerd is, maar Swinckels drinkt lekker weg, en is goed op smaak voor een pilsner. Is zeker voor herhaling vatbaar.

Gangstergafje (1039) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2017
The beer looks nice. It looks like a nice premium pilsener. The color of the beer is a very golden yellow. It is very bright. A lot of nice bubbles are rising towards the top. The beer is crystal clear. On top of the beer an nice layer of rough white foam is formed. Good pilsener look, better than most pilseners. The smell is good. It is not that very special, just a good pilsener. A nice malty base, some refreshing bitter hops. The hops are quite nice. This beer gives a bit more luxurious sensation than most big brewery pilseners. The taste of the beer is the same. Quite tasty for a pilsener. Compared to something like Heineken this is way better. Nice malt base, nice hoppy bitterness. The hop flavour is nice, fresh and contains a bit of a sourness. Quite tasty. Really a beer I can drink the entire evening on a party. The palate is good. The beer has a nice medium body, medium light to be honest. The texture is quite smooth. Carbonation is medium. The finish has a nice hoppy flavour. Very good.
