330 ml. bottle sampled. BBF 04-2018. Label states Independant brewers over 7 generations. Website maintenance this nonsense despite this being a Bavaria product. Plenty of marketing nonsense like this out there & it is far from limited to the beer world. Golden, sparkling, totally clear, soapy white head that fizzes away. Nose is unpleasant vegetable oil sweet with chemical apples pale lager. Sparking, mineral, empty, industrial. Really poor plastic taste, finish is just cooked vegetable, plastic, vegetable oil, old paper, empty fizzy, mineral, nasty oily vegetable, empty beer. Real rubbish.

Really good appearance, so live. Taste... nothing special, just another one (not bad) industrial beer.

20170526 HOME; 33 cl bottle; BB 02.2018. A nice yellow coloured clear beer with a thin white foam layer. Aroma is not much, but we smell malt, sweet and hopbitter. Taste starts a little malty and sweet with some yellow fruitiness. In the aftertaste a nice hopbitter is coming up, which become light dry. Nice pilsener. Only a litte too sweet for me. Body is medium.

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 it’s 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 don’t make much difference, can’t be a lot of them in... Light body, bit gristslick, not much carbonation. Decent Pilsner, strictly nothing more.

bonkiedeaap (850) - 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. Oké pilsner, but way to expensive.

Rubin77 (2748) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 7, 2017
F: medium size, egg-white, quick gone. C: deep gold, clear. A: malty, grassy, hint of floral, bread. 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.
