Bottle. Light yellow, small white head. Citrusy aroma. Fresh straw like taste, refreshing. Light on the tongue. Almost a white wine vinegar taste in here as well. Started on quite nice, but I found it a little bland and watery as it finished (this was a pretty old bottle too mind you). Not bad though, and a rare treat, thanks.

Bottled @ KØ 2005: Yellow coloured. Clear. Off white head. Sweet, malty and fruity aroma. Yeast, spice(Corriander), light soap, banana and grape in the flavour. Is medium bitter in the end, and has a medium body, giving a nice long duration on the palate. Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
Light hazy golden colour with a white head. Light sweet malty light spicy aroma and taste, very bitter. Medium body and a bitter finish. Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2005
This is a welcome change to the usual procession of strong ales in this stable of beers. Good presentation in the glass although a little hazy for the style. There is a strong presence of herbaceous hop aroma somewhat like a Jever Pils. The flavour is dry and clean with a slight back palate of sourness that does not detract from the overall enjoyment of this beer.

Hazy golden colour with a white head. Malty aroma with a nice sweetness and a balanced hoppyness. Flavor starts malty then becomes bitter and dry. bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - APR 6, 2005
this place is the greatest place in amsterdam....off the beaten path but gives you ’real feel’ for lacal life....and beer brewed in a windmill, how could you go wrong. all their beers have the same yeasty belgium quality to them...this didnt remind me of a pilsener at all had a golden nice thick thatch top head. coriander and citrus notes. good and refreshing. some off characteristics as well.

On tap at the brewery in Amsterdam. Cardboard/glue aroma. Slightly hazey appearance, with a persistent thin head and thick lacing. Flavoursome Pilsener, with a real herby, medicinal quality - faintly reminiscent of chloraseptic throatspray. Solid in the mouth. Despite the above description, I enjoyed this - quite engaging and still refreshing. Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2005
Unpilsenerlike large head, that stays for a while. Starts very common but ends up into a sour-bitter finish. Excellent pilsener, pretty fullbodied. RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2004
Bottled at Microbar, Battersea. I agree with duff, definitely Belgian style yeastiness/spiciness detected. Nice hop bitterness. Slight sour notes.
