That wasn’t Heineken’s complete range of beers. It looks as if there were some beers which were only produced in Amsterdam: Gerste, Münchener and Export.

My guess would be that the Gerste was a lower gravity version of the Gerste brewed in Rotterdam, that is a dark, bottom-fermenting beer which wasn’t lagered. Export must be a type of Dortmunder, with a gravity of around 14º Plato. Münchener I suppose was a stronger version of Beiersch, again with a gravity of around 14º Plato.
Comparative prices in 1911
In this 1911 pricelist, you can see the relative prices of different types of Lager:
|Price relative to ABV|
|Beer||ABV||price per bottle||cents per 1% ABV||% cheaper than Pils|
|Advert in Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad, 16th September 1911, page 4.|
Pilsener was, relative to its alcoholic strength, the worst value for money, as this table demonstrates:
Pils was 26% more expensive per unit of alcohol.
