2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Quite an attractive number. Deep, orange gold and radiant but not quite bright. Head holds high; a half inch of white foam that laces well. Subtle nose; spicy, clean hops and bready malt with a hint of lemon peel and passionfruit. Moderately bitter bite in back, spicy but more a phenolic spiciness than one derived from hops. Mildly soapy feel and light body with a sprightly carbonation. Quite dry with cereal grains upfront and a lingering pinewood note that builds as thee glass empties. I like it but think it needs the edges trimmed. Unsure of bottling date but this one doesn’t seem brewery fresh. One for a re-rate. (33cL, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear light amber with a thin broken white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is light malt. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a pure sweet sickly eartjy mineral malt palate. Light to moderate bodied witn lively carbonation. Pretty awful I must say.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught in Melbourne. A sub-par Aussie attempt at a German pilsner. Too sweet and lacking in dry hop bitterness. Refined smooth palate is a redeeming feature.

This is a pretty ordinary, refreshing enough pilsener. Not my type of beer. Shared bottle at plonk.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden yellow with a foam white head. Largely malty aroma that was unexpected for a pilsener. Other reviews of this did not regard it highly, however I found it to be one of the better Aus pilseners that I’ve tried. A little light citrus aroma to compliment the malt backbone. Very well accompanied the pork entree it was matched with. Typical light and dry flavour, however I didn’t find any of the sour yeast flavours that others had described. Maybe I got a good batch

Bottle (and an old one at that). Seemed excessively malty to me, with not enough bitterness. The age of the bottle didn’t help. I would like to try this fresh on tap for a comparison.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Nose is a bit of noble hop and not much else. Taste is clean and crisp, with a bit of spiciness and a wet cardboard finish. Not bad, but nothing outstanding.

Easily drinkable clear yellow beverage. Not to bad. Struggling to write any thing else mind.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2013 On tap at dejavu. This beer was horrible! So plain and boring. All the flavours taste watered down. Didn’t bother to finish this one. TASTED LIKE FUCKING CAT PISS--Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Sherlock Holmes. Served a light golden color with a fair head that fades to some lacing. Aroma is a bit muted with some citrus and malt sweetness and bit of grain. Has a light citus flavor with some malt sweetness and bit of fruit. Light body, crisp smooth and refreshing. Decent pilsner, better than a Euro Lager by a long shot.
