3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had this at Beer Cartel, overall a nice mainstream Pilsner, one that is actually a Pilsner not just a pale lager branded as one. Nice citrus tones, quite smooth. The most drinkable out of their range.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 355ml can on 6/7/2013. Pours a clearish straw colour with a big white head. Has a strong, quite pleasant citrus aroma. The flavour features pale malt, more cirus fruit, lemon zest and a subtle hint of grapefruit, with a good, firm bitterness to finish thing off. The body and carbonation are both medium. These guys are doing a Surly and serving in cans and making some rather good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright, palest yellow gold with sparse carbonation and a loose and lasting, sudsy white head. Clean peppery hop nose with hints of lemon zest, wheat grain and pear drops. Prominant spicy hops on the palate. Light but firm bodied, grainy and dry, and fuelled by prickly carbonation. Ends crisp, bitter and dry with a pleasant herbal hop edge and residual, citrus peel notes. This is a great little quaffer. If this is a wholly DME lager then they’re doing it right. Went down very nicely indeed! (355mL can, BB 04/12/13, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a can at 2013 Canberra Beer Festival. Nice hoppy/malty pilsner, Saaz hops obvious. An ok drop, slight metallic taste spoilt it a bit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from DM. Pale and slightly hazy, generous white head. Aromas of pale malt, grass hint of citrus and hops. Quite a pleasant bitterness and a good example of this style.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml can from Dan Murphy’s. Australa’s first craft beer in a can. Pale and yellow with a clean white head. Straw and grain aroma is okay. Good full body for a pilsner, clean crisp flavour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is malt, citrus, spices and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a spicy and hoppy finish. Pretty good.
