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.

3.4 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)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold with a fading head.
Nose shows spicy, earthy and herbal hops along with some lemony notes.
Pretty similar flavours, but hoppier. More herbal notes and light malt with a grainy hint.
Could use a bit more carbonation.
Pretty decent attempt at a bohemian pilsner!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another well-made bottom-fermented beer from these guys. A decent summery pils with enough hop character to set it above the average big-bottlo fridge junk. Straw-coloured with a shallow pall of suds. Nice, zesty aroma, not a million miles away from the Steam Ale. Lemon peel, Saaz (?), faint ginger. Bright, spritzy palate. Light and fruity up-front before a tasty bitterness. Sauvin hops from NZ? Faintly metallic, with a dry, herbal finish. Worth a repeat visit. (355ml can from D’Vine Cellars, Wenty Falls)

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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014 BB 12/14. Poured a pale straw colour with a few millimetres for a head which retained as a collar. Laced OK. Carbonation moderate with medium sized bubbles. Aroma of citrus and spices/pepper. Taste of citrus and spice/?pepper but it lost its character as it warmed. Light body. Soft with a peppery finish - distinctly different from the one previously sampled. BB 24.07.14. Upon pouring, the white foam filled the 20cm tall glass to the rim and then diminished slowly. It produced a pale straw coloured liquid. Lacing all over side of glass, as expected. Low carbonation (just about flat – put all of the carbonation into making a big fluffy head). Visually unappealing. Aroma of slight malt, maybe a hint of citrus, no hops evident. Taste a bit grainy with faint lemon and a trace metallic. Light body. Finishes tangy. Not a good example of a pilsner (16 June 2014 Rated = 2.1)
