COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The king of beers. Pale and bright but don’t let this wolf in sheep’s clothing fool you, there’s lots of spicy fresh hop aromas and a fair hit of bitterness making this a beer to be reckoned with.

Oakes (15252) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
Draught at the brewery. Light golden colour. Heavy continental hop aroma. The flavour is more of that, with moderate bitterness. The malts are clean, providing good balance.

mcberko (13227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016
On tap at the Australian Brewery, pours a hazy yellow blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of grass and biscuity malt. Flavour is light and clean, with biscuity malt and a touch of grass. Drinkable and dry, with a good crispness. Simple.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 20, 2014
canned. pale and yellowy with a shortlived frothy head; aroma of peanut skin and old hay; light bitterness. a bit of an insult to pilsen

jmgreenuk (7256) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 9, 2014
Tap at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear straw colour with lots of bubbles and a frothy white head. The aroma is light malt, yeast. The flavour is moderate bitter with a yeast, hop bitter, light zesty citrus palate and a somewhat unpleasant yeasty aftertaste. Light bodied with lively carbonation.

mkel07 (4978) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2013
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.

TimE (4881) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 29, 2015
very clean nose with lots of noble hops. The mouth is light body clean and dry with good grassy character. Clean finish. Nice stuff.

hawthorne00 (3411) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2015
Can. Pale gold with white head. Aroma is earthy and husky with herbs and a bit of lemon. Sweetish with moderate bitterness, quite lemony. OK, but malt flavours a bit muddled - doesn’t have that clean plain pils malt that can would be nicely seasoned by the hops here.

maekchu (3351) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 18, 2015
Can from Kumiyama AEON Mall. Tropical fruit nose, a bit grainy (harsh), citrus, and some grass. Clear medium straw color, thin head, and sloppy lace. Gentle malty initial, thick tropicla fruit and citrus, some mild bitterness in finish. Not bad. An unusual pils, to be sure. This brewery likes to play around with hops.

northropfrye (3186) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 21, 2015
Labelled as "New World Pilsner." Light clear golden yellow body, foamy white head, some lacing. Initially nice citrus hop aroma, some wet malt and nuttiness. Taste has a touch of bitterness, and a dry almost-watery finish. Not bad for the style.

ALLOVATE (2857) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2013
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)
