2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml can. Clear, bright golden yellow in colour with a fine, fading white head. Leafy, peppery aromas to the fore with a zippy citrus centre. Light to medium body, clean, crisp and fresh in the mouth with a firm mid-palate and drying medium carbonation. Finishes with a low intensity, modest length grassy bitterness. A pure, restrained and refreshing pils with a gentle hop bite and lean pale malt balance.

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.
