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.

motelpogo (6968) - 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 (4961) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - 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 (3669) - 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.

ALLOVATE (2469) - 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)

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2013
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!

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2014
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.

Lunkie (1459) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2013
Hop chemical aroma. Clear pale yellow colour poor head and lacing. Chemical stale malt flavour. Flat palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

highlandlad (1418) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2013
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)

Sevenlee (1403) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2013
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.

vanvenlo (1305) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2013
Dan Murphy can (15-Nov-13) Citrus lemon stale hop aroma. Clear yellow colour, underprimed, no head and small suds lacing. Lemonade light herbal flavour. Tangy lemon light herbal spice finish and light herbal lemon aftertaste.
