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.

Maris (983) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2013
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.

Canned 355ml. Very pale clear, minimal head, bright and bitter taste with clean little aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2383) - 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)

highlandlad (1416) - 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)

bmeup (515) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2013
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.

Sevenlee (1298) - 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.

mkel07 (3334) - 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.

Davros (1916) - 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!

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2013
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.
