TedE (1015) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2015
330ml into glass. Spicy hop/malty nose. Golden amber beer with thin white head. A few bubbles. Slick mouthfeel, sweet taste. Nice crisp finish of creamy hops. Could drink a few of these in a session.

Pyobon (1315) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2015
(Bottle) Hazy pale golden with short-lived thin loose white head. Not very appealing aroma of grain, grass and cardboard hints. Light body, good carbonation. Taste starts with a pleasant soft light sweetness, goes through a rather bland mid-palate and finishes with some rather harsh bitterness. An unusual take on a pilsner, but not really to my taste.

Maris (1393) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 11/12/2014. Pours a light clear golden with a small head. The nose features some prominent grassy malt and saaz hops. Taste wise, itís a bit confusing, with earthy, metallic and chemical flavours coming over the top of some mild bready and grassy malt, with some moderate hops following. Light bodied with lively carbonation. A little harsh and difficult to enjoy.

sm89walt (1974) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2014
330ml bottle. A clear, bright golden orange colour that poured with a fine, loose and fizzy white head. Zesty, fresh lemon and orange characters with subtly sweet, nutty pale malts and a pithy, grassy hop bite to finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and all the while clean, crisp and refreshingly textured with a tangy, modestly bitter finish of good length.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2014
Pours golden with a white head. Looks appealing. Mild citrus aroma with minimal hop character. Sweet malt backbone, light bodied with medium carbonation. Not much hop flavour. A little citrus sweetness with some rind to round it out. Decent but not memorable

Jmar33 (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2014
Tap. Strong honey flavour which is not the worst, but still has a bit of that skunky lager taste/smell that appeals to the masses. Not the worst

StevieT (1627) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2014
From a bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a tiny head. Malty aroma with a hint of hops, fruit flavours with a mild bitter aftertaste. Itís well carbonated and refreshing with a crisp finish.

StuffWine (149) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2014
Poured attractive orange-amber with nice creamy white head. Aroma of sweet citrus and white bread notes. Watery and almost no flavour initially, moving to rind-bitterness. Contrastingly, the body is full with a good length to the finish. Overall all good except the very important part - flavour.
