Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Slightly skunky nose, extremely clear, light yellow-orange color, nice carbonation and nicely sweet malty flavor with a hint of bitter skunk in the finish. Very enjoyable.

Reasonable Aussie effort at a pilsener. Bit of that saaz hops flavor coming through.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2013
Same macro-grainy character as the lager and light. Touch of hop - saazy - and that helps it along

Sledutah (4277) - Utah, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle at Jacksons on George in Sydney
Clear golden with a small white head, no lacing. Aroma of pils malts, honey and mildly skunky. Flavors of Pilsner malts, straw and honey
Decent

danlo (1060) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2013
330ml bottle. Golden amber colour, white foam head and aroma of malt, grassy. Taste is sweet malty, hay, grassy bitterness. Crisp, light bodied, medium carbonation, some residual sweetness, dry finish. OK.

ALLOVATE (2337) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2013
Chilled and into its own glass. Pours lacklustre; a headless yellow gold with moderate carbonation. Grassy, fresh mown lawn and hay on the nose - a touch sweet, sulphury and vegetal to taint it. Grassy hops dominate with a sourish malt edge on the swallow and gassy, edging crisp finish. Vegetal, grassy linger. Barnyard grain somewhat adds body but it is thin. Light honey lick sweetens it as it warms. Just a little boring to be honest; too grassy, too gassy and not refreshing at all. Hardly a Pilsner, more your typical Euro-lager. Next.... (33cL, 27/04/13, Dan Murphy’s, Currambine)

blackbock (110) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2013
(bottle) Pale insipid colour. Metallic aroma. Some sweet malt flavours Standard mega aussie hop tang. Extremely watery. Might appeal to the ladies?

Bif (1385) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle- Pours a copper color with a creamy head that fades very slowly to good lacing. Has that musty stale beer aroma with coarse grain and bit of malt sweetness. Taste of grain and some malt sweetness. Bitterness seems a bit metalic and has a sticky finish. Light body, coarse texture with a lot of rough edges. Not a very enjoyable beer. Not what I have come to expect in a pilsner. Best thing about this beer is the label.

330ml bottle. Drinkable just. A little better than their lager, but not really worth the effort.

One word aptly describes this beer: terrible. It lacks any flavour and is boring.

Raggy_Rog (1) - Maroochydore, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2012 does not count
As soon as I opened the bottle I could smell the horrible stench of what would be a most un-pleasurable bitterness to soon be downed by me. I dare say it’s possibly the worst beer I’ve ever had... so far...
