3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 330ml bottle on 24/1/2011. Has a mild aroma of sweet malt and grass. There’s a strong Euro malt flavour, with a light dash of citrus fruit. Finishes with a good, lingering hop kick. All up, a pretty good crack at a pilsener.

Clear, pale gold body with lasting white head. Citrusy notes aroma and taste, just some hop bitterness without too much hop flavour, a little thin but still drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a nice light golden straw with largish white head. Nice looking beer. Nice grainy ho aromas nicely offset by citrusy hops. Quite subtle but good all the same. The grainy malt follows through to the flavours with good resiny hop bitterness on the finish. Medium mouthfeel. This is a really good beer. Enjoyed it.

Bottle 330ml. Nice pilsner. Aromas of honey, flowers, and pine. Taste starts sweet, with a lingering bitter finish. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Yellow, bubbly, with a head that doesn’t last.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright gold with an inch of very white head that fades quickly to a coat. Medium bead. Hay and hop nose: the Kiwi influence is there (passionfruit, gooseberries), but mingled with earth and meadows. Quite fruity and sweet with orange and passionfruit. Quite prominent bitterness. The new world influence is slightly greater in the taste, but not to the point of clashing - more of a twist on more traditional pilsners. Not bad, but a little too much sweetness and fruit for me.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear pale straw colour with a thin white head. Aromatic hops - pine, grassy, citric notes, passion fruit, lychee, straw/hay and flowers. full bodied with good bitterness and malt profile, finishes clean, dry and crisp with lingering flavour. This beer is complex and smashable, a great contribution to the Australian beer scene.
