3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2011 A great modern example of a New World pilsner. Pours a lovely straw gold, with a good sized head that stays until the end (albeit a little smaller). Aroma is nice and fruity, with lychee, passion fruit & citrus. Some good malt aroma behind it all as well. As shambles pointed out, nice to see the listing of ingredients on the packaging... and such good quality ingredients by the taste of it - fruity, citrus, with a well balanced bitterness. Palate is full, which really works with this beer. As the label says, ideal for a beer garden on a hot day. Speaking of which, as a Melbournite, i find the label really works - very "rock music poster"... Maybe things move a little slower up in the Blue Mountains.... ;-)

Hazy and very pale. Very hoppy aroma and taste. Medium bitterness, fresh pale malts, a bit thin in the finish but a good hoppy brew.

Pours pale golden with a fluffy white head. Hopped out aroma, citrus and zest backed with the characteristic lager aroma. Fruity on the palate, dry and sessionable. Bready malt backbone. Easy drinking hopped out pils and perfect for summer

Surprise package - tasty hoppy lager - nice bitter finish - not recognisably German, this is uniquely Southern Hemisphere with maybe a nod to Mikkeller’s American Dream - will have to taste another soon!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite an earthy aroma of dirt and talcum powder together with some peach and a hint of citrus. It’s as pale as they come. The taste is of sweet, slightly unpleasant malt, partly masked by fairly dry, bitter hops.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Not going to go into too much detail here, this is just a simple, slightly zesty and hopped up Pils. Very clean down the palate. Solid

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a clear golden amber colour with a thin white bubble head. Moderate to high carbonation. Aroma of sweet floral hops, passionfruit and a trace of citrus. Taste is sweet with a very slight subtle hops bitterness. Light body. Short very slight and subtle bitter finish. Quite OK.

Good pilsener colour with a useful white head that is sinking slowly into the glass in front of me. Not necessarily conventional hoppy aroma, but then there’s a fair amount of interpretation going on with the pilsener style. Gentle grapefruit and lemon aromas. Not overwhelming hop aroma, but it’s there and it is pleasant. Good fluffy mouthfeel and gentle fruity characters. There’s a definite nod to the German malts which I really like. The bitterness is very gentle and the finish is so subtle as to be too short. On the whole though, excellent sessionable beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a light straw colour, with a thin loose head that dissipates fairly quickly. High carbonation. Aromas of citrus and passionfruit. Taste is sweet, almost like some mainstream radlers, finish disappears quickly, lacking a satisfying bitterness. Drinkable Pilsner but underwhelming in many regards.

This beer is not expensive for aussie craft and I think it’s a very good session beer. Some new world fruity hops early before some daggy pils bitterness kicks in. Bitterness leaves the palate feeling sharp.

330ml bottle. Not a big lover of pilseners but this one was okay. Amber and very clear with a deep white cloud of foam capping it off. Passionfruit and citrus aromas are pleasant as is the clean crisp flavour that leaves a little dryness on the palate. Overall pretty good.
