COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Spruiker's Challenge Dutch Courage Brew
Delicate hop flower aromas precede a palate so light, crisp and balanced that it’s often mistaken for a pilsner.

CAN. Pours a see through yellow to gold, minimal crisp head.. Floral to grassy notes on the nose, but subtle.. Pretty much an easy drinking Kolsch, not much flavours or taste bounce at you.. Good crisp finish, minimal bitterness at back end.. Summer beer.. Not as enjoyable off the TAP. CAN sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

To me it’s more pilsner like - reasonably crisp - thankfully not much cloying malt character - but no real flavour and no character. Meh.

hank37 (149) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2014
Light, almost typical macro-lager aromas, but a surprisingly dense, malty beer with hints of the promised lemon sorbet coming through. easily smashable, dependent on price/24.

Sevenlee (1528) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2013
Pours a yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit,citrus and some spices. Taste is light sweet leading to a moderate bitter and spicey finish. Ok

Rangi (628) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 16, 2012
Pale yellow clear poor. Slight white head tat laces the glass really well. Taste is thin and watery but refreshing. Nice lively carbonation. There is a really nice slight gentle sweetness to the beverage.

Tap @ Raffles. Love that this is always a regular at Raffles. Great sessionable, well balanced beer. Fruity hops and some pepperness with the perfect amount of carbonation. Very good
