3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice imperial pilsner. A big saaz and grassy aroma with perfume and flower notes. A cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. A sweet funky flavor with some lemons and peach. A slight alcohol burn on the way down. A nice beer indeed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2006 Draft. Huge saaz hop aroma is citric, grapefruit peel and lightly floral and beneath this lies a grainy/grassy smelling malt aroma. The body is a rich golden color and holds a firm creamy looking, lasting, white head. Big grapefruit hop blast in the fore followed by a balancing, slightly sweet, malt base that is a little grassy, but very crisp. At times the malt component gets almost bready, but the hops are firm and even and are the main element. Finish is light, dry and imparts a sustained hop bitterness. Nicely done.

Light gold in color. Tons of Saazy goodness from the aroma to the finish. The sticky maltiness kicks in late along with some alcohol warmth. Pretty good pils.

I really dig this beer; More so than most of the other Dunedin beers but only because their house-yeast, which is so plentiful in most all the others. But that’s cool; the house yeast thing, it makes their beers distinguishable, I just prefer this style better.
Pours a lovely golden / orange body and a tall white head. The aroma is blissful earthy / woody /grassy hops nearly shroud in biskity blanket of sweet candy like malts. The hops are citric in a way but more of an undertone of spruce wood chips in the spiciness but the citrus does come out in a lemon zest form; a hint of herbal-ness, lemon grass and rosemary twigs. I really like the way it’s all put together, I don’t know that it could ever be done the same way again, in truth. The beer seemed experimental; yet intended… if you get that?

Pours cloudy lemon yellow with minimal head and lacing. No aroma whatsoever. Light bodied with a creamy palate tinged with lemon-lime. Simple, typical of a pilsner.good for the style.

Pours hazy yellow, nice white head. This just didn’t do it for me I know all the hype was around this being there first lager, but it wasn’t for me. Slight malts then being overtaken by grapefruit tasting hops and too much of them, I’m not a hop fan and that’s all that was going on here.

Tap. Pours a clear golden with a one finger lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of pilsner malt and floral hops. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Very good.
