Draft courtesy of Mr Richard Emerson, thank you sir! Bright crystal clear yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of white pepper and straw. Taste is clean, crisp, full bodied and fruity. Very nice.

Gyllene i färgen, stort vitt skum. Doftar gräs, malt, hö, humle, citrus. Smakar friskt av ljus malt, humle citrus, gula frukter som nektarin aprikos, ananas och passionfrukt. Bra pils.

floydian1 (1360) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 4, 2012
This is a decent German style pilsner with a crisp refreshing palate and nicely balanced sweet honey malt vs dry hop bitter flavour profile. Medium light body with average carbonation. Golden pour with white head. 500ml bottle.

Well balanced pils, slightly weaker malt balance than expected. Citrusy hops give long lasting, satisfying taste on palate. Tried on tap and in bottle, prefer bottle as glaciers are crisper ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a bright lemony straw colour. The head didn’t last long for this bottle. Not a strong nose: a little passionfruit, a little lager-yeast sulfur and not much else. Things get better in the mouth: fruity cascade and aromatic noble hops play out in equal measure over a biscuity malt backbone. Not a skunky as a Bohemian or German pilsner. Dry, bitter, herbal finish. Full and creamy. Carbonation is just about perfect.
