UPDATED: MAY 23, 2011 A very good pilsner and perfect summer drinking. Nice hoppy nose, lots of things happening. Mouthfeel is a little fizzy, but smooth and well balanced. Goes down really well. Top stuff.

canít believe I havent rated this one yet! one of the best all year beers in NZ, for beergeeks and laymen alike. rumor has it in NZ that this is actually top fermented, but Iím not sure I agree, there is definitely some sulphur in the aroma along with malt and passionfruit. The flavor is malty with some passionfruit again. kinda sweet but perfectly balanced with the bitterness.

Davros (2726) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2009
Crystal clear pale amber pour with a small head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is very floral and grassy with some sweet peach and pale malts in the background. Some faint diacetyl later on. Flavours are mostly green floral hops, sweet biscuity malts and and assertive hoppy bitterness. Carbonation is slightly too high but otherwise mouthfeel is fine. An excellent example of the style.

snuffla (158) - Chch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 24, 2009
Pours golden, complex nose of honey, biscuits, passionfruit and spring onion (which is odd but nice all at once). RIch bitterness with more spring onion from the riwaka and a nice palate cleansing sweetness.

On Tap. Pours clear yellow,orange. Aroma of big saaz like hops,floral,passionfuit. Tastes of mid malt with mid hop saaz like flavour finishing with a nice stronge bitterness. Overall a nice pilsinser,well balanced with good bitterness, only fault is the malt finishes a bit thin. Also taste like the fermentation might have been a bit hot.
