Draft at the brewery. Clear straw color with a lacy white head. Aroma is grass, funky NZ hops, white grape skin, grain. Flavor is balanced and dry, medium bitter with nice hoppiness. Light and drinkable but not thin. Really good.

A fine tap beer, but no more than fine. Aroma was minimal, but a good bitter body and aftertaste. Mild citrus

Cervesa poc aromàtica però amb un gust molt intens on es destaquen les fruites tropicals.

Tried on tap at Fine Wine Delivery Co. Light gold in colour and minimal head with a slight malty aroma. A very approachable pilsner, nice and fresh off tap too.

Clear golden beer, small but persistent head, floral aromas as well as some esters like cheese are felt. The body is light - medium and it is flavorsome with a nice balance between malt flavor and bitterness, my only concern is that actually the pilsner flavor is too fruity and for that reason I’m not sure if it is matching properly the style. Anyway is a good product and for sure I would have it again.
Probably the best example of a New Zealand style Pilsner available. Something of a classic and one I have tried many times. Very delicate earthy nose typical of Czech Pilsners. Light straw colour with light white lasting head. Taste is a master class in balance; beautiful pale malt followed by fruity hoppy bitterness. Perfectly balanced. Easy to drink. Fantastic beer.

Such a tasty wee beer. Easily drinkable but with some great balance and flavour.
