COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Feral Pils is a crisp refreshing lager of medium body but with a definite malt character. It has a distinct hop aroma achieved by adding a generous infusion of the noble Saaz hop at the end of the boil.
Previously organic certified and called Organic Pilsener.

Just a really middle of the road pils. Almost macro like. Little of the grassy hops on the nose - more grainy than anything. Body is very straight forward, grains and cereal with a low, undistinct bitter finish.

Tap at Local Taphouse: Just labelled "Pilsner", as on the website - not sure if it’s the same beer or not. Anyway, it’s great. Quite yeasty and a little rough and ready, but really up my alley. Nice pils malt flavour, but it could stand to come through a touch more. Big bitterness which is slightly coarse, but otherwise the hop character is excellent; tasting very Czech, kinda strong but restrained. Lager yeast flavour, but not sulfury. Reminded me a lot of Modra Hvezda’s beer, or Czech brewpub svetla more generally. Really tasty stuff, wish I could’ve smashed a bunch more.

Clear golden yellow, no lace, aromas and flavours of of grassy hops and malt with a mildly bitter finish. Very good.

OK everyone, we are supposed to be in awe at a beer that is organic. Unfortunately for Feral they have some competition over the ditch from Emersons with their organic pils. Oh well, the Kiwis can’t beat us at cricket but they kill us here. It is good andobviously suitable to the climate here. There is just too much expectation which isn’t countered by the delivery here. Keep it up though gents.

ALLOVATE (2458) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Tasted on draught at the Guildford Hotel, Guildford. Poured a crystal, pale straw with misshaped ’kegged’ bubbles, that struggled to keep the white foam on past the first mouthful. Lemon and apple aroma, clean liquor and a touch of freshly mowed grass. The thin body gave little in flavour and it was harshly carbonated. Light hint of malt mid palate with a little spiciness, and a noticeable diacetyl soapiness-feel, throughout, that left a layer on my tongue. May have been the pipes or keg at fault for the bad sample, because this was a sub-standard beer, especially from the good people at Feral.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2004
On tap at brewery: A lot of RBeerians seem to like this but the over the top corn flavour just isn’t my thing and I’m not a big fan of pils anyway. Pours a MCG with a small white head. Aroma is stale floral hops. Flavour is corn sweet with a touch of mild hops. I got none of the hop flavour other raters are going on about except at the finish which is a touch acrid.

AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2004
Golden lager appearance, high carbonation. Nice, light malty aroma, some honey, flowery, perfumy hops. Light malt, soon to be overwhelmed by a firm drying bitterness, floral saaz hoppiness, quite the standout at NFOB 2003.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2004
a little malty with slightly flowery hop aromas, clear light golden appearance, the bitterness stands out the most, good floral hop flavour with high bitterness and some malt flavours.

One of the few that stuck out for me at the Brisbane Festival o beers. On Saturday I actually got a jug of the stuff because I couldn't hack much else. It had a decent buttery profile which, of the pils I've had, reminded me most of Emersons. I'd love to have a proper pint of this one day, rather than just out of plastic cups in a Qld barn. Nice drop.

Had this on two occasions at the Brissy Beer Festival (both on tap), the first time i was really impressed by the bitterness, buttery-sweetish malts and floral saaz character. Second time was still nicely bitter, but didn't grab me as much as the first time. But, this is still a top class pils, well made.
