1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Typical fizzy Aussie style ’Bohemian Pilsener. Its saazy, as you’d expect from a beer that has saaz hops in it, but in typical Aussie fashion, way too fizzy and served at near freezing temperatures. Some tinned fruit (SPC, Goulburn Valley etc)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another bottle from Poperinge’s mysterious sources. Fluffy head. Light gold colour. Noticeable light grass and cookie aroma. Doesn’t have the bite I like with a Pilsener. A lightly sweet finish but not an overuse of malt.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bland looking, pale golden body with an ordinary white head. Medium hop aroma, average taste that is not too sweet and just enough saaz hops to make it somewhat drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, at the Australian Hotel, Sydney Australia.
Bright golden larger, with an energetic head. Sharp bitter flavour, with a snappiness about it. Moderate length on the palate. Just one of the several thousand beers had with the old-man and younger bro. April 2006.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tried back in September 2010.
An odd amount of proteins in suspension once it settled in the glass, held there by the finest, most minute carbonation I have ever seen. A sunny, yellow straw and just shy of bright with a snow-white, sudsy white cap that is well retained. Grainbed nose with hints of damp chaff and fresh mown grass. Pleasant vanillin, doughy sweet front in the mouth with a malty mid-palate sprinkled with lemon-pepper. Medium-light in body, not as delicate as a Pilsner should be yet the spritzy carbonation has it bouncing across the tongue with haste. Dusty, herbal finish, subtle bitterness with a crisp edge and only a short waft of hop and malt to linger. This isn’t in the best of form showing signs of deterioration, but still goes down a treat. Fresh it might just be a cracker. (33cL, BB 25/05/10, Dan Murphy’s Balcatta)
