3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Extremely pale yellow-gold colour with a white head that dissipated in time. A good snort revealed lemongrass, peel and a local favourite - Lemon and Paeroa. In the mouth it is thin with a prickly carbonation with tart favours of the same aroma profiles. It is crisp and refreshing and ideally a summer quaffer... sadly, itís Autumn.
Please donít think for a moment that I didnít like this beer. Itís just that I am not the target market. There will be customers who rave about it and deservedly so.

It might just be me. and the hops and the style, but I really do get a plastic aroma from this. Not just related to this beer though, Iíve had it a lot with Pilsener beer I need to think more about that. Daily crisp but not really that exciting. looks great pour is lovely, great head, but not jiggy enough with it

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a huge white head. Aroma of citrus blossoms (lime, orange) gooseberries, crackers. Over-carbonated. As it warms and gasses out a bit, some hayish malt emerges which balances the interesting hops well after it first seemed just fruity and bitter. The hops walk a line between floral and NZ fruity that makes Kiwi pils such a fine thing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Restrained grassy aroma in a clear golden pour. Nice brew that tends to the traditional (Urquel) dry over the local (Emersons) fruity balance.

Taster at GABS Melbourne 230515. Good pilsener that makes a lot of other pilseners that I have had look very average. Clean and crisp in the mouth.

The head is ok, the body golden. It smells hoppy malty, bit bitter, flowery. The taste is hoppy, bit bitter, bit flowery, malty. OK

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite a bit of lime on the palate, yet with a bit of an astringent lingering bitterness. For summer day (which unfortunately it is not)
