COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gage Road Pils is craft brewed to be a superior midstrength lager. Pure malt and noble hops combine to give Pils its complex and refreshing Australian character.
Gage Roads PILS is the first pilsner style midstrength in Australia. It’s only 3.5% alcohol by volume but displays all the distinctive qualities of a full strength European pilsner. Crisp and effervescent with a dry, refreshing finish, it’s a midstrength you’ll actually enjoy drinking.

I’m in too minds on this one. On one hand just another industrial new world pils that is loaded with a sticky adjunct character (think sweet character-less malts) but to be fair there’s quite a bit of flavour packed into a mid-strength. I could drink these all day if I had to.

blackbock (112) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2014
(Bottle) Aroma of sickly malt and noble hop. Pale straw colour. Very clear. Thin body as might be expected. First taste was very nice, but tiring on the palate due to the non-existent bitterness. Still the hop aroma was enough to lend some respectability to this mid strength quaffer. Undecided whether I like this beer or not.

KeefOz (967) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2013
330ml stubbie BB 12/2/14. Poured a clear golden colour with a one-finger white foamy head that retained well and laced OK. High carbonation as seen by many small to medium bubbles forming trails. Aroma of sweet malt and musty grain. Taste of sweet malt followed by a very faint hops bitterness but as the beer warms the taste becomes quite malty. Light body. A crisp, clean, smooth, light flavoured beer with a rather bland finish. Very larger like.

Bif (1559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours a clear pale yellow Cole with a small head that fades quickly to no lacing. Aroma is a bit musty with some malt sweetness and grain and bit of citrus. Taste of mild citrus, malt sweetness an grain. Decent bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp clean and refreshing. Comes up a bit short on flavor. Not a lot here but better than many of the big brewers offerings.

jdpeebs (687) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2012
330ml bottle. pours yellow in colour. Slight hop aroma. Biscuity malt flavour. A bit too malty for a pilsner. Drinkable, but nothing special, slight bitter aftertaste.

Dervock (505) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle - Pours pale yellow with a fizzy head which disappeared before I could get the glass to my mouth. Bready aroma with a slight hint of hops. More of a pils aroma from the bottle than in the glass. Malt on the taste with some hop dryness and flavour in the finish. moderate carbonation.

maneliquor (3263) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2011
Buttery shortbread and floral/citrus in this one. Not too shabby for a mid. Much better than some of the beers that compare to it

bmeup (523) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2010
Clear pale gold with white head. Subdued aromas & flavours of malt & hops. More an average mid pale lager, but hey for what it is, it’s ok.

mkel07 (3680) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2009
330ml bottle. Rich amber colour with a smooth frothy head. Sparkling with mild carbonation and a stong hop and malt aroma. Mild bitterness which is cleansing on the palate. Crisp and clean to taste - a good session beer.

Bottle. Buttery floral aroma. Clean malty palate, but a bit too grainy for me.
