1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
On my visit to Galbraith I took a pour of three cask ales and found them all acidic and bile-like, one of them fooled me and I got a half pint to sit with but it didnít take long to find the stomach acid in that beer either. Sadly the Bohemian Pils was no different: subtly acidic and sour with plant matter / leaf astringency, lemon, cheese rind, laundry detergent and armpit sweat... I mean itís like animal sweat, musk, feces, the whole game-y experience of walking up to a pungent deer bed. Carbonation goes totally acidic like stomach bile, thereís solvent overload on the back palate. Scratching my head how the Munich Lager (Pilsner) from bottle is worthy of a mid-to-high 3 while the Bohemian Pils fared so poorly.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
light grassy, moderate amount of biscuit character and a moderately bitter finish. A touch unbalanced and sour but still a great beer

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Lots of DMS on the nose. More corn with the first sip. Hints of vomit. Not very nice really. Sipped it again. Same flavours. Drank some water, then the beer. Still the same. Worst of the beers at the pub by some distance

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a rich clear gold with a whit head. Weak aroma- Euro hops, grass, malt, citrus. Flavor is grainy, with hops, grass, and a mild sweetness. Light bodied, with a dry finish. Not bad for the style, but probably the least impressive one I tried from Galbraith.

Draught at Galbraithís Alehouse, Auckland. Pours pale golden with small white head. Some light floral and grassy notes but just falls short of the mark. Quite thin and average bitterness.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Second beer of the night...still thirsty after the Munich...man how humid is it in Auckland! Looks great in the glass, a shade darker than Munich and the better for it. Slightly fruity zest on the nose, this has a lighter fruitier malt/hop presence than the Munich which allows it to seem fresher and more quenching. This is a style i do love and i like the way this is more true to style than other antipodean offerings but isnít lessened by this fact. This beer is a problem for me, anywhere else i would drink this by the bucketload but at Galbraiths i hardly touch it because of the real ale offerings!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(On tap) Clear, golden with a creamy, white head leaving a neat curtain of laces. Aroma of malt and perhaps a whiff of flowers. Medium body with a solid, lightly sweet malt base and a dry finish with a surprisingly discreet bitterness. Not quite as characterful as could be expected from a Bohemian Pils. 070208

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at the brew pub, a clear and bright gold with a bubbly white head. A clean hoppy citrus aroma. The palate is quite smooth for a pilsner at first, but then becomes more dry and grainy - which I think dominates the flavours that could come from the malt and hops.
