Pils’N’Thrills is the Garage’s irreverent take on a classic European Pilsner, given extra kick with high-citrus American hops.

Draft at the brewery. Clear bright golden yellow with a one-finger white head. Aroma is floral and citrusy with white grape, grainy notes. Flavor is nice and citrusy for a pils along with a nice malt background. Medium-light body with a good crispness. A very nice pilsner.

[8374-20160529] Tap. Grape metallic leaf aroma. Clear, pale orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Bitter leafy grapes flavour has a bit of a Sauvignon Blanc thing going on. Medium body is fairly bitter. Good. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.4

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
2016-05-29. Crisp dark yellow body with a small creamy off white head. 3+ Aroma is relatively mild, floral hops, muted sweet pale malt, notes of flour. Flavour is moderately bitter up front, gets a bit more bitter, interesting mild fruit, finishes with sweet pale malt impression. Hops gain more depth as you go, more fruit, light green hop character. Average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 3+ Okay. Overall impression is sweeter than my preference. 6/3/6-7/3/13 On tap at Garage Project - Aro 91, Wellington, NZ.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2016 2nd taste of this and it is probably my favourite Pils, but still only gets to 2.7. Aroma and taste were typically bland, like all Pils, but the aftertaste was pretty much perfect - dry and perfectly balanced, imploring the next mouthful

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2016
330mL can from Yarragon Ale House. BB 08/04/2016 Pale gold body, fluffy white head. Lifted aroma - citrus, unripe melon, grassy hops, toasty grainy Pilsner malts in support. Medium bodied, crisp, lingering finish, moderate carbonation. Pilsner malts upfront on palate - toast, grain, cracker biscuit paving the way for lively hop notes of lemon rind, cut grass, unripe tropical fruits. Bitterness quite aggressive, holds on for a long moreish finish. Damn good pils

Loads of malt. This is interesting. I miss out on the citrus described with this beer. Honestly it’s mainly malt. Poured from tap small head

hawthorne00 (3540) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2015
Can. Gold with a white head. Sweet and clean with kumquat, mandarin grapefruit. Quite peppery at the fairly bitter finish. That seems to me a pretty reverent move. Soft texture. Nice, maybe could be drier at end and whilst the bready malt is fine I’d prefer it a little leaner or toasted.

KeefOz (1561) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2015
BB 08/04/2016. Poured a slightly hazy golden amber with a one-finger off-white foamy/sudsy head that retained poorly and laced poorly. Carbonation moderate and fine to medium. Aroma subtly of malt with subtle tropical fruits if lucky. Taste with hints of citrus and tropical fruits followed by moderate bitterness. Light to medium body. Crisp, clean with a lingering moderate tarty bitterness on the finish.
