2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I"m not sure the guys at GP have got the can thing totally sussed. First Angry Peaches and now Pils N Thrills seem to lose most of their carbonation in the huge 4 finger heads, leaving the rest of the glass a bit life-less. Aroma was as if half a lime had been squeezed into the beer. Very nice, but not very pilsener. I had to really swirl the glass to pick out the biscuity, bready malt. Taste as aroma, the limey bitterness is too strong for the malt and as mentioned by Omega below, there is a metallicness. I’d like to try this on tap to see how it compares to the can.

330ml can. Another fantastically presented product from the lads, however I am getting a metallic tinge from the can which is influencing my rating for this beer dramatically.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Botte from Slowbeer. Bright, clear golden/amber, amazing tangy lemon/citrus aromas, sweet biscuity malts, pine/citrus flavours, perfect on the palate. Hoppier and more bitter than most pilseners, but this was perfect for me. Loved it!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No a bad beer, but in all honesty this is not the best from GP. It is hoppy but tenders towards being very bitter and unbalanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear golden yellow with a small, firm white head. Nose is very fruit driven - tangerine, blood orange, apricot, peach. Much more hops than anticipated. Taste is predominately tangy styled fruits, light biscuit and caramel malts. A heap of apricot and lychee notes. Quite sweet fruits. Works well. Very sessionable. Great beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Goldy yellow, sml ’lager white head’. Smells.. Like more hops than a usual pilsner, grassy and citrusy, mildly sweet malts too. Tastes..fruity at first, then more citrus definition making it bitter, but fresh as, ay bro. The malts are mildly sweet as they smell. 5 from 5 good beers from this brewery, cheers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Int Beer Shop. This is a nice pilsner bearing in mind I’m not a lager fan. One is enough for me before I look for a more hoppy brew to have next. Above average but expensive here in Perth. I prefer Garage Project’s super hoppy pale ales.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours gold/amber with a fading white head.
Nose shows spicy and floral hops. Also some bready malt.
Pretty aggressive flavours. Very bitter. Some spicy hops and pine along with a soft grapefruit note. The sharp bitterness is overbearing.
Carbonation seems excessive.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pomeroy’s as part of a six taps in six days special that I managed to catch the tail end of. Put in my hand was a clear yellow-golden pint with limited head, which I attribute to gas pourage and temperature. Aromas of fruity citrussy hops, redolent of plenty of New Zealand’s (other) fine green export. Tangy tangelo and blood orange entice the drinker and this appears in the flavour with a lovely smack of bitterness.
It is something that is becoming a bit of a rarity in New Zealand brewing circles, a pilsner done well.
