Draft. Yes! This beer is PILS. Youíll get what you expect from such a beer but now with the íthrillsí of flavours, bitterness, little aromaís, fruit notes and a short fresh finish. Maybe to short. But this is a good pils, the way I like pils. Go Garage Project!

The head is good, the body blond. It smells malty, bit dusty. The taste is malty, hoppy, nice, maltaromatic, bit fruity, hoppy, good balanced. 3.6

Brodies_Best (263) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 4, 2013
Pours light golden clear with not much head. Aroma is light and peachy, almost like white wine with woody undertones. Not much in the taste. Bitter and could be a gin and tonic

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. Iíd 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.

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!

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.

maneliquor (3406) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2013
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

Goldy yellow, sml ílager white headí. 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.

Bottle from Int Beer Shop. This is a nice pilsner bearing in mind Iím 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 Projectís super hoppy pale ales.
