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

rlgk (17912) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2015
SBWF 2015. Clear golden beer with a quite nov´ce lasting off-white head. Malty caramel aroma, grassy, peach, pine, bread, some grass. Bready hop flavor, caramel, biscuits, peach, grass, some passion fruit. Hoppy citrus finish with caramel notes. Quite ok.

jercraigs (9722) - 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.

3fourths (9106) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Multiple pints on tap. Lightly hazed gold body with a short white head. Snazzy, snappy hop aroma: green, vegetal, peppery / spicy, Saaz-like in it’s cheesy mustiness and pithiness but more Spalt-like in it’s lemon juiciness (I have no idea what hops are used, they say all American). Luscious body, wonderfully soft malt, clean Pilsner malt biscuit / baked bread presentation. Lightly sweet, strongly hoppy but not strongly bitter. A lemon balm bomb of a hoppy Pilsner, not a touch of hop resin whatsoever, it’s expressive and clean and the soft carbonation and malt contrast well with the pithy, almost-bitter lemon and passion fruit character. Similar in appearance, body, aroma and flavor to Evil Twin Yellow Cab.

[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

mkel07 (5097) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique December 2013. One of the tamer Garage Project Beers this one pours a golden amber with a clean white head. There are some hop aromas instead of the usual grain aromas I find in most pilseners and it has a fair bit of flavour as well.

nickd717 (4113) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 28, 2016
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.

maneliquor (3483) - 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

hawthorne00 (3455) - 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.
