COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
PilsíNíThrills is the Garageís irreverent take on a classic European Pilsner, given extra kick with high-citrus American hops.

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!

maneliquor (3006) - 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

3fourths (7879) - 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 itís cheesy mustiness and pithiness but more Spalt-like in itís 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, itís 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.

Hop_Hedonist (231) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2013
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.

Jimthechap (1563) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 7, 2013
On tap at Pomeroyís 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 Zealandís (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.

jonnyguns (886) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours orange golden with small white head. Aromas of lemon, blood orange and other candied sweetness. Taste citrus hops with a surprising hit of bitterness. Solid beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kiwianer (3318) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 11, 2013
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

beer-yum (439) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 25, 2014
An enjoyable brew that makes good use of the US hops employed to give it a ítwistí. Not sure if that is the best use of them - but something to be expected from the Garage Project folks (they win some, they tie others)!

NBird (341) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2013
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.

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.
