Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a small white head. Very floral aromas. Light body, sweet malt taste with fresh saaz flavour that is surprisingly pronounced.

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
Tap @ brewery. Light coloured with floral nose. Light front and mid palate moving into malt and mildly bitter saaz hops with a very long finish for a pilsner.

Brewmeister78 (1) - - SEP 28, 2013 does not count
Gold and bold. This is a golden delight to pour with floral notes. Very easy to drink but the aftertaste may be too bitter for some. Perfect with my choice of snack this evening, fresh popped unsalted popcorn, this will be a delight at the end of a hot summer day

Sevenlee (1393) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours a orange with small white head. Aroma is malt, floral notes and saaz hops. Taste is light sweet leading to a dry hoppy finish. Not a bad pilsener but a little boring.

Maris (1019) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 From a 330ml bottle on 11/12/2012. Pours a clear light golden with a small head. Has a slightly weird aroma of grain, paint and chemicals. There is some sweet malt and fruit at the start which is bludgeoned by a surprisingly assertive, long hop bitterness. I’m not really sure what to make of this. There’s actually a fair bit going on with it, but it’s a bit on the harsh side.

Bif (1556) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle- pours a hazy copper color with a decent head that fades to nice lacing. Aroma of mild citrus, some grain and a dtrace of malt sweetness. Taste of grain and some malt sweetness and a bit of spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly moderate body, mild crispness and refreshing. Nice balance.: Not quite what I would call a pilsner but still quite enjoyable.

floydian1 (1057) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle. A clear amber-golden beer with a smallish white head. Aromas of grainy sweet malts, floral hops, some citrus. Nicely balanced flavour profile with the dry resinous Saaz hops coming through. Medium bodied with a thinnish texture and lively carbonation. A decent European-style pilsner from an Aussie brewer.

Davros (2025) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2011
Pours gold with a large lasting head. Nose shows spicy and floral hops with a huge sweet malt presence after including lots of caramel. Similar flavours however a bold bitterness balances out the malt. Lots of caramel, honey, nutty malt and piney hops. Carbonation is a little high. Very sweet and malty for a pilsner.
