2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks a light golden colour in the glass, not perfectly clear, average head retention. Aroma is sweet and malty, with some skunky hops too. It has a fairly full body for a pilsener, well hopped and reasonably malty. However the spicy hops and a skunky sweetness dominate the palate, which is less than welcome. Pretty average to be honest.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent pils. Starts out with a good floral hoppy nose, but the flavour is a bit of a let down. At times there is a good bracing bitterness but this is soon overwhelemd by a vague trashy sweetness. Thsi beer has potential.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale gold, hazy, with a very brief head giving a little lace at the top of a pilsner glass, but disappearing completely before halfway. The nose and palate are all about malt-- VERY malty, almost vegemite in character. Enjoyable, but one-dimensional.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A hazy orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is malty and slighlty sour, while the flavor is sweet malty and slighty hoppy. Boring.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A hazy golden beer with a white head. Sharp buttery and citrusy aroma. Rancid malt flavor with butter notes. Quite sweet with a sour tone of infection behind the sweetness. Not very good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
By no means the best beer in the Grand Ridge range but a decent stab at a pilsenser. It looks great. Lemony gold, with a formidable head. Light, zesty Saaz characters in the nose. Refreshing and very clean on the tongue. Decent slug of hops in the finish. Some strong tea-like characters - in fact, tea with lemon. (Bottle)
