Bottled from the brewery. Golden colour with thin head. Awesome taste, with honey, malt, biscuits taste. Unfortunately the palate is not as great, even if it’s pretty enjoyable.

Strangebrewer (1180) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
bottle, brought back from New Zealand from a friend. Poured hazy straw coloured with a thick white head, nice lacing. Fresh herbal hop aroma. Mouthfeel is average, a little tart. Flavour is quite dry, grainy, a bit metallic at the end but has a bready quality about it.

Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 20, 2010
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of straw and a bit of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of sulphur, malt, straw, and a bit of citrus, leading to a lightly bitter finish.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2009
looks nice - very pale but still with some depth of colour, nice creamy head. aroma is faint - bit of floral hops, but mainly glue, DMS, diacetyl. good maltiness and bitterness in mouth, but blanketed by thick DMS and diacetyl, and some appley fruitiness. when pilseners go wrong they really go wrong - anything but the crisp and dry beer it wants to be.

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with an average white head. No lace. Aroma of clean grains and light citrus, on the sweet side. Griany palate with a touch of honey sweetness. Finish is very bitter, leafy. Bitter enough to be a pilsener.

bozoNZ (758) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 12, 2009
500ml bottle. Looks the goods pale yellow, faint haze but the most brilliant persistant head I’ve seen in ages. Some weird moderate dms characteristics in the aroma. Flavours on the bitter side, slightly metallic and mineral with some lemon soap coating the cheeks. Different but I’m not sure all in a good way.

sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 24, 2009
Pours slightly cloudy, pale yellow with a soft, white head. Aromas are of lemon, passionfruit, pineapple and a floral hops. Hints of ginger spice and a straw-like malt. Flavours are dominated by a nice, hoppy bitterness which is brought down a notch by a honey sweetness. Some slight ginger in the flavours as well. Finishes dry and hoppy. Clean on the palate and very refreshing indeed!

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle (500ml). Poured clear yellow with a lose, rocky, white head which was fully diminishing. Aroma was of sweet malts with honey, cooked corn faint hoppy notes and a squeeze of lemon. Flavor was a light grassy hop bitterness with lemon citrus, sweet grainy malts and pleasant notes of weeds/grass in the finish. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a ok finish.
