3.1
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
ALLOVATE (2466) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2011
Medium gold, dull and seminally hazy (chill haze?). Lots of eddying streams of carbonation, adorned by a snow-white, resilient and tight head of foam. Dusty, herbal Saaz nose, lightly spiced, peppery and zesty, very clean. Very light, delicate and obscenely crisp on the swallow. Assertively bitter, herbal and grassy back end, a lot of pepper and palest, dry malt fill out the rest. This is as clean as a whistle. Nothing to whinge about per se. A very easy drinking colonial pilsener. (34cL, no date stamp, Thirsty Camel, Butler)

jolo (921) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 7, 2011
Bottle. A clear light yellow colour with a smallbubbly white head. An aroma of malt, hay, grass and light hops. The taste is sweet with a bitter finish. Light body and carbonation

madmitch76 (16088) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2011

Very bland and watery Pils that only has a crisp dry finish worth any note at all.

eManu (460) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2010
Pours a light gold color with a very small white head, Aroma is almost nothing, but some light malts and corn. Flavors is very light, watery, malts and corn. Light carbonation, light bitterness. Almost nothing here, not worth it.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 7/20
floydian1 (1057) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 4, 2010
Bottle. Appearance is clear bright yellow with a brief white head. Weak nose and taste of sweet golden malts and floral hops. Tastes more like a bland Australian macro-lager than a genuine pilsner.

2.5
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Bottle. Ugly straw color but has decent head retention. Aroma is fresh and mildly hoppy with inviting grass and herbal hops. Palate is lightly sticky and the beer is thin and watery. Sweeter flavors than expected including health cereal and corn flakes. Those hops I smell are not coming out. Not a very well developed beer.

340ml bottle from the Wine Company, Slough. Straw with a fast fading white head; leafy hop aroma; malt flavour; gently bitter finish. Plain and simple and well-balanced.
