COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Organic Malt and Hops to the style of a Bohemian Pilsner with our own Rogue Hop to give it an exciting strong yet lingering hop finish. A great one for a mouth feel challenge!

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Clear pale gold with a short head, hard to get more than a half centimeter from it, which is sadly typical of New Zealand beer. Has a *very* faint aroma but what’s there isn’t anything to enjoy: DMS gives it a radish / turnip / carrot note, there’s notes of chipped concrete, some lemon and lime gummy candies and a faint leafy green arugula note. Light body is thin and watery, carbonation is low, there’s little froth and no heft to the malt. Very plain, under-developed Pilsner with fermentation problems.

chinchill (1382) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2013
330ml bottle from a Harringtons mix 6 pack, best by stamped 10 Dec. 2014, served in a wine goblet. Pours very clear, light amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma: mainly earthy/floral hops; quite hoppy even for style. Flavor: nearly as hoppy than the aroma suggests, but only mildly bitter. Lasting hoppy aftertaste. Feel: Medium body with medium, crisp carbonation and a dry finish. O: hoppy, NZ style pilsner. Recommended.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 I have to agree with ’jimthechap’ on this one, it is also one of the best pilsners I have tasted in recent times. I really enjoyed this pilsner. It blows Speights triple hop, and Stokes McCashin pilsner clear out of the water, (and pilsner Urquell for that matter!). It’s not a complex pilsner, but has crisp clear notes of saaz hops to deliver that slightly bitter and distinct hop flavour, with a nice light and pale colour. Reference to the top fermented Bohemian style rocks. The alcohol content is spot on at 5.0 % alc./vol, and overall hats off to John and the Harrington boys. Splendid chaps, bloody good drop. Great new label too on 330ml bottle I might add.

The head is ok, the body blond. It smells sweet, malty, bit hoppy. The taste is bit hoppy, aromatic, malty, bit herb, bit boring. Medium

Cantabrian (762) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2013
Agree with Lisagirl below. It does have a nice Saaz type of hoppiness to it, but that is stitting on a rather ordinary lager base. The fact that it is organic made me feel magnanimous about my conribution to a pesticide-free land, lower yields on agricaulture and higher prices on produce.

lisagirl (262) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 22, 2013
moderate hop bitterness and a light floralness, but otherwise a bit bland with a very mainstream lagerlike base. eh.

Oakes (11831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
Gold w gentle sparkle. Herbal hop and a touch of honey. Light floral character, hints of malt, mild bitterness.

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 18, 2012
Pale blonde with fluffy white head and honey malt/ clean hops on the nose. Fairly sweet with clean bitterness, but still a touch thin.
