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!

There isn’t a hop harsh bite that you might be thinking you’d be getting with this style. The bold hop aroma does not translate well into hop taste on the palate, but the overall flavour is very even and makes this a very drinkable beer of the style. I’d like more of that rough bite thing, but then I would. At the end of the glass though nothing really stand out memorable, it’s just another lager beer.

Unlike some other posters, I got a big 3 finger head, although it was frothy and didn’t stick around. The appearance and aroma are very clean, light malt dominates. Taste is light, mouthfeel thin. The flavours ARE there, they just lack cojones. One for the ladies. No offense.

Finally tried this after a handful of enthusiastic recommendation. To be honest I’m disappointed. It’s a pretty boring pilsner, similar to Boundary Road or Mac’s offerings but more expensive. A little bit fruity, a little bit malty, some grass, too much carbonation and too light palate. Much prefer Pilsner Urquell which can be found cheaper.

A pretty clean pilsner with light citrus and tropical notes. Quite light on the palate.

500ml bottle with updated label, aroma is unassuming malt & hops, while the taste is luvly hoppy flavours & lingering without being overbearing as I sort of expected

Nice clear pour, limited hop aroma, mainly malt with some sweetness. Taste is clean as expected mainly dominated by malt character with a light lingering sweetness, maybe crystal malt? Overall a sessionable beer.

lesifflebiere (1383) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Bière ambrée, tirant presque sur le brun pâle, avec une limpidité relative et une minceur à toute épreuve. Film de mousse en surface. La bouche est mince également, avec les malts pils très apparents. Manque d’amertume, les houblons dorment au gaz. Une bonne grosse dose de plantes vertes, et la pédale douce sur les malts, et nous aurions ici une pils très décente ; en attendant, c’est l’ennui.

3fourths (8407) - 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.
