Bottle. Pours a bright gold colour with a good white head, malty corn aroma, light citrus bitter taste, with a dry bitter finish.

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

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.

moderate hop bitterness and a light floralness, but otherwise a bit bland with a very mainstream lagerlike base. eh.

Pale blonde with fluffy white head and honey malt/ clean hops on the nose. Fairly sweet with clean bitterness, but still a touch thin.

Tap from Harrington’s brewery. A pale imitation of Czech Pilsener. Too much bitterness, no nice head. Not bad though, but won’t call it a pilsner!

500ml btl. Clear, light yellow pour with a short white head leaving minimal lace. Sweet nose. Light body and medium carbonation. Bread, straw - not too much here. Short, dry finish. For NZ pilseners, Mac’s Hop Rocker is miles ahead.
