A clean and crisp Czech inspired pilsner brewed with a generous helping of noble european hops.

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Pours yellow, golden color with a small head. A bit floral and sweet nose, crisp taste with a nice, medium bitter finish. Perfect carbonation. Refreshing, but missing the extra hop kick of a pilsner. Nevertheless good.

mattyhennessy (360) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2014
Pours pale yellow with a small white head that fades quickly. Subtle aromas of crisp malt with some spice and straw-like notes. Flavour is quite clean and crisp but not as dry as most pilsners. There’s a subtle honey and buttery flavour. Low bitterness. Drinkable and enjoyable during warm weather, but nothing memorable.

Dervock (523) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
Tap - Pours golden with small white head. Aroma was dominated my bread and cereal malt. Taste was overly metallic, some grassy hop. Palate a bit light on.

It pours bright yellow, immediately diminishing head though it retains some fizz. There’s a slight honey aroma but really not much there, taste is equally uninteresting.

Muggus69 (1362) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2013
330ml bb 220314 Pale gold body with slightest haze. Bit of wispy lace hangs around. Mild aroma; husky cereal malts, bready yeast, faint hop citrus and diacetyl buttery character. Low carbonation, nice slickness adds extra weight to a medium body. Pilsner malts continue on the body, finishes with quite a low bitterness, subtle hop and yeasty character lingering. An ok drop, somewhat flawed.

gnoff (8119) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2013
Draught as part of a tasting paddle at Harts Pub, Sydney, on July 16, 2013.
As "Hawthorn Premium Pilsner".
Clear straw yellow to pale golden color, white head. Malty, dry, hoppy, herbal, fruity taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Herbal aftertaste. Sweet, malty, vegetable scent.

Westkyoto77 (542) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2013
Don’t usually drink a lot of pilsner, but this was pretty good after a long summers’ day. Light gold in colour, snow-white head. Silky body, slightly sour and grassy. Average carbonation. Went down a treat.

Rangi (626) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 16, 2013
An average pilsner. Nice clear pale colour. Crisp and slightly bitter. Nothing really to write home about other than it tastes how it should taste for a pilsner and would hit the spot when your thirsty.

mkel07 (3922) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2013
330ml bottle from Slow Beer. Clean and bright golden amber colour with a low Evelyn white head. Sweet fruity aromas with some pineapple in there. Strong crisp flavour that sits in the mouth well.

Bif (1600) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle- Pours a light golden color with a nice thick head that fades to some lacing. Mild aroma of fruit, bit of malt sweetness and a hint of grain. Taste as a bit of citrus with some malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, mild crispness, smooth and a bit refreshing. Fairly generic for the style. Easy drinking beer, good for a few.
