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

Maris (1026) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 19/3/2011. Has a slight grainy, grassy malt aroma with a touch of lemon. In the mouth, it’s quite sweet, with a quite sharp lemony hop finish. Okay, but nothing special.

highlandlad (1421) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2011
Underwhelming Bohemian pils. A reasonable thirst-quencher if there’s nothing else around but it seemed too sweet for the style and not especially true to its source of inspiration. Found a bottle quite cloying by the end. Rheumy gold with a slight haze and a soft but lasting head. Some hay in the aroma with sweet, lightly floral notes - violets I guess - plus cookie dough. Smells too sweet for a Bohemian and any Saaz is muted. Slightly grabby mouthfeel. Lemony hops, over-sweet mid-palate and a pinch of salt in the finish. Reasonable bitterness. (330ml bottle from Australian Microbeer Club)

One of the finest Czech Pilsners avail in Aus at the moment... Big floral noble hop nose, brilliant malt backbone, nice spicy finish. Get it and enjoy

Davros (2041) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2010
Pours pale amber with a small quickly fading head. Nose shows spicy, floral hops with a hint of banana and lots of sweet malt with a little bready character. Nice! Flavours are not quite as enticing, with that bready malt changing to grainy malt. Spicy, grassy hops remain however which are very pleasant. Carbonation is a little high for my liking.
