3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - an easy drinking old style pilsner. Citrus aromas and grassy flavours with noticable Saaz hops, but not too much that it overpowers the flavour. Low carbonation makes this beer easy to drink a few in a session.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft AIBA 2003: I liked this one, firmly malty, yet soft at the same time, citrusy floral saaz on the finish, well balanced.

Very interesting pils. Fruit characters uncommon in the style come through, and an excellent long, dry, finish. Almost tastes like there's something in it, but there can't be with a pilsener, right? Reinheitsgebot and all that?

Bottle - Clear gold. Frothy white head. Low to medium carbonation. Smooth, soft mouth feel. Sweet, slightly citrussy, rich in floral hop flavour, (sazz). A hint of musk. Low to medium bitterness. Very nice!

From a 330ml bottle on 8/10/2010 (label says bottled 20/7/2010). Has quite a strong grassy and slightly floral aroma. Has some bready notes and a fair bit of honey in the flavour, and has a decent hoppy finish. A pretty good pilsener which would be quite sessionable.

nfob03. i would struggle in a blind tasting to distinguish between this and the st arnou pilsener. mild sweet saaz aroma, pretty sweet with some late bitterness. served way too cold, if you're going to make a czech-style pilsener why not serve it at cellar temperature like the czechs do?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2004 Rather yellowy-green looking and rather pale. Decent head. Fruity, slightly hoppy aroma with a rather thin body but decent malt flavour and mildish bitterness. Slight astringency in finish. Not Holgate’s best work, but OK.
Rerate: Had it on tap at Mac's and it was pretty good. Less hop character than I would like but a really nice soft maltiness. Again, VERY pale.

pale straw yellow, short lasting head. aroma of lager/sulphur , floral hops, with the malt in the background. The pilsner malt come out more in the flavour. A pretty good balance with the hop flavour, though the hops are a bit more subdued than i have had in other "western" pilsners. Finishes dry, although not all that bitter. moderately low carbonation. not bad

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Draught at AIBA, Melbourne. Hazy golden. Lightly grassy nose. Dryish and crisp with an interesting combination of deep papery malt and hard aromatic crystal malt. The hops with aren’t very noticable in the aroma sparks a pleasantly bitter finish. A good thrirst quencher!
