ALLOVATE (2503) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2013
Produces up with what seems like a bad case of chill haze. A shrouded sunny medium gold with a frothy and loose white head of foam. Pineneedles and roughly bruised, bitter green herbs dominate the nose with underlying wafts of lychee, pear and lavender. On the palate it is assertively hopped but balanced by a wonderfully dry pilsner malt graininess and toastiness from that Carahell. Light in body with moderate carbonation that sees it move with haste across the tongue. Big bitter peak, raspy and herbaceous on the swallow leaving a lasting dryness of grain and hop. Long camphorous, nettle and pineneedle linger, quite spicy and raw. Very refreshing stuff. I loved this one. Drinks well even as it warms and showcases the wonderful Saaz hop with artistinal brilliance. A solid Pilsner! (47,3cL can, date indistinguishable on base, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Davros (2106) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2013
Pours gold with a lasting head. Nose shows lemon/dill sorachi-like notes, soft bready malt and banana. Quite nice. Flavours include more bready notes, soft dill and spicy hops. Enjoyable stuff. Carbonation could be higher.

hawthorne00 (2626) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2013
Can, 10C. Very pale yellow gold with a modest white head that fades a fair bit. Aroma of lemon, grass, grain. Light bodied, quite high carbonation. Grainy sweetness is restrained and almost austere, bitterness quite high with grass, lemon and a little pepper. Doesn’t taste quite like a Czech beer, but tastes for a change like whoever made it actually likes pilsener. Good stuff.
