3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chilled and into a tulip it goes, quick-like as it erupted once the cap came off. Shimmering, honey orange with a quickly settling sediment. Head is a good two inches of silky white foam that lasts and laces well. Light honey and toasted bread amongst spicy, herbal hops on the nose. Beautifully dry and hoppy in back with a rich malty sweetness upfront. Chewy body, well rounded with spritzy and light carbonation. Good length with medial bitterness and a touch of tangerines in the aftertaste. Very good drinking. An enjoyable and bold pilsner. (33cL, no date stamp, the Intíl Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry, crisp yeasty, light floral citrus palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Iím sure itís a fine beer to accompany a curry, but then again, so is water.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Letís set the scene: Beer from the fridge after a day playing cricket and having just mown the lawns before warm spring rain started falling. Iím at the table with a lager in front of me. Iím expecting something cold, malt driven but vaguely floral. What I got was a pils as close to what it is supposed to be originally. Brassy golden colour with a skim of bright white marshmallowy head. The aroma is of caramel-malts, buttercups and herbs. The taste is strong and malty with nods toward tangerine, roses, spices and turkish delight with a finish that is dry and spicy. Thereís more to this beer than meets the eye - the label suggests a match toward curries, and yes I can see that. It is drinkable and even quaffable but it sits on a higher plane that takes it out of the after-cricket and lawnmower lagers... which I like.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep gold pour with a decent off white head. Nose is malt, more malt, a little passionfruit and lemon. Taste is malty, slightly sweet, with a little fruitiness, and a little bitter at the end. Easy drinking

The head is medium, body dark-gold. It smells maltintensive, hoppy, a bit alc., bit citrus. The taste is citrus-hoppy, bit alcoholic, malty.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Metal, apples, stale crackers, DMS cauliflower and cabbage, orange gelatin. Medium body, syrupy, low bitterness, sour, seemingly low sweetness and low carbonation. Wet dog hair and nuts and granny smith apples. A pointless beer.

Beautiful looking beer. The typical pilly flavours are soft around the edges and bleed into one another and carry an extra hint of something I canít quite put my finger on. Is it Cardamom? Nice beer. Itís actually pretty warming for a Pilsner.
