COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth all-malt strong New Zealand Pilsner with an enticing hop aroma of tropical fruits, styled to compliment authentic Indian cuisine. The perfect accompaniment to curry.

Ungstrup (30390) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2013
Bottled. A golden with a white. The aroma has notes of hops, spices, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, alcohol, hops, spices, ånd sirup, leading to a bitter finish. More like an IPA

3fourths (8598) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2014
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.

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 26, 2015
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.

skortila (4826) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2014
Bottled. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma is malty sweetish and citric. Clear, golden coloured beer with a white head. Taste is light bitter with slightly citric hops. Easy drinking.

maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is all toffee malt and caramel. A slight citrus undertone. Translates very well in the taste. Sweet honey and citrus throughout with a lingering toffee malt backing. Very nice stuff

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 31, 2014
The head is medium, body dark-gold. It smells maltintensive, hoppy, a bit alc., bit citrus. The taste is citrus-hoppy, bit alcoholic, malty.

ALLOVATE (2619) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2015
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)

Jimthechap (2057) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 17, 2014
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.

Cantabrian (944) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 27, 2013
What makes it a Pilsner? This is so good, so un-Pilsner... Grapes and passion fruit written all over. Adstringent, hoppy-tasting and smelling like an IPA. Easy and pleasant to drink. That would be my favourite Pilsner!

varanid99 (684) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2014
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
