A Distintive flavoursome beer, that ’sharpens’ the appetite, this is a traditional Bavarian pilsner, using German malts and European hop varieties. Light golden in colour with a crisp white head, round dry fruity flavours and mild bitterness, followed by a lasting hop aroma. this pilsner is a good ’all rounder’ and easily enjoyed with a curry or spicy foods. 4.3 to 4.5% abv

heyden (137) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 20, 2014
Citrus aroma. Golden clear colour. Light malty taste with medium/low bitterness; not a strong flavourful pilsner but goes down a treat on a hot summers day. Very minimal dryness; high drinkability

Can courtesy of the brewer, shared with beerjustice. Clear blonde with a white head that slips down nicely. Lots of nz hops some citrus and hay. Mouth is hoppy and easy to drink. Finishes dry. Interesting, would have again, but nothing special.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 20, 2008
Pouring from the can, it is a clear gold but with no head whatsoever. The aroma is very light, maybe just a touch of tropical fruits. The malty palate is reasonably clean, but I find the flavour to be a little soapy and not much to distinguish it, and the finish is a non event. Lacks character.
