I actually thought this had a tettnanger quality rather than saaz, but I have noticed that there is a change in character from batch to batch. One of the good things about this type of beer I suppose. Overall a good beer to have at the Lord, good crispness at times and quite a reasonable balance.

5/4: Nice aroma, spice and citrus in there. Nice hop flavour/bitter, well balanced with sweetness of malt. More of a german-style lager than a pilsner though. Nice body (dont know bout the thin water everyone else is talkin bout?). I personally liked it.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2003 Much respect out to Ecz, Duff and Motelpogo on this one. Water = yes. Unremarkable = no doubt. The hops be misplaced making it taste something like a XXXX hopped with Saaz. But me have to say that it was ok to watch cricket on the pub tele wit anyhow.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2005 Amber colour, mild caramel aroma with unexciting caramelly, sweet flavour, not much hop evidence. Decent palate nice rich and full mouthfeel. My vote goes to this being an APA and a fairly dull one at that, why does a place like this go to the trouble of brewing their own beers yet serve them at sub zero temps so you canít taste them? Maybe Iíve just answered my own question, maybe they donít want you to taste them....

eczematic (1322) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2005 well one things for sure and this aint no pilsener. at the lord nelson they seem to have an everchanging array of beers of fluctuating quality behind an unchanging set of names. it seems to be definitely an APA now. pleasant light amber colour with a bit of haze, thin collapsing head. smells of toffee and cascade, tastes very similar - crystal malt sweetness balances the grapefruit rather than malt guts as with LCPA. moderate bitterness - mid30s IBUs Iím guessing. solid and clean, easy to sink.

(Draught - I think itís only available on tap though) Again, call me a pleb but I didnít mind this. Yes itís basic but it sure is better than most basic Aussie lagers/pilseners. And by a good argin as well. NOTE: I found the Saaz to be reasonably prominent, maybe my batch was particularly good.

Very watery like eczematic says, hints of fruit, but they disapera to quickly to be noticed, at least its easy to drink though.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2012 on tap at the lord nelson. some light pine and tropical fruit in the aroma but no real guts and i was getting sick of it towards the end of my pint.
