Brewed from soft water, pale malts and bittered with fine Saaz hops, this is an excellent example of a traditional Czech Pilsener style. Lagered for 8 weeks at near freezing temperatures the result is crisp and clean with a delicate hop bouquet.

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
OLD NOTES NOV 6, 2003 Sweet hop aroma, pours out golden, clean, smallish head. Nothing outstanding so far. Such a good flavour though. A very solid pilsner. Full body taste, sweet and crisp yet with a hint of hop bitterness.Tap or bottle.

sinkas (293) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2007
Bottle, Perth, WA Looks soon to retire this beer, as the local brewery winds up. crisp and with a real hop aroma and faint flavour, far better than most other Aussie full strengh lagers, unfortunalty totally forgotten by both fosters and the public.

highlandlad (1477) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2005
Moderate, unremarkable Australian pilsener. Pale gold colour, lasting short head. Some apples in a generally dry hoppy aroma. Creamy mouthfeel, bit of fruit on the tongue and a light bitter finish. (Bottle)

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2004 9 June 2003 - Straw golden colour, with low’ish head that retains. Lovely complex floral bouquet. Slight honey and hop flavour. Lasting palate with a nice light but not thin finish.

gregcromwell (8) - Coorabell, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2004 does not count
This beer is hard to find..especially fresh. When I have had a chance to give it a go it delivers a great pilsener taste. A clean well put together beer. Nice aroma with a balanced finish.

Spanner (60) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2004
Malty, with an aromatic hops bouquet, this has a pleasant, dry finish. Spanner.

Trogdor (197) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2004 Nice aromas, predominantly zesty/sweet floral smelling hops and honey/caramel accented malt. Light golden with low to medium carbonation and small but nice head. Honey and slightly malty flavours predominant with hints of floral hops. Light but not too thin body with slight bitterness. Overall this is a very drinkable variation of the pilsner, well balanced flavours and aromas, one of my favourite pilsners and a great summer session beer, highly recommended.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2003
Very clear with little head retention. Aroma is clean and lightly malty. Lots of hop flavour balanced by a very nice malt character. Not overly complex or anything but I could drink a *lot* of these. Why does it rate so low?

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2003
This beer has a light yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a light body.
