As a lager, this is a good beer, but as a pilsner, I found it a tad disappointing. To me, the hops, as nice as they are, overpowered the silky-smooth, delicate malt backbone. I would have liked to appreciate the malt more.

Slight haze on this gold beer. Tidy white head. Light palate, smooth with a crispy trailing edge. Nice creamy malt with a decent level of orange hops. Touch of lemon. A little bitterness in the smooth finish which is also slightly dry. Pretty good Pils - could easily session this.

Good example of a pilsner. Nothing special but good if you want an organic pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Good floral hop aroma. Less fruity than the Tuatara pilsner.
Palate: Light-medium body. Great balance
Flavor: Balanced floral hop and malt with a medium level of bittering.
Comments: Was informed that this is a more German-styled pilsner relative to other NZ pilsners.

Sitting here reading the brewers description and trying to reconcile it with what is sitting in my glass. Not to say this is a bad beer, as it is actually quite nice and very drinkable and I couldn’t think of anything to say so looked to the commercial description for inspiration. Golden in colour, quite clean in the finish with a slight bitter after taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 330ml bottle on 26/12/2011. Pours a clear yellow with a small head. Has a modest aroma of malt, fruit and honey. The flavour starts out quite sweet, with more fruit and honey, but this is balanced out by a good dose of hops. A refreshing, high quality pilsner which, imo, has been underrated on here so far.
