COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with a blend of Australian Pilsner and German specialty malts and generously hopped with the noble Czech aroma variety, Saaz, this very pale lager demonstrates the finest elements of this classic European style of beer that are expressed through elegant yet uncomplicated malt and hop characters. Fermentation is carried out under cool conditions proceeded by a long period of lagering conducted over several weeks at a very low temperature leading to the development of the delightfully mellow aroma and flavours found in this beer. The crisp malt body is balanced by a moderately high, yet clean, slightly lingering bitterness accompanied by a gentle spiciness.

Pyobon (1297) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2016
(Bottle) Pours slightly hazy amber with short-lived white head. Little aroma, but what there is was cardboard. Light bodied, well carbonated. Some sweet light malt at the start, quickly replaced with grassy hops and then some decent bitterness. Nice pilsner - this bottle was reduced, not sure why but maybe old stock, so aroma and appearance may have deteriorated.

Brodies_Best (269) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 16, 2014
On tap at Meatball and Wine Bar. Pours light golden with short white head. Sweet citrus aroma. Taste is fresh and sweet. Light dry aftertaste. Well balanced batch

Very light coloured, piney in the schnoz. Classic pilsner malt flavours. Not my cup of beer really.

Bottle from Canberra Cellars/Bottle-O Belconnen. Pale amber, white head, a nice enough Euro-style lager, pilsner malt and noble hop characters, just doesn’t excite me much.

Dervock (967) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle - pours golden with big head that settles down to a thin dense head. As soon as I popped the lid it smelled right, nice fresh pine resiney hop aroma. Interesting hop flavour up front and then am slow building bitter finish, sharp on the front of the palate. Crisp and clean across the palate.

Rangi (670) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2013
This was awesome at the time of drinking. Cold, refreshing, no need to think just drink. Nothing to write home about but it was what a pilsner should be I suppose.

KeefOz (1533) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2013
Poured a clear pale amber colour with a two- to three- finger white foamy head that diminished quickly and left a sudsy lacing. High carbonation with many trails of small to medium sized bubbles. Aroma of sourish malt and a trace of hops. Taste dominated by hops bitterness from start to finish. Light body. Long bitter finish. Not my style.

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2013
Excellent example of a pilsner. An aromatic bouquet, floral grassy precedes a beer with a smooth mouthfeel. Malts balance well with the hops and it finishes with a bitterness that is slightly harsh.

Bif (2044) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head that fades to some lacing. Clean aroma of some citrus, malt sweetness and fresh grain. Taste of mild citrus with some malt sweetness and fresh grain. Light bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp, smooth and refreshing, with a decent balance. A pleasant beer to enjoy and a summer day.
