4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a bright straw yellow with a profuse sticky white head. Absolutely beautiful pour, a torrent of carbonation swirls around the glass for the duration of the liquid. Wonderful aroma, peppery and dry with fresh cut grass and citrus zest. Absolutely spot on, dry and zesty with fresh cracked pepper and citrus rind. Spicy bitterness leaves just the right grip on the tongue. Light and dry in body and palate with grated citrus zest on the finish.

33 cl bottle @ HBF’13
Aroma has soapy citrus – feels like a witbier. Foamy palate is too high on CO2. Flavour has soapy citrus, some grainy notes and grass. More like witbier than a pils.

From AC Beer Fest. Odd pils. The aroma is grassy, sour, barnyard, a little off. The appearance is hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is sour, grassy, earthy, yeasty. The finish is sour, yeasty, spicy, a bit like unsweetened champagne. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught in Dunedin, NZ.. Golden body beneath a medium short lasting white head. Nose and flavours of grainy malts balanced by a mild grassy hop bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Lacks the dry hop finish of the best German-style pilsners but still ok.
