2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Spicy aroma on this one that is mainly sweetness and slight citrus with a cardboard like finish. A fraction under carbonated though which lets it down.
Appearance is about what you would expect with clear light colored body with tall white head.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’ve had this one in New Zealand on my honeymoon.
Plain pilsener from Monteiths. Watery, but still enjoyable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured a pale orange with yellow highlights with a decent size white fluffy head, which was mostly lasting. Aroma was moderately malty with some grain present and light citrus notes at the back. Flavor was light with mild maltyness and bitterness with some sweetness towards the end. Body was light with a watery/smooth texture and short finish.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Minimal sort of aroma, some hops maybe. Pours a clean golden body with a white head. Body is reasonably light. It has a nice hop bite to it; citrusy and grassy. Dry finish, tiny bit of lingering bitterness. Not much to it but pilsnerish enough to suffice.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle -- A pale yellow brew with a large, sudsy white head with poor retention. It lives up to its name (Monteith’s Lively Pilsner Beer) with the glass full of bubbles. Little lacing. Aroma is very lagerish and lightly malty with some fruit. Flavour leaves a bit to be desired, with some of that typical pils bitterness present but spoiled by a watery palate. This simply lacks oomph. Nothing speical and not as good as the other Monteith’s brews I’ve tasted.
