3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden beer, small but persistent head, floral aromas as well as some not usual cheese ones. The body is light and the respective pilsner hop flavor is undeniable; however, the malt flavor is not strong enough and maybe is the only particularity. Overall is quite a good beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Viking Grace. Pale yellow, clear. Slight metallic, corn malty, continentally hopped nose. Feels nose-wise like your average european bulk pils/lager. Nice body though. Med light, Sparkling carbonation. Herby, slight old leafy hops mixed in that stream of somewhat tasteless malts. Ok for a bulk, quite enjoyable really.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden with a diminishing white head. Aroma is grain, sweet, a bit of grass, too. Medium, carbonated body. Flavor is more grain and sweet and less grass than I was expecting due to the aroma. Soft, round finish without the desired crisp bite of a Bohemian Pilsener (as my sixer of this was named). Still, decent lager for a hot afternoon.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Keg - Lake Bar, Wanaka. A clear golden amber colour with a medium sized, lacing and lasting white head. Clean, crisp, fine pale malt sweetness. Notes of grain, citrus, biscuit and grassy hop. Light to medium body, good length and intensity bitterness. Firm, refreshing mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle looks simple but good. Nice format. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts malty-spicy, modest dry, zippy, fruity hints of lemon. Finish mild but not washy, still fine spicy. Not bad!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Many thanks for this bottle to kappldav123. Clear gold thin white head. It’s fine. A little thin and watery some late hop sting.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The head is medium, the body gold. It smells malty, less hoppy, less interesting. The taste is malty, a bit hoppy-bitter, quite boring.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sweet corn, DMS and saccharine with a stagnant hoppiness and a dirtiness of dust bunnies. Harsh carbonation with equally harsh malt texture, something similar to warm high carbonic acid seltzer water cut with simple syrup. A lot of poorly made NA beers have this character. There’s no hop aroma, only a stale, leafy bitterness in the finish with lingering apple-y acetaldehyde.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle - pale gold with small white head. Doughy, earthy aroma, with something spicy. Definitely not like a pilsner, fairly drab taste, some sweetness, none of the hop aroma or taste.
