2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
POINTS there for the beer bottles and labels of this Tasmanian brewhouse. The concept of using local artists to clothe the bottles is inspiring and I reckon, personally, I think this one is the creme de la creme. So..., the beer.. not as important now. Ahem, off we go. Lifeless pour - tread carefully ALLO, it has a good label. Headless, still, chill haze, orange, dull. Cordial-like and fresh squeezed lemon nose, watery, light musk. Watery, soapy, well hopped to its benefit. I can see where this one was going but someone got lost navigating! Malt is minimal, dry, husky with a doughy, floury yeast note. The noble, whole hop bitterness I do love but for some reason I’d prefer it in a soup over its use in this pilsner. Conflicted, can’t stand it and yet are wanton of another.

Just ok. Didn't think it was all that special. Not worth writing home about.
--- Beer in my belly makes me hoppy.

Not usually a fan of pilsner, but this one is refreshing. Clean and crisp yellow appearance with a white head. Slight hop finish. Some citrus flavours.

Pours a light, clear, golden yellow with finger of fluffy white head. Slightly floral and fruity nose with a bit of spice. Taste is fruity, with a bit of citrus and peach, and a very spicy noble hop bitterness on the finish. Carbonation is spot on, and mouthfeel is the fuller side of light. I’m really enjoying this, and I’m not usually a fan of pilsners.

A reasonable pilsner. A bit too hoppy for my taste, it does have the caramel sweetness of the east European varieties but lacks a bit of balance.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml bottle
Clear straw yellow color. Quick fading white head. Lots of visible carbonation bubbles.
Fresh grass, malt, lemon detergent
Little bit of hop bitterness but malt and grass stand out. Not real pleasant taste as a bit too much lemon.
Creamy in mouth and well carbonated. Finishes clean and with touches of lemon grass.
Once through the really odd taste it is OK. Better stuff around.

Unpleasant beer. Very light on taste and I agree with michclark that it has a foul aftertaste. Not a good pilsener.
