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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 330ml champagne-type brown bottle with BB of 22/5/15. It pours clear gold with a medium sized tightly packed white head. Nose offers sweet grainy malts, grassy and citrusy hops and a soft peppery spiciness. Flavour is similar with a decent crisp refreshing dry hop bitterness. Palate is medium bodied and oily with a lively mouthfeel. A decent German-style pilsner (rather than the advertised Bohemian if you ask me).

(Bottle) Clear pale golden with short-lived loose white head. Aroma has notes of cardboard, grass and pepper. Light body with nice bright carbonation. Taste has quite a bit of pleasant light maltiness with some peppery spice developing and some good nice bitterness in the finish. It’s richer than I expect for the style, but it works pretty well.

Cool bottle, but a little underwhelming. Aromas of wheat and hay, with a super-light, crisp and dry body. Went down nicely with spicy Vietnamese food, but was a little lacking in adventure.

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.

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.
