3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of our favourite stops on our Tasmania tour. The owner has committed himself to providing a total sensory experience with his Morilla Estates winery, restaurant, microbrewery, accomodations, and gallery. He has succeeded on all levels. The wines are terrific, the accomodations were the best we had on our whole trip, the food was amazing, and all of the beers are good, and some are even outstanding. The bottles are nicely designed, resembling little champagne flagons, and the labels are beautifully artistic. The average beer drinker is not the marketing target here. I thought this was an outstanding pilsner. It pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a thick dense foamy head that ringed the glass to the bottom. Very floral, grassy, with a solid bitter punch that keepd this true to style. Fantastic!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a clear light amber with a very small white head. Subtle tones of lemon, spices and floral hints. Light floral notes in the taste with touches of citrus. Palate is fantastic - light and soft carbonation with a slight bitterness coming through adding to the balance of the beer. Very good pils

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tried at the Tassie Beerfest then later that afternoon at the brewery. Clear gold body with lasting white head. Fruity hoppy aroma, not too sweet in the taste, balance isn’t too bad just needs a bit more zip.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 Bottle. Gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma of light honey, spicy hops, some earth and citrus. Fullish body with firm malts, less honey than the aroma, hints of berries and lingering spicy bitterness. A part from the berries, fairly traditional pils of the P. Urquell rather than the Budvar type. Fresh and very good. [3.7]
Bottle, about 10C. Another one I still like, it seems (although I did have one on the Tassie ferry a while back that was too cold and too old). Deep gold with a white head that lasts quite well. Quite rich and slightly toasty malt, honey, spicy finish with firm bitterness.

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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours gold with a large fading head.
Nose shows lemony, spicy and floral hops with some soft bready malt in the background.
Flavours instead show a grainy, cardboard character, although there is some bready malt underneath along with some more hops. Finishes very dry with a bold bitterness.
Carbonation is rather high.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Parkhill cellars. Not bad, but aroma is too subtle. Aroma is floral, with some band-aid. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head.
