Murray’s Rudeboy Pilsner has a distinctive crisp, fresh hoppy flavour that has made it a favourite among the country’s foodie community.

"The Rudeboy Pilsner is a very elegant lager with a classic biscuity malt backbone and assertive late hop character," says Head Brewer Shawn Sherlock. "It’s traditionally been available draught only, but now the beer is available in the bottle. It has been a real challenge to reproduce the popular draught beer in the bottled format but as a lover of traditional Czech Pilsner I’m really happy with how the bottled Rudeboy Pilsner presents."

The beer pours a pale straw colour with an almost meringue-like head. The intense citrusy aroma and flavour is delivered by the New Zealand Motueka and Pacifica hop blend, which is balanced by sweet Euro malt, and finishes with a refreshing bitterness.

Rudeboy is Murray’s interpretation of Pilsner made vaguely in the Czech style but with a New World twist. It pays homage to European brewing tradition using the old school lager brewing process of cold fermentation and extended conditioning periods, but the extensive late hopping takes this Pilsner in its own direction.

On tap at Murray’s brewpub. Pours golden yellow with a big head. Faintly sweet nose. Quite sweet for a Pilsner too, but in a good balance with the bitterness. A bit watery towards the finish. A good take on Pilsner if you ask me.

Hmm...looking at the packaging I think Murrays have got ’mod’ and ’rude boy’ confused. Close but not the same. Anyway on with the beer...330ml bottle into glass. Nice citric hop nose. Slightly hazy pale amber beer with medium carbonation, thin but solid white head. Creamy bitter taste followed by lingering intense bitterness. Really good.

Bottle from Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Linpur. Poured a crystal clear straw with a thin whire head. The arona is citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big zesty citrus grassy wood hop palate and a long light peppermint bitter finish. Moderate to light bodied with average carbonarion.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique December 2013. This was a lot better than I thought it would be given that I am not the worlds greatest pilsener fa. Good body and character from this beer.

I feel jipped as this one wasn’t exactly in fine form though I managed a fresh bottled sample. It produced up a misty, sandy, orange gold with little life at all. Head a tight wafer of white that receded completely after just a minute. Grassy, granola, hay-bale and freshly toasted malt mix on the nose with just a hint of lemon zest and creamed honey. Dusty, powdery mouthfeel, quite buttery with a pronounced honey on toast flavour coming through. Very light bodied with minimal bitterness and low floral, herbal hops in late. A perfume musk lingers gently between sips. Not altogether the tightest or cleanest Pilsner. One for a re-rate on draught at some stage would be great. (33cL, BB 13/12/14, BWS Willeton)

330ml bottle into pilsner glass. Slightly hazy straw yellow pour with a small white head providing a scanty lace. Nose has honey cereal malts with grassy and citrusy hops. Palate is lively and crisp with a refreshing dry hop bitterness and a hint of spiciness. This is a superior pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strange flavour for a pilsner. Normally my favourite type of beer. But clever name and packaging
