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.

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

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle. Clearish straw, finger of frothy white head which sticks nicely to the glass. Very gentle citrus and biscuit like aromas. A touch of fruit to begin, followed by long biscuit malt through the front and mid palates. A nice injection of cleansing citrus and hop bitterness toward the end. A very flavoursome and perfectly balanced pilsner, which is something of a rarity.

KeefOz (1220) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2014
BB 07/01/15. Poured a clear pale gold colour with a one- to two-finger white frothy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation high with many mall bubbles forming trails. Aroma of malt with a hint of citrus. Taste slightly malty with hops bitterness. Light body. Dry with a long hops bitterness finish. Ordinary.

From a bottle. Fruity aroma, smooth with hoppy flavours, not a regular pilsner but still quite a good drop.

drpimento (2632) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Poured perhaps a tad warm, with a modest off-white head that soon settled and some lace. Color is a clear grain amber with some bubble trails. Aroma has a hint of butterscotch, then it’s malt, fresh beer. Flavor loses the butterscotch, brings out malt, bitter, carbonic tang, all the classic pils qualities in the just right amounts. Also some spice. Body/carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, taper slow and balanced and is very drinkable. Wish I had more.

Maris (1225) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 24/1/2014. Pours a clearish medium golden with small head. Has a pleasant light fruity aroma. In the mouth and you get bready and biscuity malt and sweet stone and citrus fruit, capped off by a medium hop bitterness. Has a fullish body and average carbonation. Doesn’t really present as a typical pilsener to me, but it’s very refreshing and enjoyable brew none the less.
