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.

A-- Poured a straw yellow with a touch of haze. A few floaties in the glass and a just under a half a finger head. Decent sticky lacing and a cloud white head. S-- Floral and bready. Good combo. Maybe a bit too perfume like of a smell but the bread does offset it. A little bit of hop and does smell a bit of fresh lemon. More it breathed the more the citrus opened up. T-- Hops jumped right out at me. Bit of pine in the back of my mouth and a little tartness from the lemon. Did not get too much of the bread in the taste, just a small bit of sweetness. M-- Very flavorful. Well balanced and leaves a APA feel in the mouth. A lot of citrus, pine and hop feel for a while after finishing. Nice amount of carbonation and creamy in the mouth. O-- Good session beer

Had on tap at murrays at manly. A decent version of a pilsener, but not as big as some of their other beers. But it’s perfect to have on a hot day sitting on the balcony looking out on to manly beach.

On tap at the Murrays pub, Manly March 2012. Golden with a slight whit head and moderate fizz. Aroma of hay, tropical fruits and a touch of sweet malt. Flavour had more fruit, a touch of jarring butter, leading to a decent bitter finish. Overall, good.

motelpogo (7171) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 21, 2012
bottled, at the old sando in newtown. much paler than a czech pils and surprisingly bright with a quickly disappearing head; aroma of self-raising flour and white grape with only the faintest hint of saaz; some tropical flavours - pineapple and lychee; with a soft grassy bitter finish; a pretty loose interpretation of a pilsener but pleasant drinking nonetheless

Labled as Rudeboy pilsner at the brewery tap. Poured pale straw and a minimal white foam and medium carbonation level. The Aroma was floral and herby and as the beer warmed up some bready malts came through. The flavour was soft and delicate with some hop characters showing it was quite well balanced and easy to drink...not bad at all.

Sevenlee (1505) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2012
On tap at Murrays at Manly named Rudeboy pilsener. Aroma is sweet malt and citrus fruits. Taste is also fruity with grapefruit notes and a good sturdy bitter finish. Great pilsener.

(on tap at brewery, but as Rudeboy Pilsner - which I suspect is a rebadging of this beer... http://www.murraysbrewingco.com.au/our_beers/our_b Clear straw with some white head. The aroma is subtle and pleasant - subtle sweet candy and floral hints. Light body, well carbonated. The taste is very soft for a pilsner - distinct and pleasant sweetness (candy / peardrops?). Pleasant easy drinking beer.

Tap. Gold with a medium white head. Delicate floral aroma with a some bready grain, a little pepper and lemon. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Light grainy malt is moderately sweet with a little lager sourness. Modest bitterness. Neither particularly bold or crisp, but OK.

What a crackin Pils. Grainy malt & zesty bitterness with a little sweetness in the middle of a lenghty hoppy finish. This is a great fresh, crisp summer pils. Spot on.
