COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

bmeup (562) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2010
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.

Mjollnir (391) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2010
330mL bottle. Pours hazy straw yellow with a dense and persistent white head that leaves some thick lacing. Floral and grassy aroma. Slightly sweet, medium bitterness. Light bodied, average carbonation, fairly smooth with a long grassy finish.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - AUG 6, 2010
I’m a bit iffy on the condition of this, as there wasn’t too much in the hop presence, but lots of honey and biscuit malts. Full bodied. Nice lacing. Good easy drinking but not too pilsnerish.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a large white frothy head over a clear yellow-amber body. Aroma of bready-grain maltyness and resinous hops. Finishes with a permeating bitterness. A nice pilsner.

davidm (1978) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Bottle. Very good pilsner. Aroma of banana, and also caramel. Flavour is long-lasting, and it has nice bitterness. Medium body, and oily in the palate. Yellow, cloudy and bubbly, with a fizzy white head that disappears.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a short white head that quickly shrinks to surface cover. Aroma and flavour are pretty similar: hoppy with notes of citrus, yeast, bubblegum, malt, clove, tropical fruit and a little sweet spiciness. Mouthfeel is slick and dry with some mid-palate sweetness and a medium to long bitter finish. A very good example of what a pilsner should be like. The guys at Murrays certainly know what they’re doing.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2009
Poured a lovely slightly cloudy ornage with a smallish white head. Lots of hops on the nose with the typical US hop variety aromas. Lots of citus & pine / resinous type aromas. Flavour is once again about the hops with a little malt quite late. Quite a good beer

Nicko (198) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle, poured with a massive frothy head, opaque orange body. I liked this one, despite having a somewhat muddled definition of what a pilsener is, thanks to the liberal over (mis)use here of the word. Sweet floral saaz aromas, and nice bitterness too.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours a darker golden with a lively white head. The aroma is extremely floral with grapefruit, berries, lychee, melon and citrus notes, and biscuit malt thrown in as well. Very nice! The flavour is biscuit and beautiful tropical fruit as expressed by the aromatics. Extremely crisp and refreshing, this one is very quaffable! Medium bodied and good carbonation. Hoppy, bitter finish. This pils is spot on.
