COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Pilsner, with its spicy/citrus hop character and sweet biscuitty malt balance, is an intense lager experience. Big on flavour and aroma, enjoy on its own or with your favourite barbequed food.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2009
Pale amber, approaching straw, with a huge head, that shows great persistence. Very clean, grassy, floral and lemony aroma. Some very light sweet malt in the background. I would have liked more spicy hops. Flavour is quite similar (lemon/grapefruit/passionfruit and some sweet biscuity malt) but also shows more of a spicy character, and is followed by a decent clean hoppy bitterness. Too much carbonation, but otherwise pretty bloody good!

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 1, 2009
Tasted 30/02/2009. 330ml bottle courtesy of Highlandlad - cheers. Yeasty bitter pilsner, in a similar vein as Moa Original (though a lot fruitier and slightly sweeter). Lemony hop aroma, subdued hop flavour of sub-tropical fruit, good bitterness, yeast fills out mouth. Distinctive and fresh. Yum!

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Light lemon on the nose. A cleansing palate with citrus orange and toffee malt flavours. Yeasty like the other Murrays brews (which is a little unusual in a pilsner). All up, a good pilsner.

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2008
Pours golden yellow with a substantial white coloured head. Aromas of dry grass, grain and a heap of tropical fruit. Palate is perferctly balanced, citrus, passionfruit, lychee and honey make way for dry grain, before spicy hops round out the palate.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle (330ml). Poured golden with a good sized, rocky, off-white head which lasted very well. Massive grassy/fruity hop aroma with strong notes of kiwifruit, passionfruit, sweet biscuity and some zesty citrus notes. Flavour was a good spicy hop bitterness with dry biscuity malts, lemon citrus, kiwifruit, lychee, a touch of honey and a dry/grassy finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry hoppy mouthfeel and a long lasting hoppy finish. Very well balanced, lots of body for the moderate alcohol content.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2008
Clear golden body with mainly lasting head. Lovely hop aroma which is still there in the taste but balanced well with the malt, yes this is a good pilsner and Murrays are building a good reputation for crafting beers.

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2008
330ml bottle. Golden body, slightest bit hazy, with a fluffy white head. Quite a rich grainy melanoidin malt background, with in your face spicy hop character, and theres still more going on than that; leafy and herbaceous, the hops on the nose have a distinct tropical fruitiness that I canít put my finger on. Palate is sensational for a beer of this style and strength; full-bodied, smooth and creamy, chewy malt body, carbonation is spot-on, delivering a refreshing hop sharpness. Sensational balance on the body; rich biscuity malt, complex within itself, setting a excellent sweet backdrop for a collage of amazing array hop derived flavours; iím talking rockmelon, passionfruit, tobbaco, grass, lemon, pepper...I could go all day, but its like that! Finish lingers with quite a solid bitterness, yet clean with hint of bread. Canít help but love the way Murrays brew beer. Consistantly pushing the envelope and this beer is no exception. Fantastic!
