3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy blond. Aroma of grassy, pee hop. Lots of bitterness, balanced thin malt. The hop is quite heavy-handed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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)
