2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Harts Pub, Sydney.
Quite a dark golden colour for a pilsner.
Aroma has quite a good kick of floral, citrusy Saaz hops combining with a noticable measure of buttery diacetyl.
Full bodied, a slight bit flabby, with moderate carbonation.
Diacetyl not as noticable on the body. Good pilsner malt cereal sweetness and citrus leaf hop flavours. Finishes with a solid bitterness.
Pretty good pilsner; flavour is definately there.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. One of the best pilsners I ever had. Aromas of biscuit, and flowers. Taste starts sweet, with lingering bitterness at the end. Oily palate, with a thin body and a dry finish. Dark yellow with a frothy head.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Paddy’s Brewpub, Sydney. Pale yellow with tiny white head. Light fruit and malt. Has a noticeable hoppy bitterness but on the overall balance of things it’s seriously lacking any sharp qualities. It’s quite unpleasant with a forgettable finish.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Paddys Pub. Arrived golden orange with a frothy, white head which was average lasting. Aroma was very light notes of floral hops and sweet grainy malts but this was overpowered buy strong notes of butterscotch (diacetyl) and cooked butter. Flavor was just unpleasant with sweet grainy malts, a metallic bitterness, butterscotch, lemon zest and a finish resembling that of an infected/expired brew. Light bodied with lively carbonation, a dry mouthfeel, watery texture and a bad finish. Not sure what was wrong with this one, bad batch? or just bad pilsner? but it was not the beer described in previous ratings, in all truth I would have preferred forcing down another summer larger – yuck!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lovely clear golden body with a solid head that left good lacing all down the glass. Fresh and crisp hop bite that went down well, good length and supported well by the malts. I liked this one the most out of the ones I tried at the pub and brewery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep golden color. The nose reminded me of opening a bag of barley. Hops weren’t strong in nose. Some bitterness in back of mouth and a malty finish. Would do better with some extra hops added, but still pleasent.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Relatively dark for a pils, more of an amber colour really, sweet nose, no distinctive hop aroma. Rather thick palate, too sweet, definitely not a crisp refreshing pils. Yet another disappointment from this days trip to Paddys.
