3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
After a long wait to see what De Bortoli could do with their brewery, the result is a reasonably positive one. A nice creamy fruit cocktail aroma, with a touch of diacetyl and Saaz to boot. Flavour is pleasant, but it just seems it balance to far on the sweet side to swim in the pilsener pond. A nice full bodied beer, it goes down quite well despite a little excessive carbonation. I would happily drink this again, and may chose to again this summer.

I have to say, I was expecting complete shit but instead got surprised by a semi decent pilsner. I’d have this again if the oppurtunity arose

Very passable beer. Good color, quite malty and enough hops to keep things interesting. Not a bad Pilsener at all

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a really nice golden straw with smallish cream coloured head. Looks really nice in the glass. Grain malt aromas offset excellent noble hop aromas. Really floral nose. THe hops tend to dominate the flavours and the finish is reasonably bitter and dry. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL. Poured a clear straw with a large, rocky, healthy white head. Excellent lace. Aroma is muted but massively on target: grassy hops, lemon, florals, zesty. Taste is grainy, oatmeal, rye malt, grassy, bitter. Not super drying on the palate. But really spot on.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2010 doesnt seem like a pilsner at all. Correction, (may have been bottled and poured by the waitress before she brought it over) tried in a pub in wynyard station, all i really noticed was a slightly hoppy and bitter finish

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sl cloudy light golden, good persistent head. Light sweaty / grassy nose. Tight carbonation and a lemon pepper dominated palate with notes of saurkraut almost. Cleans and dries, maybe a hint of dms. More going for it than I had imagined.
