3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and a little lace. The aroma is dry yeast, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with light hoppy, light pepper spice palate and a little citrus in the finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not a bad Pilsner as far as Pilsners go.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap at Fine Wine Delivery Co. Clear, golden colour. Not much of a head but it did last the duration in glass. Quite a yeasty nose, with lovely citrus aromas coming through, very barnyard rustic feel. Wonderfully smooth with a lasting finish, the flavours seem to intensify on the palate until it disappears, leaving you grasping for another mouthful. Very well structured and balanced. A great beer for those looking to begin the journey away from mass produced lagers.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured fresh on tap from Fine Wine Delivery Co. Pours a lovely translucent golden colour. On the nose is interesting as it is quite fruity, very different from any other pilsner I have tried. The taste was nice and crisp, with hints of passionfruit and citrus fruits, which finished nice and clean. I’m not usually one to drink pilsner, but this was one heck of a drop. Very sessionable as well with an ABV of 4%

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy gold with lasting white head. Excellent hop aroma. Almost like it should be a pale ale. Label says passionfruit and citrus, but I get more of a herbal quality. Flavor is very light with a sharp bitterness more typical of a pilsner, but with more malt complexity. A paradox this is. A delicious, innovative, paradox.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Paradox Pilsner bottle. It pours a deep gold with a big soapy head of foam and a bready malt aroma, lemony hop notes and an earthy pine bark-ish hop character. The beer is light bodied with some crackery malts and that pine bark bitterness I don’t terribly care if it’s for. OK.
