Hot hot day here in Oz, unfortunately chose the wrong beer today. Not a great beer, has some good flavours but not enough.

I have a hard time with this one. I really enjoyed it. Looks nice with a solid mouthfeel and fairly complex hopping ... but it’s not really a pilsner if you ask me. Which means I like it ... because I don’t like pilsners.

Pours a light golden color with a thin film of white head. Aroma is of pungent yeast with some underlying hops. Flavor is initially bitter but then gives rise to a more doughy malt profile. This is one of the better pilsners I have had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma of hops, malts, zest and a slightly bread bit (not so much yeast tho). Tasted like a crisp Pils but with some floral hoppiness to it. Kinda tastes like cleanly cut grass smells and again, zest, hops and a slight bit of malts. Really, it just tastes crisp, clean, and evokes a bit of a summer ale taste. Comes across as nice and balanced, clean and refreshing.grassy and fruity bitterness.. tasty and very drinkable. Would def. drink again! 5.6% abv.

Pours pale and clear like a pilsener. Aroma is fresh and grassy. Flavour is full, slightly sweet and crisp. Great beer for a lager

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This style is not for everyone but I love it. It is very hopforward, but in a grassy herbal kind of way that is definitely not an IPA. Really crisp and refreshing but with lots of flavor too.

wasn’t expecting to like this one so much. and when i saw 5.6 abv for an "imperial" beer it left me feeling "wtf". but let me assure you, this is one of the best "strong lager" type beers i’ve ever been lucky enough to try. super smooth body, floral and earthy without any metallic off flavors or extreme grassiness. extremely well balanced. why can’t they replace summerfest with this??

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Poured clear, brilliant golden with a nice white head. The aroma picked up crusty bread and mandarin orange, with accents of fresh grassy and herbal hops. The flavor found more bready malts at the core, with crisp lemon zest, fruity, and floral accents with residual grassy and fruity bitterness: tasty and very drinkable. Light-bodied, but with enough carbonation to keep it engaged. tangy, crisp, and well-balanced. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a golden color with soapy white head. Aroma is grassy hops, baked bread, lemon, and grains. Flavor is just like the aroma with grass and lemon hops followed by bread and cereal malts. I enjoy the flavor quite a bit more than the aroma. Medium-Light bodied on the palate both crisp and smooth. Very refreshing and quite flavorful.

An inviting pilsner. Very smooth and balanced. I am not a pilsner person, but respect this beer for what it is: a great representation of the style.
