COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lager is not dead. But it has been invigorated. we scoured the planet for the palest malt we could find to give this beer a subtle malt backbone and über pale colour. Then we used three different Hallertau hop varieties from Germany, Australia and New Zealand both in the kettle and in the fermenter. The result? A hop forward Pilsner that challenges you to rethink the lager style.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Super-pale golden, thin white head, grainy, honey aromas, touch of yeast, low bitterness, some honey sweetness, light body, thin palate. Ok, not a stand-out.

It pours transparent yellow and has a very distinct and specific Vegemite aroma. It has a smokey taste but otherwise lacking, still interesting.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2014
Hard to say much here. Not particularly hoppy (despite what the commercial description says), rather a broad palate with subtle bitterness. Nothing wrong, just so middle of the road.

Hazy yellow color, white head. Sweet, malty, hoppy, fruity scent. Malty, grainy, hoppy, bitter taste. Bitter aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.

KeefOz (892) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2013
330ml stubbie. BB 14/02/2014. Poured a semi-translucent golden colour with a one-finger white foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Moderate carbonation as seen by large bubbles forming trails. Aroma is sweet with malt and a touch of hops. Taste initially sweet followed by a mild hops bitterness. Light to medium body. Moderately long mildly bitter finish. OK.

ALLOVATE (2383) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2013
Comes across as one very unusual Pilsener starting off with its hazy, sandy yellow body and fine conditioning. Head is little more than a limp, splash of white that manages just a little lace. Aroma of barnyard grain and granola atop a strange touch of stewed rhubarb, Shao-Xing wine, lemon-pepper and kelp. Has a rubbery note to the palate that is just a little unsettling. The aroma playing into the finish where it is bitter but wishy-washy and a tad oily. Not much length; herbal, peppery and sour. Grainy mid-palate with a touch of honey giving a restrained sweetness. Too much that is just not right with this. Hoped for more so onto the re-rate pile! (33cL, BB 10/12/13, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Rangi (569) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 16, 2013
Not a bad pilsner. Some pleasant hoping in this one gives a slightly interesting edge to this beverage. Nice for a one off and something a little different.

LesArgen (200) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2012
A lovely, fragrant aroma of banana, grain, spices, honey and a little bit of lemon. There are more hops in the mouth, but they’re a very mild grapefruit flavour with some honey, butter and plum. A pleasant offering on this warm Spring evening. Drunk from a Prince Wine Store (Essendon) squealer.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle from Parkhill Cellars. Very nice malty nose. Aroma of flowers, honey, and nuts. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness. Palate is oily, and highly carbonated. Yellow, with a thin head.

barakihunter (187) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2012
Not much nose, just a touch of pine. Yellow straw colour with fast disappearing head. Taste is bitter with a mild pale malt flavour - not much though. Palate is bitter and a touch piney. Mediocre.
