Kurtos (100) - Sydney, - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a see through yellow colour. Aroma. Very faint aroma, that of citrus and a slight spiciness. Taste. Very hard for me to describe this, but what i can best describe, as a bitter lemon taste with a sort of herby character. Overall. Very mild watery beer, but still has enough flavour to keep you interested.

Jado (528) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a perfectly clear golden amber with a fluffy white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas are faint but some grass, apple, cracker and citrus come through. Taste is sweet apple at the front end before some prickly hops emerge. Gentle citrus at the end. Seems like there might be something reminiscent of Belgian yeast in there. As pilsners go, this is quite a good one.

RafeAU (113) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2014
This has more flavour than most Australian lagers and is quite a bit better than the usual tasteless stuff. but it’s still just a fairly mild lager - nothing remarkable here.

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours gold with a fading white head. Nose shows straw, spicy hops, clean light malt. Pretty basic, pretty clean. Light flavours. Straw, cardboard, vegetal notes and some spicy hops. Body feels watery. Overcarbed.

375ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Rating from March 2014. Pretty decent beer, considering that it is a pilsener.

ALLOVATE (2410) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2014
Medium gold, translucent, with big, clingy carbonation and a soppy, short-lived crown. Dry, grassy and herbal, peppery hop and dusty, sundrenched grains on the nose with just a hint of lemon zest. Quite soft and supple on the palate. Nice backbone of pilsner malt and a bready, toasted malt mid-palate. Good body, quite firm with a dusty, peppery hop tail and plenty of sour, citric zing in the finish. Nice, well held bitterness matches the spiciness of it whilst the balance of malt and hop is sublime. It holds well even as it warms. This is wonderfully quaffable stuff. I’m impressed. One COoper’s I’ll certainly stock the fridge with come Summer. Delicious. (355mL, BB 06/10/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

bmeup (520) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2014
@the precinct, Darwin Waterfront. Hazy yellow gold, thin white head. Grainy & citrus aromas, same in taste with some spicieness in aftertaste. Enjoyable Pils definaty a cut above others.

Hop_Hedonist (246) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2014
Lemony neutral malt flavoured brew - easy drinker - yeah I see the intention to make a classical European pils and its kinda there in the hops but needs to be way more assertive for me... But it’s still a non-exciting lager for me even if it’s about as good as Aussie Pils gets (Stella is a tad better).

mattyhennessy (311) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2014
Actually an excellent pilsener. Light and refreshing. Some citrus sweetness on the nose. Light body, fitting carbonation. Excellent malt sweetness. Definitely lemon dominated but not overpowering

hawthorne00 (2433) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle, better at 10C than 8. Gold with a white head that lasts. Aroma is grainy with lemon and flowers. Bittersweet and grainy with lots of lemon, some herbs. Finish is dry with moderate but lingering bitterness. Refreshing, balanced. Not bad at all.
