3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of hops, grass, and hay. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of hay and grass, leading to a bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy, pale golden with a small, white head. Very fresh aroma of fruit and summer flowers. Quite a solid, malty body with a good malt sweetness before a very solid hop bitterness with loads of aroma hops and fresh flower notes. Yet another example to show that capable New Zealand micros can brew excellent pilseners with locally grown hops. 040208

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle - brought at great expense by Oliveer from work - thanks!
5 Fairly standard non-gimicky craft lager aroma, light sweet grains and some fruitiness in the hops.
2+ Typical lager colour, but with a nice persistent tight white head.
5 Very bitter taste, packed full of bitter hops, but quite papery.
3 Soft palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish starts a little sweet and fruity, but gets bitterer every second.
9 A little too much like a simple lager with amplified bitter hoppiness, but losing a bit of balance.

Bottle. Pours a clear brassy golden with a large frothy white head that leaves lace all the way. Fragrant flowery citrus rind aroma with underlying clean grains. Crisp grainy palate, perfumey lemon hoppiness, and a striking dry bitter finish. An excellent pilsener, true to style, delicious.

Draught at MarchFest 2009, Nelson. Pours golden with a small white head. Pale malt, citrus, grass and floral notes. The mouthfeel is clean and crisp. Thin bodied with OK bitterness. A decent pils.

Appears perfectly acceptable with a fluffy whtenduring head. Golden yellow malt aromas immediately waft from the glass along with subtle grassy, sprucy hoppiness.
Tart grassiness is the first of the flavours and then resin. Fresh and light, crisp and quenching. Fairly simple, but does the job.
