COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Saaz hops from the Czech Republic to give a light, refreshing beer with a crisp, hoppy finish without a lingering aftertaste.

Botled. Golden colour, no head. Very vague orange aroma. Sweet and fizzy with clean hard mouthfeel and some vegetables. I can’t notice neither hop aroma nor bitterness. A regular industrial lager.

DuffMan (6438) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2005
Pale golden, clear, medium head. I wouldn’t go so far as calling this "foul", but it is pretty boring. Sweet malt is really all you get for flavour (the same as all corn-adjunct, over-processed pale lagers on the market). I wouldn’t choose to drink it again if an alternative were available, but I wouldn’t turn it down if the beerfridge was empty on a Friday night. This is my standard review for all "two-star-or-less" piss. There is nothing in its character to promote this as a pilsner over a pale lager, it is just average.

motelpogo (6203) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 9, 2001
liked the first sip. thereafter realised that it just didn’t have the czech complexity. hard to know if it’s a worthy attempt at a czech style pilener or whether they were really trying

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Very unpilsnerlike. Thin, but less chemicals and rust than most Aussie lagers.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 24, 2006
In the bottle from South Grafton Bottle Shop. As near as I can tell, this seems exactly like the Tooheys pale lagers. I don’t detect any usual pilsner aromas or flavors. The hops are used in low enough concentrations that they fail to move this flavor profile into pils territory. Slight finish of tartness, similar to the pale lagers here.

bluevegie (3049) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2003
Good colour and nice lacing are the 2 things going for this beer. I want my pilseners to have a decent bite to them unfortunately this hasn't ,dry soapy taste medium thin texture and not much finish but easy to knock back a couple after a workout.

mkel07 (3013) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2009
345ml bottle. Clear and sparkling golden in colour with big bubbles that make up an average snowy head. Strong hop aroma and feels fresh and crisp in the mouth with a well balanced bitterness.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2003
Bottled. Golden body with a decent shiny white head. This must be ‘Australian-for-pilsner’ as it tastes nothing like the real thing. 1-dimensional, it lacks the malt and hop harmony of its European heritage. This beer is just one of many that has hit the Sydney/Australian market in recent years, attempting to appeal to a more cosmopolitan and learned audience. Styles like Porter, Amber Ale, Pils’ and IPA are now part of every major brewers range. The trouble is the marketing has evolved more quickly then your regular punters palate can handle, therefore these beers aren’t true representations of the style and to be fair to the brewmasters down under, probably their talent. These beers are hybrids designed to appear to adventurous folk without stretching them to far. It’s progressive but not their yet. Hang in there lads, Duff, nasullivan, et al.
