It’s pretty hard to find clean, balanced pilsners. This one is perfect, my new #1 for the category. Sampled only in New Zealand several different times.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on 10/1/2010. This pilsner pours a slightly hazy medium orange gold color from a 33cl bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, grain and floral hops. A medium bodied pilsner. The malts are cereal and grainy. The hops are floral and slightly spicy. Decent carbonation. Nice balance. Finishes a little sweet, and a little bit off that sharp pilsner bite, but very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and sweet. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

330ml bottle. Full creamy beige head that looks good sitting atop the bright amber base. Aromas of passionfruit, sweet and tart at the same time. Smooth dry flavour with that same sweet tartness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale gold into a shaker. Bright white head quickly recedes leaving spot lacing. Skunky bread and resin aromas. Crisp sweet skunkwater with a lasting bitter Nelson finish. This just appeared on the East coast and it’s skunked, so perhaps the abv is a little low for a journey across the world...perhaps they make and ipa???

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great caramel malt aroma. Very clean and complex. Just the right amount of spicy saaz hop aroma. Slightly hazy, straw gold, long standing frothy white head, noticeable carbonation and nice lacing. Taste is a nice sweet caramel malt with medium spicy saaz bitterness. Sweet malt up front with a quick blast of bitterness that lasts into a nice long and well balanced finish. Really a delicious beer.
