Great fresh, crisp pilsner. One of my favourite kiwi pils, close to a czech pils. Nice aroma too.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Hamilton during reunion. Pours hazy gold with a creamy, white head. The nose has crackers malts, light caramel, citrus essence. Medium sweet flavor with some pale bread, lightly faded hops, hay, grains, biscuits. Light bodied with average carbonation. Mostly sweet on the finish with further crackers sweetness, some grassy bitternesss, light orange. Simple and tasty enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is roasty malts, citrus, grapefruit and slight lemon grass. Taste is sweet malt followed quickly by a earthy, citrus rich hop. Fairly strange character for a pilsner. Body is a pale gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale yellow colour with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Very floral and sweet aromas with some lemon and grassy notes. Also has the pilsener yeast aromas. Soft but effective hop usage with an excellent malt backbone. Coming from someone who doesn’t usually like pilseners, I enjoyed this. Probably the best pilsener I’ve tried

Crystal clear golden colour. Grassy fruity notes. Clean crisp taste; beautiful tasteful malt finished well with just the right amount of hops. Bittersweet aftertaste makes you want more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle at Restaurant Public in SoHo, NYC. Pours a clear gold with some thin white head. Nose is fine enough, lightly sweet, crackery, grass, lemon, a little butter, some cardboard too. Flavor is fine, definitely has a Pacific twist, some sweetness, some cardboard, a little lime, some honey, a little jasmine, almost a little rice. Clean finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Aeon. Nice aroma, grassy hops, hint of lemon. Taste is good, crisp and pretty bitter. Little bit of malty sweetness in there, but focus is the hops. Good stuff.
