COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The pilsner is brewed to a classic European recipe using 100% New Zealand malt and New Zealand Saaz hops. This gives it a traditional hop bitterness, flavour and aroma of a true pilsner. An authentic Czech pilsner yeast was selected for its ability to ferment at very low temperatures to produce low levels of esters and other by-products while enhancing the malt perception and allowing the clean crisp bitterness to show in the foreground. A full strength beer with 5% alc/vol.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops (bittering: Pacific Jade; flavouring: Motueka, Nelson Sauvin, Riwaka), Czech yeast.

Ungstrup (29812) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 22, 2010
Bottled. A golden beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, minerals, and malt, leading to a quite bitter finish. A nice pilsner interpretation.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, deep golden with a dense, white head leaving some lacework. Fresh aroma of flowers and a little citrus. Medium in body with a solid and fairly sweet malt base but primarily this is dominated by the great aroma hops. Subdued bitterness. This is almost like fluid candy. 110208

omhper (19932) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2006
Draught at The Malthouse, Wellington. Clear pale yellow. Dry with plenty of grassy hops. It’s light bodied with gentle rounded mouthfeel. There’s notes of lemon and a bitterness that grows and grows. A true north German style pilsener, that only needs to be more crisp to achieve greatness.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2011
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. Quite pleasant aroma with sugary fruityness and some pale malts. Quite sweet flavor, fruity and with some bitterness. Medium body, decent carbonation. A pretty straight forward pilsner but too sweet. Rather boring actually. 110416
