chinchill (1894) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2014
4.6% ABV 330 ml brown bottle purchased in Wanaka and consumed a day later in Queensland NZ. BB date of ? 2014. Pours clear amber with a smallish, bubbly, short-lived, off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma: Floral hops, sweet malts, and a trace of vanilla. Flavor: Very good balance even though it is sweeter than, say, a typical Czech pilsner. The hops do dominate eventually in the mildly bitter aftertaste. Feel: medium-light body; lightly crips and smooth; good, medium carbonation. O: a good pilsner with a sweet caramel malt twist.

3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2013
A most foul aroma of popcorn, yogurt, creamed corn / DMS and butter / diacetyl... pretty much no hop or malt presence to be found. Medium-light body, medium bitterness, dry, husky and silty texture. Mild acid on the palate confirms diacetyl and a sour graininess grows as it opens. Pretty awful stuff and not worth more than a few minutes with. From bottle.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 A very nice brewery with two great guys running this plant. Owned by a belgian/Swiss couple. They produce for local market. Though, at the time visiting they only had the 3 populair ones and not the great ones as it was waiting to be bottled. The Beers i tasted where just ok, nothing special. Keep up the good works guys!

CJMunchel (51) - Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2013
A crisp light beer to the consistency of bud light, with more hop flavor. Nice small white head when poured and a golden color. Would drink this beer at a party. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cantabrian (834) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 6, 2013
A nice pilsener! There’s more to it than just a Bohemian attitude, but not enough to drive it away from the style. Crisp, grassy, hoppy, very pleasant.

DylansDad (309) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 25, 2013
A refreshing easy-drinker. It is miles ahead of the macro crap in that it actually has good spicy hop bitterness, but the watery body is gone as soon as you taste it, taking all the flavour with it. I’d call this a good gateway beer.

Idiosynkrasie (3847) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2013
330ml bottle (Thanx David). Clear golden colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Floral and grassy hoppy aroma with a minimal citrusy touch. Taste is also hoppy with floral and grassy notes, additionally slightly strawy. Nicely hopped Bohemian Pilsener.
