Crisp, floral hop aroma with a rich malty sweetness that is beautifully balanced by its spicy hop bitterness.

Bottle. [thank you, bluebetty]
Pale golden with a slight green hue, fine staying, frothy, white head. Lovely grassy and spicy aroma with crisp malts, light doughy, floral. Very fresh. Highish carbonation, light and mild dry mouthfeel. Flavour is mildly sweet, some graininess, doughy malts sweetness, spicy, pepper, grassy bitter. Lingering grassy bitterness. A very good pils!

Light and golden with a white head that appears and then sinks into the glass and all but disappears. There’s a gorgeous lemon meringue aroma that wafts from the glass. Putting the nose in the glass encounters perfumy malt, lemon juice and pineapple chunks. For it’s smell, it isn’t sweet until you get a small amount of citrus at the front of the tongue. This comes through a huge cloud of popping mouthfeel and a dry bitterness at the back of the tongue. Quenching and leaves a dry finish. Finally, a lager with character!

Pours gold, with a quick disappearing head. A bit of butterscotch on the nose, sweet flowery notes, nothing too strong. Well balanced taste, a bit sweet, a bit bitter, and slightly sour. Feels rounded in the mouth. A nice example of the New Zealand Pilsener style, a good easy-drinking session lager.

Very pale in colour, bland and watery with nothing good going on. A very unappealing beer.

Bottle poured into a Pilsner glass. Pale straw and bright with a head that dissipated quickly. Not much on the nose but a little grain, butterscotch and a hint of fruity hops. Really well balanced and drinkable, light - medium body, tropical fruit hops are much more prominent in the mouth than the nose, still a hint of butterscotch in the background but I think it works well. Finishes dry and crisp. Wonderfully refreshing

330ml bottle. Bright gold and carry’s a flat crisp white head. A fruity caramel aroma that is unusual but not unpleasant. Very silky and smooth on the palate with a butterscotch flavour. A good interpretation of the style.

hawthorne00 (3544) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle best before the end of this month. Pale gold with a fluffy white head. Clean and lovely aroma has hay, flowers and earth with some light berries. Light bodied but not watery. Taste has some citrus, light bready malts and crisp bitterness. Spicy finish. The malt side is pretty light, but this is really good.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nice golden straw with a creamy white head. A little lacing. Aromas are quite floral and hoppy. A little drainy malt seems to be lurking also. Flavour wise a little grainy malt sweetness with a slightly bitter hop finish. Not to0 bad

Davros (2831) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2010
Pours godl with a small head. Nose shows plenty of sweet bready malt but is slightly grainy. Very floral hops with some accompanying spicy notes. Interesting flavours, malt shows some nutty notes and the hops, while restrained, show good floral and spicy hints. Nice light body and moderately high carbonation.
