omhper (19233) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2006
Bottled. Clear pale golden. Dry and solidly malty with plenty of grassy hops. The mouthfeel is awesome - soft, yet crisp and the bitterness builds up to appropriate, pleasant levels. This is a top grade pilsener!

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!

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
Very pale golden colour. Strong aroma of Saaz hops balanced by sweet bready malt. Well-balanced body and flavour. Big Saaz/Hallertauer flavour up front. Light bitterness. Very nice pils.

3fourths (7887) - 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.

The beer highlight of my recent New Zealand trip was finding the microbrews from Wanaka Beerworks. All are terrific. This one pours a clear pale gold. Sweet grassy nose, white grapes too. Lots of hoppy goodness, some sweet spice hidden in there, bitter finish. Terrifically balanced and refreshing-- my favourite of the three I tried.
