On tap at Bitter Phew, Sydney on 13th September 2015. Gold with shallow white lacing foam. Savoury and tangy citrus aroma. Burst of intense grassy hop in-mouth with savoury nuttiness - salted peanut. Crisp citric finish, bitter in the upper mouth. Light bodied with a zingy mouthfeel.

A-- Poured a dark gold color, looks more like a light amber ale than anything else. No floaties in glass. Moderate pour got a very large white head that quickly faded into a one finger head. No lacing at all on the sides of the glass. S-- Very bread smell to this. A little bit of sweetness to this, maybe some apple, otherwise a very clean smell. T-- A sweet, floral taste to it. A little grassy and a bit of a perfume sort of taste to it. Different. M-- Very clean again in the mouth. Sweet bread taste does appear in the mouth. Finishes dry and the Saaz hops do linger a good while after finishing. Warmer it gets the less appealing it becomes. Becomes a bit metallic and too much apple in a way. Not fun. Quite heavy and needs more carbonation. Needs to feel lively D-- At 5% it is drinkable but this beer is not my type at all. Gets lackluster as it warms up and feels heavy for the style. Should have let it get colder. One is enough for me.

Bottle. A pleasant hop aroma, dark orange in colour, a bit dark for a pilsener, balanced malt taste, with a good hop bitterness on the back palate.

ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2011
Pours not quite bright, a deep orange amber. Head forms all excited off the pour, a rocky white pad that is well retained to leave good legs as it wanes. Zingy pineapple, honey and gritty big toasted malt nose, quite spicy, with a lot of fresh herbs poking through. Toasted malt start, mildly bready mid-palate before a citrus edged, heavily peppery and herbal backend - nice hopping! Good, assertively bitter peak lets it drop off malty and tangy sweet with a lot more zesty raw hops. The sweetness builds being its only major flaw, the body medium and carbonation quite soft, prickly. Hardly a Pilsner true to type but not that bad a beer overall. My sample is probably a little passed due so I’ll compare this to a fresher sample when it comes along. (33cL, BB 17/08/09, Dan Murphy’s Albany)

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 24, 2010
330mL. Pour is clear to slightly hazy gold with a medium, ice cream head with good retention and decent lace. Aroma is butter, butterscotch, sweet candies, old orange candies. A little off for a pils. Taste is suddy, drying, sweet candy corn, slight butterscotch/caramel candies. Really just so far off from style. Loved the Wicked Elf Pale Ale but this is falling short.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. Clear golden body with a small to average sized white foamy head. Some large yeast particles. Highly carbonated. Aroma of bread, herbs and cooked corn. Taste floral herbal hoppyness with a bready sweetness followed by a slight roasty bitter finish. Light to medium bodied.

Ungstrup (33399) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2010
Bottled. A dark golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of flowery hops - combined with notes of elderflowers. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops combined with medium notes of malt, straw, and elderflowers.
