COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The king of beers. Pale and bright but don’t let this wolf in sheep’s clothing fool you, there’s lots of spicy fresh hop aromas and a fair hit of bitterness making this a beer to be reckoned with.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, - OCT 22, 2013
Another well-made bottom-fermented beer from these guys. A decent summery pils with enough hop character to set it above the average big-bottlo fridge junk. Straw-coloured with a shallow pall of suds. Nice, zesty aroma, not a million miles away from the Steam Ale. Lemon peel, Saaz (?), faint ginger. Bright, spritzy palate. Light and fruity up-front before a tasty bitterness. Sauvin hops from NZ? Faintly metallic, with a dry, herbal finish. Worth a repeat visit. (355ml can from D’Vine Cellars, Wenty Falls)

dfearnley (2284) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2016
Can to tulip Consummation: Lots of wheaty grains and a bit of lemon sour Adjunct: Hops on the nose with grains with a touch of fruity sweetness; crystal clear, light yellow with a thin brilliant white head; not bad, light but drinkable

Ferris (16268) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2016
Can - Light malts and a touch of grain. Clear pale gold with a rich white head. Light grains and bit of spice bitterness. Not bad.

mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016
On tap at the Australian Brewery, pours a hazy yellow blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of grass and biscuity malt. Flavour is light and clean, with biscuity malt and a touch of grass. Drinkable and dry, with a good crispness. Simple.

Ngejo (993) - Jakarta, INDONESIA - MAR 21, 2016

ljthiessen (1397) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 17, 2016
Can. Pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is grassy with some sweet citrus. Taste is much the same, grassy with subtle citrus zest, decently balanced for a pilsner. Nothing special, but decent for the style.

3.4
Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
Draught at the brewery. Light golden colour. Heavy continental hop aroma. The flavour is more of that, with moderate bitterness. The malts are clean, providing good balance.

varanid99 (1315) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2015
Very pale with a thickish white head. Floral, spicy, bready aromas. Similar taste - bread, some spice, some grassiness too. Dry finish, not bad

2.9
northropfrye (3676) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 21, 2015
Labelled as "New World Pilsner." Light clear golden yellow body, foamy white head, some lacing. Initially nice citrus hop aroma, some wet malt and nuttiness. Taste has a touch of bitterness, and a dry almost-watery finish. Not bad for the style.

Muggus69 (2657) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2015
355mL can from Dans. BB 13/08/16 Pale straw body, decent clarity, foamy white head. 3 Subdued aroma - floral citrusy hops, grainy cereal malts, slight bready/ferment character. 5 Light-medium body, quite smooth yet well-attenuated. 3 Bready, grainy, lightly toasted malts on body, touch of honey with light touch of spicy, floral, citrus peel hops. Moderately low bitterness, dry finish, lingering minerality. 5 Quite a well put together pils. 14

mrjez (659) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 27, 2015
Can from Aeon Liquor poured into a tall Pilsner glass. L: a very pale straw with plenty of bubbles, almost champagne-like, but a fluffy big white head that leaves good lacing. S: that’s a nice aroma. I get white pepper up front, noble-style hops, some light grape, citrus, a little grassy, clean and clear bouquet. T: flavour is grassy malt, a light spice, citrus, not bad, falls away a bit quickly. A tad macro feeling, but with a nice lingering spice. F: a very distinct mouthfeel, creamy at the start, slightly sweet, light with a quick crisp dry finish. O: I’m more into this than their pale ale, also available in Japan. Goes down fine.
