Can from Dan Murphy’s, no canning date. Pours the clearest palest gold with almost no head to speak of. Really gentle biscuit aroma, light floral hopping. Sweet biscuit cracker taste, again gently hopped, a little earthy grain in the backend. Light-medium body, lean on the palate, crisp with some residual malt sweetness. Nothing wrong with it, nothing to excite, would be a good summer beer garden sessioner.

Underwhelming. Dead ringer for a full bodied Australian macro pale lager and would have picked as such 9 times out of 10 if served blind. There's a malt sweetness that doesn't feel right and completely drowns out what should be fresh grassy notes. If indeed the structure of this beer is deliberate it certainly hasn't worked (IMHO).

375ml can BB 04 Nov 2017. Brilliantly clear amber with small white head. Nice Sao cracker malt aroma with floral and herb hop character. Taste the cracker malt flavour, a little cooked corn, firm floral hop bitterness. Light bodied and crisp. Pretty good but I don’t think the DMS corn notes are intentional and detract a little.

Hallmarked by the generous use of the Saaz hop, Bohemian or Czech pilsners are also noted for their rich gold color, fat maltiness and moderate to full body. Generally brewed to 10-12° Plato. in Czech these beers are simply called Svetlý Ležák. Sometimes served cloudy and unfiltered with young wort mixed in, known as Kvasnicova in the Czech Republic, the same as what is known as krausening in Germany. Regardless of origin, to be a pilsner a beer must have at least 28 units of bitterness, and preferably much more.

mkel07 (6546) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2017
150517. Can from Greenslopes Cellars. This is a crisp clean Pilsner that is a clear amber colour with a soft white head. Light in the mouth with an earthy aftertaste. Enjoyable beer that I could drink again.

TedE (1536) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2017
375ml can into shaker. Crystal clear amber beer with solid tightly packed white head. Very light carbonation. A bit of lacing. Nose is distant grain, maybe a whiff of malt. Good body, nice grainy bitterness followed by sweet malt. Then the bitterness brings it all home. I like this, really well balanced.

Dervock (1510) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2017
Can - pours pale gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet biscuit and grainy malt, mild citrus hop. Taste is quite sweet across the taste, bit of drying in the finish.

danjs5 (357) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2017
Clear yellow pour. Firm floral hoppy and biscuit malt aroma. Well made medium bodied sturdy bready malt flavours. Smooth mouthfeel. Good bitterness and lasting pepper finish. Great pilsner.

3.3
hawthorne00 (4195) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2017
Can. Gold with a white head that doesn’t lat too well. Aroma of grainy bread, floral and spicy hops. Decent body - maybe a bit slick. Carbonation on the low side of medium. Sweet grain bread, some butter (if PU can, why not?), a little bit of cardboard. Firm bitterness with a peppery bite. Not bad at all and I’d guess some of its "flaws" are brewer’s choices about character.

bmeup (681) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2017
Can BB 20.5.17 from Tugun Cellars. Into Pils glass, though you can drink straight from "this epic little can", sparkling crystal clear golden yellow with thin white cap, quite active carbonation with lots of bubble lines streaming from the bottom to keep that head going. Full bready malts and just smidgen of butter in there, with sharp clean floral bitterness then its pleasingly dry, though still leaving you with some malt and bitterness and a want for another. Lot of work in this Pilsner, excellent!
