The best things take time, like the rich, malty concoction from the city of Pilsen. Originally cool fermented with Czech yeast, it is then lagered for several months at freezing temperature to create a clear crisp bitter.

500ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 151013. Not a bad pilsener but didn’t really grab me though.

Draught @ Young & Jacksons pub, Melbourne. Golden pour with minimal white head. Aroma and taste is grainy malts balanced by a decent crisp grassy and citrusy hop bitterness. Medium body, average length. Decent.

Stale aroma. Cloudy golden colour with good head. Some bitter flavours but not great. Med body and carbonation ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a 500ml bottle on18/11/2013. Pours an almost clear deep golden with a small head. Has an unusual but quite pleasant aroma of biscuity malt, some fruit and chemicals. Flavour wise it’s very sweet and malty, with some fruity bitterness (orange peel) to balance things out. Curiously, it reminds me a bit of Chritmas cake. It has a touch of alcohol reminiscent of an imperial pils. Has a fullish body and medium carbonation. All up, this is quite odd but actually quite enjoyable.

Good attempt at a pilsener style beer. Not many microbrewers have a crack at this style due to the need to lager as opposed to brewing ales. That said I think this was still done with ale yeast rather than lager yeast based on the aroma and flavour. Pour is cloudy pale amber with clean white head. Aroma is mainly grapefruit with some hops. Palate is quite viscous and sweet, with a medium finish. I would like it more if it were crisper and cleaner to call itself a pilsener. Maybe the local microbrew scene needs to be more respectful of classification like the wine industry.

Bottle from Parkhill cellars. Quite fruity. Aromas of cereal and citrus, with tropical fruit. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, with a frothy head.

Bad bottle? Unusually hard flavours with burnt rubber, bitter minerals and a faint chemical note. Its trying to push that classic Czech minerality but done in a clumsy fashion here. Hard to get a read but it’s not that good.

hawthorne00 (4240) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle, 10C. Slightly hazy gold with a white head. Floral aroma with spice and some lemon, crackers. A hint of dark berries too. Deep but clean. Full, creamy mouthfeel. Moderately sweet and quite bready, with slight lemony sourness, some berries, pronounced bitterness. Lingering floral and peppery notes. Very good, slight shame it’s so strong.
