ChrisTurner (209) - Melbourne, - MAY 6, 2009
Bottle - Pale yellow with smallish head and a little retention. Its aroma is a lot like a European pilsener -- something I wasn’t expecting -- with marked maltiness. Flavor was crisp with a nice amount of tyically pilsener-style bitterness. Fairly watery really and lacking in oomph, but quite OK.

Crisp, clean and very enjoyable. Could drink this all day, but it's not perfect. A nice little pilsner in a close-ish Czech manner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pale gold with thin, quickly dissipating head. Nice malt and yeast aromas with some tropical fruits. Sweet malts to begin, followed by a fruit dominated and gently bitter mid and late palate. A decent, refreshing pils without breaking any ground.

From a 330ml bottle on 17/5/2011. Pours a pale golden with a bit of a head. Has a quite a malt and slightly fermented fruit aroma. The flavours are grassy malt, citrus fruit and a touch of spiciness. There is a big dose of bitterness which lingers. This is actually a good refreshing pilsener with a fair bit of character. Much better than most of the ratings on here suggest.

Tap. Hazy gold with a small but lasting white head. Aroma of citrus and earth, some dried peach and butter. Taste has some fruity sweetness and butter - the malts are kind of muddy. Quite sharp bitterness doesn’t quite cover it and it ends up just bitter.

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 17, 2010
330mL. Pours a deep, fizzy yellow with a small, white, merigue head. Okay lace. Aroma is old fruits (prunes, raisins), African or Caribbean macro lager, artificial peach and old orange candies. Taste is oily, sweet, trashy. Pretty poor showing.

davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Tap. Nice pilsener. Aromas has grass, and flowers. Taste is sweet, with a bitter bite. Oily palate, with a thin-to-medium body. Dark yellow, with a thin-but-frothy head.

eczematic (1326) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2009
nice attempt at a Czech style lager, generous with the saaz and solidly malty, but a bit unclean - diacetyl all over it and some banana too. if they can fix the fermentation could be a really good beer though.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours a nice straw colour with small white head. Nice hop aromas with a fair amount of malt sweetness. Given this am expecting a german style pilsner. Flavour though is more about the hope with a nice crispness more in line with a czech pilsner. Nice balance mouthfeel. Good beer

mkel07 (6549) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2009
330ml bottle. Amber and golden in colour with a medium foam head. Well carbonated with a sweet mellow aroma of piney hops. Also mellow flavour, well balanced with a nice light mouthfeel.
