COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true pilsner style beer, using centuries old decoction mashing techniques and incorporating hop flowers from the fields of Zatec. Sweet barley flavours quickly recede revealing the emphatic spiciniess and characteristic aftertaste of the Czech Saaz hops.

Brewed for the Fish Rock Brewery by AIB

"Beer brewed by winemakers who love beer"? Hmmm... And then they call themselves a brewery despite blatantly not having a brewery. Double hmmm... Anyhow, its filtered, gold with a pretty ugly head that doesnt last long. Aroma is rather weird - apple juice and lime cordial, reminiscent of Redds Gold or Monteiths Radler. Its quite offputting. Theres also a bit of sulfury Czech yeast which would be really good if it were accompanied by malt or hop. Luckily it tastes pretty good. Round, soft, peachy malt, tangy Czech hops, sherbety tropical fruit. Not that hoppy or bitter, though. Its a bit weird, but its not far off being quite good. Also, the label says this is brewed at Australian Independent Brewers in NSW, not Mildura, but on the web its mentioned that ALL (thats their emphasis, not mine) the beers are brewed in Mildura. I entered it under Mildura for consistencys sake.
