4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Botte from Slowbeer. Bright, clear golden/amber, amazing tangy lemon/citrus aromas, sweet biscuity malts, pine/citrus flavours, perfect on the palate. Hoppier and more bitter than most pilseners, but this was perfect for me. Loved it!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear golden yellow with a small, firm white head. Nose is very fruit driven - tangerine, blood orange, apricot, peach. Much more hops than anticipated. Taste is predominately tangy styled fruits, light biscuit and caramel malts. A heap of apricot and lychee notes. Quite sweet fruits. Works well. Very sessionable. Great beer

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Multiple pints on tap. Lightly hazed gold body with a short white head. Snazzy, snappy hop aroma: green, vegetal, peppery / spicy, Saaz-like in itís cheesy mustiness and pithiness but more Spalt-like in itís lemon juiciness (I have no idea what hops are used, they say all American). Luscious body, wonderfully soft malt, clean Pilsner malt biscuit / baked bread presentation. Lightly sweet, strongly hoppy but not strongly bitter. A lemon balm bomb of a hoppy Pilsner, not a touch of hop resin whatsoever, itís expressive and clean and the soft carbonation and malt contrast well with the pithy, almost-bitter lemon and passion fruit character. Similar in appearance, body, aroma and flavor to Evil Twin Yellow Cab.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Int Beer Shop. This is a nice pilsner bearing in mind Iím not a lager fan. One is enough for me before I look for a more hoppy brew to have next. Above average but expensive here in Perth. I prefer Garage Projectís super hoppy pale ales.

Crisp and clean with a good hop profile. Has some nice character building dough tones to hold up those spicy hops. Quite enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pomeroyís as part of a six taps in six days special that I managed to catch the tail end of. Put in my hand was a clear yellow-golden pint with limited head, which I attribute to gas pourage and temperature. Aromas of fruity citrussy hops, redolent of plenty of New Zealandís (other) fine green export. Tangy tangelo and blood orange entice the drinker and this appears in the flavour with a lovely smack of bitterness.
It is something that is becoming a bit of a rarity in New Zealand brewing circles, a pilsner done well.

A relatively heavy nose for a pilsner is followed by a full and delicious hopped palate that grows on you as you continue to consume. Definitely worth a visit!
