ShaneJ (844) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2013
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!

maneliquor (3495) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2013
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

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2013
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.

waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 15, 2015
Can poured gold & frothy lasting superbly all the way through with an enticing aroma of hops n citrus leading to a delicious taste full of hops malt & citrus fruity flavours well blended with a fine bitter finish

Hop_Hedonist (510) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2013
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.

Travlr (22450) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Clear bright golden color, fluffy white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus, peppery biscuit. Taste has bitter straw, light lemon. Very tasty.

Capa (2947) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Crisp and clean with a good hop profile. Has some nice character building dough tones to hold up those spicy hops. Quite enjoyable.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 7, 2013
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! Frangimus

Draft at the brewery. Clear bright golden yellow with a one-finger white head. Aroma is floral and citrusy with white grape, grainy notes. Flavor is nice and citrusy for a pils along with a nice malt background. Medium-light body with a good crispness. A very nice pilsner.
