2016-05-12. Very lightly hazy pale yellow body small quick white head. Aroma is a bit odd at first, lightly grassy. Something I can’t put a name to. Flavour is lightly bitter, floral hops over sweetish lightly doughy pale malt. 6++ Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Okay but a touch odd at times. 6/3/6-7/3/12+ On tap at Craft, Hamilton, NZ. DylansDad (663) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 15, 2016
Aroma is nice, in that it doesn’t smell of gluggy adjuncts; it’s just a nice, clean, pilsnery smell of hay, grass and white pepper. It aint overly-hopped (which is good for a pilly) but the cleanliness of the malt allows what hops there are to shine through. Simple done well with good ingredients = good pilsner.

330ml cans poured pale gold & lacy the aroma is fruit & hops taste is similar blend of tropical fruity hops with hint of wine in there Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 1, 2015
I have my doubts about this beer, in fact I will probably have to come back and re-rate it as this example was a bit ugly. Lush yellow golden colour with a temporary white head. The body was hazy and had plenty of sediment lazily circulating around in it. Aromas of mango and pine needles with a touch of oxidised wet carboard. Bright and spritzy in the mouth with a good dose of pine needles and locquot. A good twist of bitterness comes through as well prolonging the taste. As ugly as it is, I’ve seen worse and a bit of sediment won’t kill me. The flavour was pretty good and I would go back for another. tombutlin (370) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 15, 2015
hoppy and fruity, this is a great summer beer, best consumed in the legendary Leigh Sawmill. Dry with a lingering bitterness GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 17, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy gold with lasting white head. Aromas of citrus and mango. Slightly piny. Flavors bring tropical fruits: mango, pineapple, banana, orange. Very ’ale-like’ for a lager. Flavors linger somewhat but then disappear before you realize it. Dry-ish finish. Solid beer, but I’m not sure pilsner is the right category. inceptioj (54) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 16, 2014
Nice. Fruity on the nose, beautiful soft flowery palate, slightly tingly, with a mild hop bitterness to finish with. Just a solid pilsner.
