COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made in the German style, this Pilsner has a golden appearance and is brewer with 100% Pilsner malt. Wakatu hops are added late in the boiling stage to ensure an assertive hop flavour. The resulting collision of malt and hops allows the cleansing bitterness to clear the way for the malt flavor.

Bottle conditioned.

Not bad for a pilsner if you're basking in the sun and want something crisp. No hop-head aroma to speak of, but no waft of sulphur either, so they get points for that. Smooth taste & aftertaste

Skarecrow (936) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 10, 2016
500ml bottle BB 6/17 Subdued citrus hop aroma. Hazy straw color with plenty of head. Medium bitterness with slight latent hop action. Clean finish. Good traditional Pilsener.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2015 Pleasant grassy floral aroma in a yellow gold pour are the best features. Otherwise pretty ordinary compared to most of the local competitors.

Light and refreshing as a pilsner should be. Slightly on the maltier side than the fresh hoppier style that I prefer.

3.3
3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Quiet nose of lemon and lime noble hops, dough, sulfur, calcium, bit of soap and cheese rind. Medium to heavy bitterness, dry body. Starchy and husky malt texture with an unbaked bread flavor and accompanying doughiness. A restrained Pilsner with Saphir and Tettnanger-like hoppiness but seems to suffer from husky astringency and a silt and soap yeast presence. Hazed gold with a white head. From bottle.
