Beer in true European style. Light straw in colour, with delicate floral aroma achieved using 100% single malted barley since 1992, Czechoslovakian saaz hops and cold fermentation. A great accompaniment to a light meal. Superb with chicken or fish along with any salad. This also makes a great light beer batter or just enjoy on its own on a hot summers day. Winner of Australias best Lager at the National Festival of beers and numerous international medals at the Australian International Beer Awards. 2008 Champion Australian Pilsener and many more.

Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours a orange with small white head. Aroma is malt, floral notes and saaz hops. Taste is light sweet leading to a dry hoppy finish. Not a bad pilsener but a little boring.

Maris (1425) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 From a 330ml bottle on 11/12/2012. Pours a clear light golden with a small head. Has a slightly weird aroma of grain, paint and chemicals. There is some sweet malt and fruit at the start which is bludgeoned by a surprisingly assertive, long hop bitterness. Im not really sure what to make of this. Theres actually a fair bit going on with it, but its a bit on the harsh side.

Bif (2122) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle- pours a hazy copper color with a decent head that fades to nice lacing. Aroma of mild citrus, some grain and a dtrace of malt sweetness. Taste of grain and some malt sweetness and a bit of spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly moderate body, mild crispness and refreshing. Nice balance.: Not quite what I would call a pilsner but still quite enjoyable.

floydian1 (1409) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle. A clear amber-golden beer with a smallish white head. Aromas of grainy sweet malts, floral hops, some citrus. Nicely balanced flavour profile with the dry resinous Saaz hops coming through. Medium bodied with a thinnish texture and lively carbonation. A decent European-style pilsner from an Aussie brewer.

Davros (2944) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2011
Pours gold with a large lasting head. Nose shows spicy and floral hops with a huge sweet malt presence after including lots of caramel. Similar flavours however a bold bitterness balances out the malt. Lots of caramel, honey, nutty malt and piney hops. Carbonation is a little high. Very sweet and malty for a pilsner.

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2011
The pils poured light golden with an average whitish foam. Lovely grassy and floral overtones on the nose. I have to mark the beer down because of its unmistakable diacetyl content which is a unfavourable taste in lager/pilsner type beers.

crispi (107) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2011
Starts with a nice honey essence, but very bitter afterwards. Slighty cloudy, but quick drinkable.

ALLOVATE (2958) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2011
Radiant Summery gold body with a very fine bead. Head a good inch thick and a dense and rocky white. Pronounced malt nose, some cereal and fresh baked, salty bread, peanuts and burnt sugar. Sweet, sweet blackbutt honey flavour starts it off, some biscuity grain then Saaz hops take over to balance it out as best it can. Big, peppery, weedy-herbal presence of hops in back, a little wood and pine late, mildly resinous into the woody, dry swallow. Light bodied and softly spoken it dulls out quickly to become almost flat in mouthfeel (might be my sample!). Nice presence in the mouth but the honey sweetness takes away from the malt flavours of true dry Pilsners. A reasonable offering of Aussie Pils! (33cL, no date stamp, Dan Murphys Mandurah)

hawthorne00 (3664) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2010
Bottle. Just cloudy light amber with a tightly-packed 2 cm white head. Aroma has honey and orange blossoms, hints of tropical fruits and pine. Thin body. Light fruity sweetness with nice but perhaps a bit too delicate floral/ herbal bitterness. Brief bitter finish. Not bad: a bit insubstantial but nice fresh hop character.

On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green. Hazy gold beer with a little white head. Softish dry palate. Mild malt base - a little creamy. Decent hops. Tangerine and orange citrus, whispers of pineapple and mango. Well balanced with the malt. Semi dry minerally finish. Decent pilsner and very drinkable - could session this no problem at all!
