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 Australia’s 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.

Looks a light golden colour in the glass, not perfectly clear, average head retention. Aroma is sweet and malty, with some skunky hops too. It has a fairly full body for a pilsener, well hopped and reasonably malty. However the spicy hops and a skunky sweetness dominate the palate, which is less than welcome. Pretty average to be honest.

Decent pils. Starts out with a good floral hoppy nose, but the flavour is a bit of a let down. At times there is a good bracing bitterness but this is soon overwhelemd by a vague trashy sweetness. Thsi beer has potential.

A Malty pale Pilsner from Victoria from a small micro brewery refreshing i nice beer not the best pilsner around but good

DuffMan (10772) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2005
Pours pale gold, hazy, with a very brief head giving a little lace at the top of a pilsner glass, but disappearing completely before halfway. The nose and palate are all about malt-- VERY malty, almost vegemite in character. Enjoyable, but one-dimensional.

Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is malty and slighlty sour, while the flavor is sweet malty and slighty hoppy. Boring.

Jeppe (2634) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUN 11, 2005
A hazy golden beer with a white head. Sharp buttery and citrusy aroma. Rancid malt flavor with butter notes. Quite sweet with a sour tone of infection behind the sweetness. Not very good.

Mads Langtved (2240) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2005
Yellow coloured. Slightly hazy. Very boring and watery. Actually artificial too. Seems a bit too old. Flower aroma.

madsberg (11799) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2005
Bottled: Pale yellow coloured. Unclear. Small off white head. Sweet and light floral aroma. Very vague. Sweet and light grassy aroma. Is dry and quite boring. Not much going on really.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2005
Bottled. Hazy pale golden coloured. Slightly weak standard pilsener aroma. Rather strange flavour with notes of vegetables.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2005
By no means the best beer in the Grand Ridge range but a decent stab at a pilsenser. It looks great. Lemony gold, with a formidable head. Light, zesty Saaz characters in the nose. Refreshing and very clean on the tongue. Decent slug of hops in the finish. Some strong tea-like characters - in fact, tea with lemon. (Bottle)
