Bottle. A good version of a pilsener, just the right amount of bitterness, with the added bonus of being refreshing.

Tasted on tap @ The Great Kiwi Beer Festival 2012 in Christchurch. Fruity taste, quite unusual for a pilsener!

Golden color, nose of hay, butterscotch and a bit of popcorn. Not really that great. Mouth is not balanced, some interesting hops but butterscotch distracts. Little bitterness. Boring.

500ml bottle. Light golden colour with a dishwater sudsy foam cap. Thin and watery to look at with aromas of lemon rind, pear and peach coming through. Clean crisp taste and light on the palate with some sweet flavours tingling the tongue.

Bottle. Deep golden pour, frothy white head, lacy trappings. Biscuity sweet malt aroma with really nice delicate aromas of floral fruit. Generously malty palate, lots of body, perfect balance of flavourful aromatic hops and bittering hops. An exceptional pilsener without being ’in-your-face’ in any way. It may help that I have a super-fresh bottle too. Truly excellent.

500ml bottle - looks the goods in the glass, golden with again, a decent persistent head. Light sweet fragrance in the nose. I wonder if this & the lager were swapped at birth. This lacks any hop features, mouthfeel is sweet fruits with some cereal meal type grain notes but finishes sweet. Bizzare but no where near what you would expect from a Pils

sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 24, 2009
500mL bottle. Pours a clear yellow with not a lot of head. Really strong, sweet malt (straw) nose, almost funky. Some floral hops and fruit like apple. Flavours are much the same, not a lot of bitterness. Kind of boring really... No finish that I can tell. A bit watery, and clean on the palate. Overall quite simple but nice and malty.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 14, 2009
330mL bottle from the brewery. Pours golden with a fizzy white head which dissipates fully. Cotton candy sweet nose. A lot of vanilla and a little bit of caramel malt. Interesting aroma, for a pilsener. On the taste; initially grassy hops, then some honey like sweetness. Smooth flavour, hints of vanilla. Medium/low bitterness, finishing grassy. Would be an excellent session beer to have a rigger of.
