Nice high aroma but taste and palate are underwhelming. Drinkable but not memorable, overpriced for an average experience. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad, but not really crisp enough. Poured at a good temperature into a cocktail glass here in hotel room in Canberra with a smallish off-white, foamy, sudsy, short lived head and no lace. Color is a clear amber with mammoth bubble trails. Aroma is typical pils with a bitter, beery, fresh approach. Flavor’s more malt, less bitter, some tang, a little sweet, some odd medicine. Body’s soft, carbonation a bit also. Finish is like flavor and is affected some by the softness of body and a slightly unpleasant end.

Looks like pilsener with a lovely colour and a persistent head. Aromas of pale malt and a whiff of additional hopping, but the real star was the lovely creamy mouthfeel and definite Saaz hopping that I could taste. Wonderful to be able to fill a growler full in Christchurch.

Bottle 345ml. Not too bad, quite bitter for a pilsener. Aroma is just straw; taste is bitter, with average length. Palate is oily, with a medium body. Dark yellow, with a thin head.

a light aroma with a grainy hint, almost grassy. clear spakling body with a soft yellow colour. white, fizzy head, diminishing quickly. an acidic and bitter flavour, that preserves a level of humility, not overbearing. in terms of palate i noted a light-medium body, consistent with its pale hue. watery texture with a lively carbonation. this beer finishes as mildy astringent with a dash of bitterness, moderate finish. this is a great beer for an Aussie summers day at sunset after some hard labour.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 very standard pilsner, pours a pale yellow with a short white head. straw flavoured with a hint of lemon

Note that I initially thought this was just a rebadging of the Original Pilsener, however the ingredients listed in the description are substantially different, si I think it is probably a different beer. However, whilst I enjoy James Squire beers, I am not an expert. Bottle. Clear gold with good white head. Vegetably hop aroma. Light body and frothy carbonation. Fruity sweetish start with a strong bitter finish that is a bit harsh. Overall, quite a good pilsner, but a bit harsh.
