Iím not a fan of Pilsener, but this one really hit the spot. Maybe it was the 8 hours in the sun out fishing, but I really couldnít face an IPA. Subtle & fragrant, without the usual sulphurous stench of a Pilsener

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2016 330ml bottle. Pours a bright yellow, with brief head. Aroma is floral with white wine vinegar. Taste has plenty of hay, grass and vinegar. Problem is it all comes at once, and the finish is cloying syrupy sweet. A good pilsener is fresh, clean and above all crisp. There is too much flavour here trying to do too much, and the mix is far too messy. A real struggle to finish.

Hoponmate (307) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 29, 2016
A golden pilsner with a very floral aroma. Quite sweet and not very crisp for a pilsner. Very tame on carbonation whick keeps you sipping for a long time.

Skarecrow (495) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 27, 2016
330ml bottle BB 11/?/2016 Malty aroma. Poured hazy straw color with an OK head. Good bitterness with a smooth slightly butterscotch aftertaste. Not sure if this was a Diacetyl note but it was not unpleasant anyway. A OK Pilsener - went very nicely with the curry I was eating at the time.

On tap at Taupo. Good amount of bitterness on a clean silky smooth body. Very nice.

His hop aroma and hop bitterness up front, and a very dry finish making it slightly different than expected. Looks nice in the glass, Interesting.
