3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 330ml bottle on 20/2/2012 (Batch No. BP020, bottled Dec 2011). Pours a slightly cloudy light golden with a biggish head. Has a moderate grassy, fruity, slightly floral aroma. Flavour wise, it has a lovely fruity flavour (green apple and apricot), a dash of doughy yeast, and a nice sharp hop finish. This is a very good, tasty pilsener, and I’m surprised by the modest scores it’s received on here so far. Not sure why its called ’Philsner’.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ML bottle
Bottled August 2012
Golden straw color, bright white head, some streaky lacing.
Nose is of toasted bread and grassy, citrus hops. Pretty simple really.
Taste is pretty similar to the above. More hop bite in front and back than what expected. Pretty much bread followed by some grassy and citrus hops. or the other way around in the back. Clean and crisp. Good carbonation and body to this. Not really exciting ut a decently made beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. A good solid amber colour with an even level layer of white foam. Strong to moderate hop aroma and a good strong body with mild bitterness that leads to a dryness on the palate. Sweet malty flavour.

Bottle exploded with fizz onto the floor. Not a good start but recovered with a reddish malti pils flavour which was very good. Need to try agains.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light straw colour that is quite brilliant. Clean aroma of spicy hops with some fruity appley esters going on there. Palate is light and quite refreshing, crisp and well balanced. Not my favourite Pils, but a good beer all the same.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good, pour is murky brown with white head and spicy hop aroma. Flavour is initial tropical fruits and finishes with a light hoppiness.
Reminds me of homebrew style pilsener, which is not a bad thing, but would expect a bit more polish.
