1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap pours golden with white head. Not much aroma. Taste of mashed vegetables including brussel sprouts. Metallic taste with creamy nutty finish.
Now called Pils-Nah. 330ml bottle BB 20/12/16
Aroma is quite interesting - grassy, floral, fruity and hoppy notes. Poured pale straw with no head.
Mild bitterness with a crisp albeit grassy finish.No malt noticed as the label says. Quite a thin body too. A thirst quencher rather than anything complex. waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 25, 2015
bottle pours very pale yellow with a lasting head & a citrus hoppy aroma, the taste is crisp bitter lightly sweet with tangy citrus hoppy flavours & quite a dry finish lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 19, 2013
rating from backlog. mild hops, mild malts, altogether this adds up to a very meh pilsner. DylansDad (642) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 19, 2013
As a lager, this is a good beer, but as a pilsner, I found it a tad disappointing. To me, the hops, as nice as they are, overpowered the silky-smooth, delicate malt backbone. I would have liked to appreciate the malt more. madmitch76 (24802) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013

Slight haze on this gold beer. Tidy white head. Light palate, smooth with a crispy trailing edge. Nice creamy malt with a decent level of orange hops. Touch of lemon. A little bitterness in the smooth finish which is also slightly dry. Pretty good Pils - could easily session this.
Good example of a pilsner. Nothing special but good if you want an organic pilsner. jdpeebs (686) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2012
330ml bottle- A decent pilsner, nothing special but very drinkable and refreshing. Wombata (625) - Kobe, JAPAN - APR 12, 2012
Aroma: Good floral hop aroma. Less fruity than the Tuatara pilsner.
Palate: Light-medium body. Great balance
Flavor: Balanced floral hop and malt with a medium level of bittering.
Comments: Was informed that this is a more German-styled pilsner relative to other NZ pilsners. omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 4, 2012
Sitting here reading the brewers description and trying to reconcile it with what is sitting in my glass. Not to say this is a bad beer, as it is actually quite nice and very drinkable and I couldn’t think of anything to say so looked to the commercial description for inspiration. Golden in colour, quite clean in the finish with a slight bitter after taste.
