Murray’s Rudeboy Pilsner has a distinctive crisp, fresh hoppy flavour that has made it a favourite among the country’s foodie community.

"The Rudeboy Pilsner is a very elegant lager with a classic biscuity malt backbone and assertive late hop character," says Head Brewer Shawn Sherlock. "It’s traditionally been available draught only, but now the beer is available in the bottle. It has been a real challenge to reproduce the popular draught beer in the bottled format but as a lover of traditional Czech Pilsner I’m really happy with how the bottled Rudeboy Pilsner presents."

The beer pours a pale straw colour with an almost meringue-like head. The intense citrusy aroma and flavour is delivered by the New Zealand Motueka and Pacifica hop blend, which is balanced by sweet Euro malt, and finishes with a refreshing bitterness.

Rudeboy is Murray’s interpretation of Pilsner made vaguely in the Czech style but with a New World twist. It pays homage to European brewing tradition using the old school lager brewing process of cold fermentation and extended conditioning periods, but the extensive late hopping takes this Pilsner in its own direction.

ALLOVATE (2961) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2014
I feel jipped as this one wasn’t exactly in fine form though I managed a fresh bottled sample. It produced up a misty, sandy, orange gold with little life at all. Head a tight wafer of white that receded completely after just a minute. Grassy, granola, hay-bale and freshly toasted malt mix on the nose with just a hint of lemon zest and creamed honey. Dusty, powdery mouthfeel, quite buttery with a pronounced honey on toast flavour coming through. Very light bodied with minimal bitterness and low floral, herbal hops in late. A perfume musk lingers gently between sips. Not altogether the tightest or cleanest Pilsner. One for a re-rate on draught at some stage would be great. (33cL, BB 13/12/14, BWS Willeton)

floydian1 (1414) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 19, 2014
330ml bottle into pilsner glass. Slightly hazy straw yellow pour with a small white head providing a scanty lace. Nose has honey cereal malts with grassy and citrusy hops. Palate is lively and crisp with a refreshing dry hop bitterness and a hint of spiciness. This is a superior pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strange flavour for a pilsner. Normally my favourite type of beer. But clever name and packaging

M_Sack (653) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle. Clearish straw, finger of frothy white head which sticks nicely to the glass. Very gentle citrus and biscuit like aromas. A touch of fruit to begin, followed by long biscuit malt through the front and mid palates. A nice injection of cleansing citrus and hop bitterness toward the end. A very flavoursome and perfectly balanced pilsner, which is something of a rarity.

KeefOz (1699) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2014
BB 07/01/15. Poured a clear pale gold colour with a one- to two-finger white frothy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation high with many mall bubbles forming trails. Aroma of malt with a hint of citrus. Taste slightly malty with hops bitterness. Light body. Dry with a long hops bitterness finish. Ordinary.

From a bottle. Fruity aroma, smooth with hoppy flavours, not a regular pilsner but still quite a good drop.
