Not only have Renaissance branched out to - shock horror - a lager, but jove, they’ve nailed it. I felt the Paradox blonde ale was a bit underdone, but this one hits the pilsner spot perfectly. A bit of resiny hops on the nose carried up a bit of butterscotch and biscuit. In the mouth it’s a big bold bit of crisp lemon cheesecake, with a lovely dry lingering after taste.
Very impressive, and right from the first bottle I might be thinking this may replace Croucher’s Pilsner as my favourite New Zealand lager.
330ml bottle. Pours hazy pale yellow. Passionfruit, guava, orange, something a little minerally chalk like, nice sweet honey notes. Nice enough. lmojoh (897) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2017
Flaske 33cl fått av DjOeye. Aroma gjær, eple, karamell, malt. Utseende klar lys gul med hvitt skum. Smak sitrus, eple, karamell, humle, malt. Litt humlet pilsner øl med passe bitterhet for en pils, fin og rund ettersmak. God øl

0,33 litre Bottle from Gulating Hamar, at home. Light colour with little head. Citrus aroma, and a Nice hoppy taste. AnG_BrgNor (774) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 8, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden with minimal foam. Aroma and taste is grass, wet cardboard and sweet malts. Mine was a bit old an it probablty inflected the taste. Very nice bitter ending on this one. Will rerate with a fresh one another time. gunnfryd (15099) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2017

Aroma; mildest citric hops, modest caramel malts notes. Look; palest yellow golden body, pearl head. Taste; grapefruitish hops, grain, depressed malts - bitter finish. Feel; thin. Overall; lack of malts made this a paradox of a pils, an unbalanced meh! [33cl.btl 4.0% BB:4.3.2017 L589 [email protected]
Nice clear golden, foam is nice but disappears quickly. Aroma is soft, malt biscuits and some sour notes. Herbal hops. Taste reveals quite hopped up pilsner, feels more like a hoppy pale ale actually. Drinks easy and is quite refreshing. Skarecrow (831) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 27, 2016

Bottle from Yamaya. Clear blond with fluffy even head. Citrusy nose, some passionfruit and dusty malts. Quite zingy and even spicy. Went down a treat with a Thai green curry.

Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal (Asko Rogaland ølmesse): klar lys gylden med fint ok skum. En tydelig definert pilsner med god, tørr bitterhet preget av gress og (litt for mye) kokte grønnsaker. Må prøves igjen.
