Lager is not dead. But it has been invigorated. we scoured the planet for the palest malt we could find to give this beer a subtle malt backbone and über pale colour. Then we used three different Hallertau hop varieties from Germany, Australia and New Zealand both in the kettle and in the fermenter. The result? A hop forward Pilsner that challenges you to rethink the lager style.

Did not really enjoy this, it was heavy and not particularly tasty. The malt overpowers almost everything else and I didn't get too far into it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet orange and tangy biscuit malts. Orange and citrus and hops. Very nice brew.

Now called ’New World Pilsner’ and 4.6%, but same blurb and near identical label. Gusher!!!! Whoa, it’s like a beer volcano. After all the excitement I’m left with a murky amber beer with a small solid white head and a faint hoppy scent. Laces well. Clean and refreshing taste is followed by a slight maltiness. A subtle metallic fruitiness finishes it all off. A bit tastier than most macros and certainly easy drinking.

Pale gold pour with a thin but long lasting white head. Bready, grainy, fruity aroma. Taste is sweet, malty, a little bitter.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2015
Pour golden with a minor haze. Two fingers of foamy white head. Straight up bready malts, clean dry and crisp. Bitter finish, slight spice. Very drinkable

From a bottle. Pours clear amber with minimal head, quite hoppy for a pilsner, but still quite smooth.

Pours cloudy golden color with a minimal head. Smells like a fruity pale ale. Tastes pretty sweet and therefore more like a pale ale and not like a crisp pilsner. The only thing that resembles a pilsner is maybe the slightly bitter finish. Smooth texture and good carbonation. I like it.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Super-pale golden, thin white head, grainy, honey aromas, touch of yeast, low bitterness, some honey sweetness, light body, thin palate. Ok, not a stand-out.

It pours transparent yellow and has a very distinct and specific Vegemite aroma. It has a smokey taste but otherwise lacking, still interesting.

Hard to say much here. Not particularly hoppy (despite what the commercial description says), rather a broad palate with subtle bitterness. Nothing wrong, just so middle of the road.
