Bottled. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of hops, grass, and hay. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of hay and grass, leading to a bitter finish. anders37 (26137) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2016

(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy, pale golden with a small, white head. Very fresh aroma of fruit and summer flowers. Quite a solid, malty body with a good malt sweetness before a very solid hop bitterness with loads of aroma hops and fresh flower notes. Yet another example to show that capable New Zealand micros can brew excellent pilseners with locally grown hops. 040208 Theydon_Bois (19189) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2015

Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light grassy bitterness in the close.
Decent clean pils.

5 Fairly standard non-gimicky craft lager aroma, light sweet grains and some fruitiness in the hops.
2+ Typical lager colour, but with a nice persistent tight white head.
5 Very bitter taste, packed full of bitter hops, but quite papery.
3 Soft palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish starts a little sweet and fruity, but gets bitterer every second.
9 A little too much like a simple lager with amplified bitter hoppiness, but losing a bit of balance.
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 500 ml bottle. BB 31/May/2017. Thanks Timo A!DuffMan (10270) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2009
Cloudy pale golden color with a small white head.
Fresh grassy and fruity hops, dryness, bitterness and some grainy maltiness in the aroma. Nice.
The flavor is grassy hops, moderate bitterness and grainy malt. Quite alright.
Bottle. Pours a clear brassy golden with a large frothy white head that leaves lace all the way. Fragrant flowery citrus rind aroma with underlying clean grains. Crisp grainy palate, perfumey lemon hoppiness, and a striking dry bitter finish. An excellent pilsener, true to style, delicious. 3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2013
A quiet, hoppy and clean Pilsner with notes of sulfur, grass, herbs, spice / pepper, leafy greens, small touch of celery seed, that’s the Saaz for sure. Malt is a tad crude, cereal-like and grainy. Light body, creamy carbonation but peaked mouth feel that could use more firmness and presence. The Saaz are nice, there’s no obvious defects, t’s well-made and spicy and a little green. Not a game changer but altogether solid stuff. From draft at Andrew Andrew in Auckland. RichTheVillan (7752) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Can from at Cotteridge Wines; clear amber pour with a creamy white head, aroma has lemon and some malty action, taste has clean malts, along with honey a hint of citrus, refreshing. TimE (5775) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2011
lovely saazy hop nose with a strong toasted malt character. Very restrained bitterness, dry finish. Fairly nice for what it is.
