Can. My first from this brewery and what a start. Golden very clear appearance. Smooth creamy and crisp flavour. Some hoppiness as well.How can a pils be so tasty -its a miracle. And its in a can-fantastic. pfhyde (59) - Davis, California, USA - NOV 1, 2011
One of my favorite pils here in NZ; has a real living-beer taste that reminds you of a bitter Orval. The smell after opening the cap is redolent--almost skunk-like--but the taste is far from. Has real drinkability--it’s the best Three Boys has to offer, I think (it’s better than their IPA by far, imho). eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2009
first beer I had on my nz trip and one of the best. an nz pils all the way - zesty fruity hops in the nose without being toilet duck. nice pils malt body balances long bitter and crisp finish. very clean, despite the "bohemian" tag up there this one has no diacetyl, which the emersons pils seems to have unfortunately developed lately. the king of nz pulseners for me.

Verre de 16 oz, d’un fût chez Hishigo Zake. Arômes délicats de malt pilsner et de houblon herbacé. Légères notes sulfureuses. Robe blonde et limpide, légère dentelle tenant bien et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, la bière montre un malt pilsner très bien extrait, aux complexes notes de grains et d’herbes fraîches. Le houblon apporte des notes épicées, assez semblables à celles du Saaz tchèque. Finale sèche et légèrement amère. Une bière qui devient meilleure au fil des gorgées. waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 12, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2016 500ml bottle, rich golden colour, frothy head which slowly dissipates, enduring pleasing aroma, slight bitterness while not too hoppy, long succulent finish, very enjoyable pilsner

Aroma: Earthy, dried passion fruit
Flavor: Like the aroma: earthy, dried passion fruit.
Comments: Very clean flavors and well balanced. Uses Motueka hop which I really enjoy. Much better than when I tried it in the bottle and the bartender agreed that it just doesn’t hold up well in the light green bottles. Drink it on tap!

A grower. First aroma and taste are disappointing for those of us with little class. It could be any euro-slosh from a green bottle. But after a few sips, it starts expanding, the hay, grass, hops, bread dough, and touch of lemon become more 3-D, without any tacky show-boating. The light, not over-done malt, the good not over-done level of bitterness, the long dry finish mitigated by a touch of sweetly sour lemon conspire to make this an under-stated gem which I can’t wait to try again. Extra point for its reasonable price. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle, a slight haze to the gold colour with a white foamy head. A lovely crisp hoppy aroma. A crisp and clean palate, a good fruity flavour. A superb pilsener. Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2009
UPDATED: APR 7, 2009 Pours golden yellow with a soaring snow white head. Aromas are fruit driven with alot of citrus and some tropical. Palate shows more of the same with some added grassy notes and hop spice. Weight and carbonation is spot on for a pils. Similar to the brilliant emersons pils, however this is a little more restrained, crisp and clean. TimE (5774) - 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.
