Botled. Golden colour, no head. Very vague orange aroma. Sweet and fizzy with clean hard mouthfeel and some vegetables. I cant notice neither hop aroma nor bitterness. A regular industrial lager.

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2005
Pale golden, clear, medium head. I wouldnt go so far as calling this "foul", but it is pretty boring. Sweet malt is really all you get for flavour (the same as all corn-adjunct, over-processed pale lagers on the market). I wouldnt choose to drink it again if an alternative were available, but I wouldnt turn it down if the beerfridge was empty on a Friday night. This is my standard review for all "two-star-or-less" piss. There is nothing in its character to promote this as a pilsner over a pale lager, it is just average.

liked the first sip. thereafter realised that it just didnt have the czech complexity. hard to know if its a worthy attempt at a czech style pilener or whether they were really trying

mkel07 (5683) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2009
345ml bottle. Clear and sparkling golden in colour with big bubbles that make up an average snowy head. Strong hop aroma and feels fresh and crisp in the mouth with a well balanced bitterness.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Very unpilsnerlike. Thin, but less chemicals and rust than most Aussie lagers.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 24, 2006
In the bottle from South Grafton Bottle Shop. As near as I can tell, this seems exactly like the Tooheys pale lagers. I dont detect any usual pilsner aromas or flavors. The hops are used in low enough concentrations that they fail to move this flavor profile into pils territory. Slight finish of tartness, similar to the pale lagers here.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2003
Good colour and nice lacing are the 2 things going for this beer. I want my pilseners to have a decent bite to them unfortunately this hasn't ,dry soapy taste medium thin texture and not much finish but easy to knock back a couple after a workout.

ALLOVATE (2981) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2005
Reading through some of the reviews for this, I swear I tasted the wrong beer or just had a bad sample? Poured into a tallboy glass, a brilliant gold body settled out, with irregular carbonation holding up an island of white foam in the centre of the glass. Heavy metallic nose, slightly dank, bitter and crisp. Similar in the mouth, with a metallic, plastic and soapy mouth feel, boiled vegie DMS plaguing all chance for the minimal malt tones to come through. Lacking definition and delicate Pilsner characters, this quickly became just another paint stripper of a beer. Woeful, sorry!!!
