Formerly known as Bohemian Pilsner.
A hopped up new world Pilsner using all NZ hops, creating a robust, hoppy Pilsner with a refreshing clean crisp finish. NZ Pacific Jade, NZ Motueka, NZ Riwaka, NZ Nelson Sauvin hops. An authentic Czech yeast throws the bitterness forward and enhances the malt.

Taste: Crisp, firm bodied with notes of citrus and grass. Good subtle hop bitterness and light aroma of citrus and malt.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops (bittering: Pacific Jade; flavouring: Motueka, Nelson Sauvin, Riwaka), Czech yeast.

radarsock (1194) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Purchased at Parker Pie. $5.50 for the 12 oz. bottle. Pours a straw-colored cloudy dark yellow with which an off-white head 1 and half fingers in length stood (I asked for a pint from the tender). Tastes and smells of white grapes, sunflower seeds, pilsner malt, LME, asparagus, and German yeast. Clean, floral, and heavier than expected.

Great fresh, crisp pilsner. One of my favourite kiwi pils, close to a czech pils. Nice aroma too.

Capa (3299) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Strong noble earthy and grass led hops. Sharp crisp finish. Soft grain notes. Quite a nice pils. More please.

Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle at Hamilton during reunion. Pours hazy gold with a creamy, white head. The nose has crackers malts, light caramel, citrus essence. Medium sweet flavor with some pale bread, lightly faded hops, hay, grains, biscuits. Light bodied with average carbonation. Mostly sweet on the finish with further crackers sweetness, some grassy bitternesss, light orange. Simple and tasty enough.

3.2
AgentAle (1750) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
Aroma is roasty malts, citrus, grapefruit and slight lemon grass. Taste is sweet malt followed quickly by a earthy, citrus rich hop. Fairly strange character for a pilsner. Body is a pale gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

3.8
mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2014
Pale yellow colour with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Very floral and sweet aromas with some lemon and grassy notes. Also has the pilsener yeast aromas. Soft but effective hop usage with an excellent malt backbone. Coming from someone who doesn’t usually like pilseners, I enjoyed this. Probably the best pilsener I’ve tried

HKdIPA (809) - HONG KONG - APR 26, 2014
Bottle at Phukets. Crisp hoppy flavor. Pilsner aroma. Bitter dry finish. Good for a pilsner, very easy drinking.

heyden (137) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 15, 2014
Crystal clear golden colour. Grassy fruity notes. Clean crisp taste; beautiful tasteful malt finished well with just the right amount of hops. Bittersweet aftertaste makes you want more.

nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 14, 2014
12oz bottle at Restaurant Public in SoHo, NYC. Pours a clear gold with some thin white head. Nose is fine enough, lightly sweet, crackery, grass, lemon, a little butter, some cardboard too. Flavor is fine, definitely has a Pacific twist, some sweetness, some cardboard, a little lime, some honey, a little jasmine, almost a little rice. Clean finish.
