From what I remember this was a standard pilsner. Clear, refreshing but nothing more really. Went well with the superb fish dish I was having at the time.

Tezminator (314) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2018
Aroma: grassy nose. Taste: citrus with herbal notes and grassy finish. Clean and nice. Compared with the Czech classics, there is less grain and body. Nice New World (?) Pilsener. These guys are doing a great job.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2018 Light clear yellow colour with white head. Nice smell of lemons, kiwi and grass. Taste of lemon and gooseberry, medium bitterness. Being czech and used to original pilseners I would not consider this pilsener but rather pale ale. Then it is really good.

KeefOz (1975) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2017
Poured a crystal clear gold with a one-finger bright white frothy head that retained very well before diminishing to a blotchy cap that laced OK. Carbonation moderate to high, quite lively and coarse. Aroma softly of bready malt plus earthy tones; quite larger-like. Taste is slightly sweet with bready malt, slight bitterness and a little citrus flavour. Light body. Smooth, clean, crisp and slightly dry with low bitterness on a moderately long finish.

theswiftsa (124) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2017
Bottle. Pours a bright clear golden with a lacy white head. Nose is citrus, lemon. Taste is the same, heavy citrus and lemon upfront quite bitter with a crisp pils finish per the style. Heavily hopped for a pilsener but very enjoyable.

ANZUShophunter (713) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2017
From bottle in footed pilsner. Pours clear golden amber with dense white head that laced well. Fruity aroma from the Kiwi hops with forward bitterness as promised. A tasty new take on an old classic.

Luneylane (281) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - DEC 2, 2017
A bottle from Jason's in the basement of 101. Aroma: grass, citrus. Appearance: clear, very light amber, healthy-looking off-white head settling to 5mm. Palate: medium-bodied and slick, average carbonation, extremely astringent finish. Taste: heavily bitter, lemon at the finish, too astringent to be truly enjoyable.

Beerhunter111 (23735) - Beerland, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2017
33cl bottle. A clear pale golden/yellow beer with a huge good lasting white head. Aroma of mild dry bitter hops, green hops, hay. Taste of dry grassy bitter hops, hay, flowers, some cereals, not bad!

Dumpf hopfiger Antrunk. Getreidig, runde Herbe, weich, sehr süffig. Spritzig, geringe Karbonisierung. Rund, zum Ende etwas trocken. Gut. 10/11/11/11//11

Fatehunter (2649) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 14, 2017
Nice head on a slightly hazy light straw colored body. Aroma has mild lemon and grain notes. Taste is clean moderate bitterness that builds. Texture is crisp. A solid pilsner.
