4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It’s pretty hard to find clean, balanced pilsners. This one is perfect, my new #1 for the category. Sampled only in New Zealand several different times.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Aroma is grass, peach and melon. Flavour is funky grass, lots of peach and apricot into a bitter finish. Certainly not my favourite style, but by far the best NZ example of it. Crisp, fruity and easy to drink. If I’m in the mood for something lager then this is what I’d go for every time.

Not a huge nose on this beer, but then on tasting was pleasantly surprised by the lovely hoppy profile from the NZ hop focus. Good length, great fresh pallet. lovely beer!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle into glass. Manky, earthy, grassy nose. Pale yellow beer with thin white head. A few bubbles. Zingy taste and YES, grainy pilsener notes. Interesting take, like a pils with over-ripe fruit and dry earth. Dry finish lingers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is ace - great body, a twist on the Czech style with some fruity notes, clean, compact. Just a really well made, flavourful beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Pale malt aroma, bread, light citrus. Clear very plae starw color, with little cirrus cloud filmy head. Malty initial, sweetish jump in mid palate, hops emerges slowly and then hit stronger in finish. Thin-medium body. Not bad. The mild sweet jump in mid palate is interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow pour with a huge fluffy white head. Malt and a fair whack of lemon on the nose. Taste is crisp, malty, a good bit of hoppy bitterness in there too

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Textbook pilsner pour with huge white head and yellow body, no carbonation, slight fog. Soft lemon aroma, some nut. Flavour is nondeScript, crisp and smooth and goes down easy like all the beer commercials say. But I can’t pick out anything. Good to drink if you don’t like drinking, I guess.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Unripped peach, grapefruit peel, hint of candy. Nice citrus bite, lime zest, mikan crisp body, bready notes, dry finish. Pretty solid, almost as good as it gets for a pilsner, could easily down kegs of that :)
