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.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Taste was quite pleasant, but the aroma was subtle to the point of homeopathy. Refreshing with trout for dinner, and definitely didn’t overpower the fish.

Tap @ Konttori.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
As Pilsner. Clear light gold with a thick head of foam. The aroma is incredibly perfumey with grape notes, possibly hopped with Nelson Sauvin?
Crackery malts, ash and floral hops on a crisp light body. Possibly past its best as it was on sale but once was enough. Surprisingly grassy and bitter.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy straw coloured, with white, frothy well retained head. Great lacing. Very gentle lemon blossom and grass hops aromas, with a hint of honey malt. Great bitterness throughout palate, combining grass, spicy and citrus hops and an ever so slight sweet honey and bread malt background. Long, bitter, spicy finish. Refreshing, crisp, clean. Very good pils.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden color, clear liquid, white head. Taste is rather too bitter for Czech pilsner. Aroma is on the hops side. Unpleasant vomit smell, but quite good beer though.

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.
