OJB (39) - Dunedin, - JUL 31, 2011
The colour was pale amber brown, and there was a medium creamy white head with medium carbonation. There was a crisp citrus bitter aroma and a smooth malt fruit taste with a medium bitter hoppy finish. This is a pleasant clean crisp style with light fruit balance, and medium body.

Fatehunter (2603) - 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.

sm89walt (2079) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2017
Bottle. Poured a lemon yellow with a slight haze and a tall and rocky white head with good retention. Aromas of lemon, spice, white florals, grass, gooseberry, and faintly tropical hops. Mid-weight but firm and crisp with medium carbonation and a moderate length and intensity citrus and grassy bitterness to finish.

Crisp and very tasty Pilsner - but £11.60 a pint in Pint Shop Cambridge... wtf?!

jinroh (2125) - ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2017
As Tuatara Bohemian Pilsner. Pours creamy yellow, nice white foam. Aroma is fresh, hoppy and grassy. Some biscuit sweetness. Lots of hops here, dry and hoppy lions. Not sure how well that corresponds with style guidelines but I like this.

Poured from their unique 330 ml bottle with the scaly, dino skin texture into a pils glass. The appearance of this pilsner brewed with NZ hops is a clear pale golden tone, topped with a moderate head of white froth of which a thin ring is retained throughout the drink. The aromas are a mix of bready malts, floral hops, and earthy doughy yeast. Tastewise, there is a little sweetness at the start, but mostly a clean crisp bitter flavour throughout, over the distinct bread and dough malts. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with an average level of carbonation. Nice, memorable example of a pilsener, thanks to the unique mixture of hops used.

TBone (18025) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 26, 2017
Tap at Cosmic Comic Cafe. Clear golden color, small white head and lace. Light grainy and fruity nose. Light-bodied. Grainy, grassy, a bit buttery, very Bohemian. Well-brewed.
