Bottle: a standard 330mL green bottle with a standard macro label.

Appearance: pours a clear straw yellow with a white head that fizzles down to a thin cap. Decent.

Aroma: standard but quality pilsner grains with some grass hops.

Taste: again pretty standard pilsner grains with some grass hops.

Aftertaste: not much on the finish - pretty standard for the style.

Mouth feel: light mouth feel with higher carbonation, makes it easier to put down fast, which is kind of the idea.

Overall: a pretty decent pilsner for an exception price at AU$40 a case of 24 x 330mL bottles. Worth it.

My father-in-law had some extra tall boy cans of this in their classic labels. I poured it into a pilsner glass: color is gold, darker than expected, but a nice head about 1/2 inch thick that dissipates to a ring and a light top with few bubbles clinging to the glass.

Aroma is not bad, a bit of pilsner and toasted malt then some spicy, earthy hops, with some light grass; aromas seem to be lighter than similar brews in this style.

Taste improves as the beer warms from cooler fridge temperatures: flavors are pilsner malt forward with some light toast, maybe a touch grainy; hops are present but bland and over done with the earthy spiciness, rather than freshness.

Mouthfeel is way too carbonated and drying, very biting on the tongue, but otherwise nice malt presence in the drawn out mouthfeel.

Overall the ingredients seem to be there for a quality pilsner, but the fine edges seem to rough, too carbonated and flat hop flavors detract from a seemingly good malt profile.
