2.8/5 rDev -14.6%
A: Golden straw, crystal clear with numerous teams of bubbles springing to life from the bottom. Head has decent retention, just a tint off white.
S: Light grain, green apple hops and some cinnamon (oddly enough)
T: Copper coins, diacetyl, white corn and some hints of pine cone shavings. Finishes very grainy and surprisingly bitter. Some odd lingering cooked corn flavors.
M: Thin but fairly full on the tongue.
D: Not very good. Light beers like this don't travel well, perhaps its better actually in Australia.

Poured into a pils glass it forms an Ivory white head that has some retention. Golden body with a bit of a chill haze.
It most definately relies on its saaz hops. Not a bad thing at all. The taste is the best part of this brew with a light grain bill leaning towards sweet malts and a drying hop zip. There is an underlining of pineapple or other light fruit that rounds it out. What has this beer turning the wrong direction is the aftertaste. It fails to clean up and the aftertaste has a cooked vegetable platter that doesn't bode well with me. Other than that this is a nice offering.
Notes: Not a bad offering at all. In fact it started to grow on my a bit. This being the last of a six pack if the price is right this may see the fridge again.

nice deep golden color with 1cm white frothy head. even flow of small bubbles through the brew.
wow. interesting aroma. surprisingly full and hoppy. sweet and floral are the main contributions. it lacks some spiciness which you dont miss at first. once you dig (sniff) a bit deeper though, it would be a welcome trade off for some of the sweetness.
the taste is something different all together. one of the most contrasting beers from smell to taste i can remember.
kind of bland at first, probably just from the onslaught of the smell. what comes through is a fairly flat malt. just doesnt do much in the mouth. a bit of bitterness in the finish, but basically pretty flat.
had some high hopes for this one despite having their premium lager. anyway, chalk this one up to experience.

Overall I found this an interesting and enjoyable beer.
It was darkish in colour having little bead and a loose white head.
The smell was faint but had a fruit passionfruit note to me.The passionfruit was also evident on the palate.
The taste was pretty surprising due to a fruity/flowey hoppiness (I never know what sort of hops )that rode over the smooth sweet maltiness
I've never detected the same hop quality in a Pilsner before , so this may mean it is straying from the style somewhat , but a pretty nice brew all the same
