Clear golden body with a decent head.
Flavor: Both hops and malt are amped up a bit.

Overall: this flavorful lager earns, more or less, the "imperial" label. (158 characters)

4/5  rDev n/a

Pours straw-coloured with a large, fading head.
Nose shows floral and melon-like hops along with soft clean malt, a faint biscuity note and some spicy characters. Delicate but very enticing and Summery.
Similar flavours, more emphasis on the pilsner malt with more pronounced biscuity notes. More melon and stonefruit from the hops along with the spicy and floral characters. Insanely refreshing but perhaps a little too sweet in the finish. (441 characters)

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, earth, floral, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, floral, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty, light, and refreshing.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle poured into tulip. labelled as a 'new world' pilsener

L - straw, clear,pours a sizeable frothy head that lasts remarkably long

S - hay, fresh cut grass smells with a dollop of citrus fruits and passionfruit.

T - crisp, sweet malts with mandarin up front, before switching to lemon and grapefruit in an overall bitter finish

F - well carbonated initially, but fades quickly, dry, medium bodied

O - decent pils - more in the hopped NZ style, by which I'm thinking the 'New World' reference refers to. Less grassy/hay like flavours encountered in other pils. (574 characters)

Hazy, pale yellow with a white head. full of fresh citrus and passionfruit. Crisp dry palate with some sweetness dominated by citrus and light tropical fruity notes. So refreshing. (180 characters)
