3.68/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

330ml bottle purchased from Slowbeer in Melbourne. I first tried this beer, I believe, at the SBB brewer's dinner at Bloodwood in Newtown during Sydney Craft Beer Week. This is a revision.

Well, it is indeed über pale, pouring a very light gold colour, with some solid hazing. Head is a fine film of white, sitting consistently, but not persisting that much. Carbonation is powdery and fine. Some lacing when tilted. Overall, it's a good looking beer.

Nose is mild and light. Slight grainy characters, a bit of rustic funk, but very minimal hop character, which is disappointing for a pilsener—perhaps just a slight grassy overtone, or something a bit herbal. It's pleasant and light, though, and that's not bad for the style.

Taste is clean and fresh. Mild grain characters, with a pleasant overtone of apricot and some clinging sweetness on the mid-palate. On the back, it drops out nicely, leaving a dry, clean finish, with some lingering fragrance. Really, it's very light, fragrant and tasty. It has some pleasant flavours, but stays true to its stylistic roots. Nice stuff.

Very drinkable, light and tasty. I'd be very happy indeed to have this as my regular drinking session brew. It's well-made, clean, light but very pleasant, with some real interest to it. I really like it. Bring on more craft lagers!

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours gold/amber with a fading head.
Faint aroma. Apple juice, Ribena. Thats about it. Somewhat off-putting.
Some of the juice transfers through as a flavour, but not as prominent as in aroma. some bready malt underneath.
Carbonation is too high.
Something's gone wrong here...
