Pot at Young & Jackson's.

Pours with a white foam that falls quickly with the odd spotty bit of lacing. The liquid is a very pale, clear golden colour.

Smell is a little bit bready, with a ripe pear fruitiness that comes later. A little delicate with both aromas.

Taste is light on but balanced. Bread and grain get picked up but not a lot else, save for some early fruitiness that died away.

Mouthfeel is full and the body is pretty solid for the style. Not a lit if bitterness there at all.

Overall it is a solid, if a little conservative, Pilsner

Pours golden amber with a small but persistent head.
Nose shows some floral and grassy hops and a slight hint of bready malt. Quite traditional, but still manages to be quite interesting.
Quite sweet flavours, with lots of clean malt, but some floral hops do shine through and mix with a dry bready finish.
High carbonation, light body - what you'd expect in a pilsener.

On tap at Sherlock Holmes.

A: Served a light golden color with a fair head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma is a bit muted with some citrus and malt sweetness and bit of grain.

T: Has a light citus flavor with some malt sweetness and bit of fruit.

F: Light body, crisp smooth and refreshing.

O: Decent pilsner, better than a Euro Lager by a long shot.

Tried on tap at Biero Bar 18/03/11.

Pours a pale gold colour, clear with slow bead. Head is white and quite dense; retains a modest crown with nice dense lace. Decent.

Smell is fairly one note. Light dry grain with light phenolic hop overlying. Touches of grass, coriander and bitter melon. A bit bland but not a bad nose.

Taste is a bit rich and oversweet at first; detecting a bit of diacetyl overriding the sweet malt upfront. A bit of green apple midway that develops more fruity - even sweet - notes later. Could use a lot more bitterness; tastes a bit unbalanced overall. Sweetness keeps cropping up where it shouldn't be.

Bit of body to it, but it can't quite cover the carbonation fizz. It's par for the pilsener course, but I'm not overly impressed.

Yeah a decent beer to start with, but I won't be drinking this all night.

Appearance is decent, refreshing look and tempting smell, but what a let down.... tastes sour and has been inconsistently poor. A bit of a trashy beer, nothing like a pilsner should be. No character to this at all, no hops aroma/taste. Very disappointing, not even slightly pleasant to drink. Cheap and nasty.

This brew pours a see through pale straw hue with decent carbonation that leaves behind a two finger head and sporadic lacing,the smell is quite weak with hints of honey malts and noble grassy hops,it has a light bodied well carbonated mouthfeel and has tastes of redgum honey,grassy noble hops,white grapes and finished with a grassy hop dryness and overall its alright but probably would not revisit anytime soon cheers.

I must say that this brewery has some pretty funky labels. Irrelevant but humorous back story to the name of the beer included.

A - Poured into a Pilsener glass a medium to dark golden colour. Quite clear with a centimetre or so of fluffy white head that falls away fairly quickly.
S - Smell is fairly simple; grainy and grassy with the typical cooked vegetable touch.
T - Much like the smell. Sweetish grainy malt, grassy & herbal notes.
M - Light to medium bodied, quite high carbonation & a crisp finish.
D - A decent microbrewed pilsener. Nothing outstanding but worth trying. I wouldn't say no.

Crystal clear golden colour with a small, white head.

Fruity, spicy aroma with a crisp hoppiness which is nice.

For me there is a lot of fruitiness here. A touch of noble hops are good and the malts of crisp yet soft but the fruit is weird.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation.

A solid beer but definitely not a classic example of the pils.
