2.79/5 rDev -6.7%
Pours gold with a fading small white head.
Nose shows honey and soft floral and spicy hops. Not too bad.
Similar flavours. Some bready malt and spicy hops. Afterwards some stale cardboard notes show up.
Body feels a bit watery.
Would be good if not for the stale notes.

A: Pours a dark golden color with a decent head that fades quickly to traces of lacing.
S: Aroma of malt and nuts, with a bit of grain in the background.
T: Bit of citrus nip and a faint malt sweetness and a bit nutty. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.
F: Fairly light body, crsip, quite smooth and refreshing. Decent balance.
O: Drinkable beer, has a bit of character not found in a lot of Pilsner stlye beers.

Bottle: standard brown 330mL bottle, good quality small-production macro label.
Appearance: dark golden in colour with fine but steady carbonation. A bold, semi-thick head pops up and stays there.
Aroma: some nut malts and spices, but predominantly floral and grass hops. Enticing.
Taste: follows the nose - slight nuts and sweet malts, with grass and floral over the top. Nice, clean and crisp.
Aftertaste: dissipates reasonably quickly, but that's okay - it's a pretty top pilsener.
Mouth feel: again good - a bit thicker than most pilseners - medium bodied. Good quality fine carbonation tops it off.
Overall: a good quality pilsener. The only thing that holds it back (in a big way) is the price. I can't think of any reason this beer should be anywhere near appropaching AU$70 a case (2013) other than gree.d it is a pretty decent beer per perhaps $15 less.

330ml bottle poured into a middy glass.
A-orange,thick frothy white head.
S-bready malts with grassy saaz hop aroma. Sweet paw paw tinge.
T-sweet malts with faint Herby notes.bit bland.
A- medium carbonation, slightly watery and thin with a metallic finish.
O-not terrible, but not worth buying really. Very neutral beer. I'd give it more points if it was summer.
