4.23/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bottled beer served in a pint glass.

Appearance -
Cloudy orange in colour and a precipitation swirl is visible in the glass. Forms a thick head that dissipates to a thin foam after a few minutes. The lacing paints the walls of the glass. Little effervescence can be observed.

Smell -
A strong aroma like any good beer. Lots of hops, pepper, tobacco, citrus and eucalyptus leaves. Expecting a lot of flavour out of this one.

Taste-
Fresh hops, mild bitterness and soda water body with lemon peel, leafy and earthy tones. Typical of the pilsner style and a fine example of one.

Mouthfeel-
A creamy, medium body which is crisp and refreshing on the way down. Leaves plenty of lacing on the walls of my mouth. Very mild effervescence as evident from the appearance.

Overall -
A strong example of a pilsner, with the earthy, hoppy flavour being centre stage. The bitterness is nicely balanced making for a refreshing, thist quenching beer which would go well on a hot summer's day.

Hazy golden body with fleeting white head
fruit salad aroma
HUGE hop taste that goes from grapefruit to menthol but nothing to back it up
easy drinking though
this is good if a little one dimensional

330ml brown bottle purchased from Leura Cellars. Freshness date on the top says 08/01/16. I'm sincerely doubtful it would last that long, but the fact that the date is so far in the future gives me confident it's quite fresh right now.

Pours a deepish golden colour, quite clear, with a big, frothy, eggy head that stays persistent and rocky throughout. Lacing is intricate and excellent. Light body. The colour is a little darker than I'd expect, but otherwise it looks excellent.

Nose has very crisp green hop characters, vegetative and sharp. I get some kiwifruit, a little grassiness, tending towards something a little metallic or even skunky, which aromatically can genuinely be a pleasant character in a pils. Very clean otherwise, bright and very pleasant.

Taste is great. Clean entry, with a sharp hop character that stays bright through the front and middle of the palate. Just a hint of nuttiness towards the back, which is pleasant, if unnecessary—with the bitterness on the back it lends a slight tobacco note to the palate. Feel is beautifully crisp and clean, with a sharpness to the carbonation that helps accentuate the refreshing quality of the beer.

Overall, this is a genuinely cracking pilsner. Hops are front-and-centre, but used absolutely in the way they should in a pilsner—this is neither a dull pale lager, nor is it a beer that could easily be confused for a hoppy pale ale. It's all crisp and bright, clean and refreshing—phenomenally drinkable.

Pours a golden clear hue with a fluffy two finger head and lacing as far as the eye can see,the smell is passionfruit,tangerine and a touch of pine,the mouthfeel is light bodied,crisp and well carbonated with tastes of passionfruit,mandarins,a touch of candy and finished with a pine hop crispness and overall it's quite a pleasant hoppy pils that's very sessionable cheers.
