4.24/5  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.

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.
