Tried on-tap at the 2013 GABS festival in Melbourne. Yes, I know, I'm a long way out of date from entering my reviews. This beer they styled as a "Chocolate and Golden Naked Oat Breakfast Pilsner". OK, then.
Pours a light, mellow golden colour with some faint hazing. Body is pretty solid allowing a full head of bubbled off-white to form as a crest. Streaky lacing forms at the edges, and the carbonation is languid and full. Looks good.
Nose is nice, giving honeyed grain characters much like what I'd like from the stated style. There is a hint of chocolate to it, but it's quite earthy and relatively well integrated with the grain notes. There's also a remnant of its pils genesis here, with a light fragrant cereal character and a touch of hops. Pretty good stuff, and nicely matching its description.
Light and crisp on the entry: fairly subtle in terms of flavour. On the middle some of the more unusual notes of chocolate and coffee roast come in, along with the hop bitterness which spills onto the back, leaving it clean, brisk and tight. It does linger a little bit more than it could: a crisp punctuated finish would really make me buy its pilsner credentials.
Feel is smooth but light. Not bad.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with this. I think the extra ingredients add a well-structured interest to the beer, and I think it's really well matched to what it set out to do. Good stuff.

Pours a champagne colour, bit of haze with snow-white head, large bubbles webbed out to form some thin trails of lace. Light bead as well. Decent pilsener look.
Smells quite pilsenery as well. Light grain upfront with some cereal notes, then a touch of banana midway and some grassy hops. Hops get a little resinous towards the back, but yeah, OK.
Taste starts out with the same light grain note, then develops big citrus hop note with a tart touch of green apple, then finish is all phenolic, and quite astringent. Light-bodied with a bit of carbonation to cut through, but it's a little heavy on the bitterness for me to want to drink over and over again.
Not bad overall, quite pilsenery without too much baggage.
