look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Had on tap at GABS festival in Melbourne, May 2014.

Pours a golden colour, slight hint of haze in the body, with dense beige head that doesn't stick around. Looks alright.

Smells quite malty, with caramel toffee and a touch of oatmeal giving a full grain character. Touch of rye that is quite subtle with a hint of spice on it. Seems overall more like an English ale than a pilsener. But decent.

Taste is fairly sweet, with lots of caramel, toffee notes coming off the upfront malt. Again that oatmeal smoothness which is a touch full, then a slight rye spice on the back adds a bit of balance to the sweetness. I guess you can't expect crispness from a pilsener brewed with rye, but it still feels a touch heavy.

Quite a middle-of-the-road effort, but still well made. Pleasant, mostly unassuming.

A rye amber pilsner brewed for GABS 2014 in Melbourne, which is where I sampled it.

Deep golden in colour, perhaps a little light for the "amber tag", and fairly clear and light through the body. Head is white and fine, forming in a firm ring that leaves solid lacing. Looks good.

Nose is fairly staid. A little bit grainy with a touch of sweetness like golden syrup. A faint suggestion of hops come through, but just really adds a cereal quality to the malt. It's pretty weak all up.

Taste is a lot better. Slightly nutty entry with a touch of edgy hops that develop towards a clean spice through the mid palate. Rye gives a touch of acidity along with the spice, but not unpleasantly so. Back is fairly smooth and balances out the spice and lightness of the rye nicely, just leaving a little linger of pepper and hops on the back. Very nice. Feel is quite smooth for a lager.

Overall, this is very decent stuff overall. Smooth, easy to drink but with a little kick of interest. Nice stuff.
