On tap at Portland Brewhouse.

A: Served a light golden color with a creamy head that faeds to some lacing.

S: Aroma of citrus and a mild malt sweetness.

T: Taste of some malt sweetness with a bit of citrus and grain. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish.

F: Light body and quite smooth.

O: Not bad but still a bit bland for a pilsener.

Bottled beer served in a pint glass.

Appearance -
A clear copper colour, moderate 1cm head which is short lived and dissipates to a thin film and mild effervescence. Standard.

Smell -
Floral, citrus and hops. Standard and not too much else to pick out. On the weak side.

Taste -
Moderately bitter, mostly tastes of hops and grapefruit with some grain. Leaves a dry finish with a cut grass aftertaste.

Moutfeel -
Moderate body, mild fizz, clean feel and not too frothy. Could be a touch more crisp.

Overall -
Easy to drink and refreshing, but a bit subdued and doesn't stand out from the crowd. Pleasant enough, but an average beer overall.

Had in a hotel bar in Brisbane.

Pours golden with a think white head. Retention was OK.

Aroma is somewhat malty. Rather non-descrete.

Taste is continues with the light malt and some floral notes. Nothing overpowering or standing out.

Mouthfeel is light and somewhat cleansing.

Overall, drinkable but nothing to get too excited about.

Not bad, but not really crisp enough. Poured at a good temperature into a cocktail glass here in hotel room in Canberra with a smallish off-white, foamy, sudsy, short lived head and no lace. Color is a clear amber with mammoth bubble trails. Aroma is typical pils with a bitter, beery, fresh approach. Flavor's more malt, less bitter, some tang, a little sweet, some odd medicine. Body's soft, carbonation a bit also. Finish is like flavor and is affected some by the softness of body and a slightly unpleasant end.
