A: Pours a clear straw colour, light carbonation, airy/wispy head dissipates quickly leaving a thin film.

S: Mild sweet smell, can't detect anything else.

T: Really nice bitter taste with some subtle sweetness.

M: A little watery, leaves a very dry sensation in the mouth.

O: A nice beer which is a little more complex than other beers I've tasted in the pilsener style, would drink again.

look: 2.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours slightly hazy straw color with a small head that fades quickly to bits of lacing.

A: Aroma is fairly mild with some citrus, malt sweetness and grain.

T: Taste Is a bit on the light side with some malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and the finish is quite dry.

F: Light body, crisp and refreshing.

O: Actually this is not a bad beer for a generic pilsner. Better than most of the swill type lagers out there.

Pours a clear pale straw. Half a finger white head dies quickly.

Aromas are of doughy malts, grains, and sadly, corn.

Taste is also doughy malts, and I am still looking for the crisp hop finish. Dear dear. A little metal is there, and some corn. Not really what I wish to be writing about for a pilsner. Somewhat stale aftertaste.

Mouthfeel a little under carbonated for style .

Not LCs best offering.

Tap at the Little Creatures Dining Hall. From notes.

A - Pours a light golden colour. Bright. Good carbonation and one finger of white head. Decent lace anda film of retention.

S - Grass, skunky noble hop was light. A little fruit and a light malt character.

T - Grassy with lot's of noble style hops. Light malt and some yeastiness.

M - Crisp finish with light bitterness. Light to medium body. Good carbonation.

O/D - Decent pils. Doesn't match better craft versions but it's good . Simple, easy to drink, but not especially special.

Shows a reasonable deep colour for the style; light amber with golden hues. Fairly shy nose with some malty larger notes, doesn’t really impress at first glance. A bit more character in the mouth; a nice cut of zesty malts and some sharp hops put the beer firmly in the ’refreshing’ character. Despite this the flavour profile is just not assertive enough and unfortunately falls into the Oz trap of just too much carbonation.

3.03/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear bright yellow, the head does not stick around.

Aroma: Faint grains with a trace of hops

Taste: Very clean with a mildly sweet malt flavour and a hoppy bitterness followed by a slightly metallic taste on the finish.

Mouthfeel: medium body with high carbonation

Drinkability: It is light in flavour and easy to drink but alas from the bottle it does not stand out as much as hoped. However, I do have to say that when I had this on tap at the brewery I thought it was much better with stronger hops coming through.

A - Pours a clear Golden colour bla bla bla.

S - Small grains and not much else.

T - Nice balanced sweetness with a slightly bitter finish. No real hop presense

M - Slightly overcarbonated and medium body.

O - Not a great representation of the style, but a solid brew in its own right

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A - Crystal clear pale golden colour with a copper hue, thin layer of head with little retention, no lacing and heavy body carbonation.

S - Grassy hops, sweet corn and biscuit malts with some bitterness on the finish.

T - A bit bland with bitter corn and cardboard hops with some grassiness on the finish. Bready malts and blanched almonds linger on the finish.

M - Full bodied ale that loads up on carbonation on the palette, but goes down smooth.

D - True to the style offering some true pilsener flavours, some nice nuttiness and a hop bitterness that lingers. Pleasant surprise and a worthy offering from Little Creatures.
