On-tap at the Courthouse Hotel in North Melbourne during Good Beer Week 2013, as part of the ACT Pint of Origin.

Pours a golden yellow colour, with a very faint haze and a light body. Head is white, forming a slightly foamy but thin ring initially, that froths down to nothing later. Carbonation is light and bubbly, no lacing at all. Looks decent.

Light crisp characters on the nose. Noble hops, and a weak greenness. Not much in the way of the German grain character you often find in a pilsener, although there's a faint bready tone. It's decent enough.

Light, peppery characters on the front of the palate, oddly enough with a slight wheaty tone to is. Mid-palate is crisp, with a slight bite of lemon and some of that grain character missing on the nose. Back stays crisp and light, with a touch of bitterness that has a slight phenolic note. Not bad though.

Feel is very light and crisp: it fits with all the light, crisp characters everywhere else in this beer.

It's refreshing and crisp throughout. The bitterness does get a little heavy after a while, but I'd prefer that to it not having enough. Overall, it's a nice little pilsner, refreshing and tasty.

Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a tight white head. Good head retention and nice lacing.

The aroma is slightly dull with reasonable noble hops present and a touch of sulphur.

A light, refreshing beer with notes of lemon and herbal hops. Tasty.

A crisp, medium bodied beer with vibrant carbonation. This is a nice, refreshing mouthfeel.

A tasty pils with good flavours that could be a little bit punchier.
