Purchased from Beer Cartel in Artarmon, one of the interesting craft breweries they have that I've not seen elsewhere in Sydney.

Pours a very clear golden colour with haphazard, but persistent carbonation. Head is filmy, and doesn't form any larger than that. Some sudsy lacing, but again, it's a bit erratic. Not the best looking pilsener I've ever seen, but it fits in the genre well enough.

Minimal characters on the nose, giving a faint carbonic acidity. Some greenness and a hint of pilsner grain, but it's all incredibly subtle; so much so that it may be psychosomatic. Not great.

Taste is similar, very light, with a faint honeyed grain character and a hint of metallic bite on the back, which probably owes as much to the carbonation as to any hop presence. Slight yeastiness as well, which makes it veer unpleasantly towards Aussie macro lager territory. Feel is light, but suitable for the style with its prickly carbonation.

Not a bad brew, just a pretty bland and average one. I'm sorry I compared it to macro slush, because it's not actively offensive. It just doesn't do a whole heap to excite me.
