“This unique pilsner was originally created and brewed for Nelson’s Marchfest 2013 by … our Czech brewer. … a golden pilsner with a crisp zest of hops and an unmistakable aroma of roasted coconut and vanilla.”

500 ml brown bottle purchased and consumed in NZ. BB date of 25 Sept. 2014.

Pours slightly hazy amber with a smallish, bubbly, bone-colored head. OK lacing.

Aroma: Vanilla, hops, toasted coconut and a trace of bready malt, in that order.

Flavor: Good balance in the sense that the coconut, vanilla and hops are supplied in good proportions to allow all to be obvious. A bit of a battle between the sweet coconut and vanilla on the one hand, and the bitter hops on the other. Long lasting aftertaste is a mix of vanilla, hops and a touch of coconut.

Feel: medium body; creamy smooth; good carbonation.

Staw colour, no nlasting head.
Smells very apparently of vanilla and cocnut essence, pina colada style from slight pineapple hop/ester
Tastes of slight sweet malt and again vanilla essence and coconut, some ester gives body but weird balance to this beer
overall it is what it is, may appeal to some
