On tap and served in a “handle” at Ratbags in Dunedin, NZ.

A: A typical pilsner: pours golden amber with streams of small bubbles. Excellent clarity. Decent head.

Aroma: typical in both quality and strength. More hops than grains.

Flavor: the triple hops may add some complexity and balance but this is less hoppy than most pilsners.

Feel: medium body; nice crisp carbonation.

O: a decent but unimpressive pilsner that’s poor in comparison to the Emersons Pilsner I had earlier in the day.
