Pours a golden colour, with a large head that fades away to a thick lacing. A small amount of sediment makes the beer almost opaque.
First Sip: Slightly sweet, with strong flavours of grain and citrus. Mild but long-lasting hops bitterness remains after the swallow. Medium mouth-feel, but it is little foamy on the tongue and quite dry.
I'm not really a fan of pilsners, but this was quite nice. I wouldn't go out of my way to drink it, but I'd never refuse one if it were offered. It goes well with a mild farmhouse cheddar, and would be excellent with my mate Thiva's dal curry* and rice.

Same again, sir? Okay. Don't forget the cheese.
*Thiva made one at Sri Lankan strength, and I think I lost all my taste buds for a few days. He tones them down to "Aussie Strength" when he makes me one. "I only use one whole chilli" he told me. Even so, next day my bum feels like the map on Bonanza and I'm sure it looks like the Japanese flag.**
**I've not actually looked to confirm this.
