Pikes Pilsener Lager, Clare Valley $20-$22 per six-pack, 330ml
The colour is light amber and clear, with a good frothy head; the bouquet is hoppy, floral and fragrant, clean and attractive. It’s a refreshing, clean-tasting beer that I really enjoy – light on its feet, well-balanced and delicious. I could drink a few of these. (Crown seal; 4.5 per cent alcohol). Score: 92 ★★★★
