A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #169 – Queenstown Brewers – 25oz Pilsner

Queenstown Brewers – 25oz Pilsner – Brewed by Queenstown Brewers in the style of a Pilsener and of course from Queenstown, New Zealand

Queenstown Brewers - Pilsner

330ml bottle of a 5% ABV beer (1.3 standard drink units) and 31 IBU things – Pilsner being 25-45 range

A crisp Kiwi style Pilsner made from premium NZ malt and hops. Not fined or filtered.

in1870, a 28oz gold nugget was found by the miners at One Mile Creek. They celebrated with barrels of beer…

it says.

Tang of hops on opening, Pale Golden pour with a nice headsworth of froth, the unmistakable lager  aroma. And passionfruit.

Grassy mouthfeel,  but it’s all up-front and doesn’t finish to much. I’m mildly disappointed in this, it seems, again, the brewer has settled for middle when they should be aiming higher. The pdubyah-o-meter says 6 things on its scale of things. Making this a beer that sits in a whole lot of other beers clamouring for attention that they don’t deserve.

I feel a bit mean and spiteful when I say there is not a lot of body, carry, or love in this. The brewer has two beers a brown one and a yellow one. Market covered. And they’re both a bit “emperors new clothes”  It’s a way short of any mark that would make it memorable or remarkable.
