Just like you, but different
6.2% ABV, 34 IBU things, 186 calories a serve, and 2.3 standard drink units in this bottle that is 500ml (16fl Oz give or take)
Labelled by the crowds as ‘Bittersweet’, the German style bitterness is evenly balanced by the sweetness of the pilsner malt.
It’s fast being recognised as a chart topping brew and why we call it our Top of the Hops.
The Nelson Sauvin appeals to me too,
lovely punchy aroma on opening. Really pale pour, with a lovely full carbonation, and delivers a nice firm fluffy head.
Has that expected rough edge that you’d like from a Pilsner, so it’s interesting and rewarding.
But not quite enough “pilsnery” would be the complaint, I’d like to have more.
Sits well in the glass, easy drinking, but because of the amount of malt muting everything this could be, unkindly, described perhaps as lacking in flavour.
A bit too polite. Too Malty. It’s very nice and I’m smiling because Pilsner is a style that I enjoy more than I ought.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 a of its things from the thing. It’s very good, it’s easy quaffing, quenching and not distracting or edgy. Which is also the problem as I might like a little more hop roughness at the margins.
The double dip review
I was listening to some music, of course, this by the Indie band “War on Drugs” this is “under the Pressure” off an album “Lost in the Dream”
At different times I thought glimpses of Bob Dylan vocal tones, but then I know as much as music as I do beer.
While the definition of “pilsner” is open to much debate in the beer community, it generally refers to pale, hoppy lagers, ranging from 28vIBUs and up.
