A golden lager style beer with a rich delicious taste
I saw Black, Red and Gold and I though the Waikato Rugby football team, of course not the German flag. What could go wrong?
A much more hop aroma in this, but it’s not clean and is a bit earthy. Pale pour with a foamy and fluffy head.
Aroma is that familiar hop note that you’d expect.
The hop bite is more forward in this, bit it is still a bit muted and not so much a bite as a stern look.
There isn’t a lot to comment on, the coldness of the beer tends to mute the flavour somewhat and I’m not really expecting anything else to happen as this beer warms or improves.
Like the 5.0 Original this is easy drinking, this isn’t as easy drinking as that one is for me though.
Ingredients the same, Barley, malt, hops, water, they clearly just add a little bit more of this and a bit less of that. Or change the yeast. I’m no brewer.
This is crisp and clean, and lightly flavoured across the palate, making it a beer you just drink without pause and thinking, it’s something you do, not engage with.
Which to be honest isn’t a bad thing sometimes when it comes to beer.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 6 a of its things from the thing. This is easy drinking but it’s just bulk over substance. Nothing to note or nothing stands out in the profile or taste, it’s just cold beer with a mild flavour. I guess that was what they were aiming for.
The double dip review
Music for this, well I was listening to the Veils, This is a version of “Out from the valley”
From the very good album “Time stays we go”
While the definition of “pilsner” is open to much debate in the beer community, it generally refers to pale, hoppy lagers, ranging from 28IBUs and up.
