Just like you, but different
It is BeerJerk Beer Club beer of the week, a more traditional summer beer really, which is handly as it is still the back end of a long summer. The BeerJErk NZ beer club has a great choice of beer this week, and I’m keen.
Untroubled lemon-lime and mango ice block
This is 500ml bottle of a 4.5% ABV beer that is also 20 IBU, with a 126 calories a serve and some 1.8standard drink units.
Parleyer is a hop-forward pilsner with a pleasant light and spritzy character and a low key citrus and pine aroma.
Parleyer is the latest addition to our Funky family. This swagalicious pilsner is sure to fuel the good times and get you parleying Funk Style. This beer comes out at nice 4.5% making it the perfect beer to keep you going.
So take the afternoon off, get some sun, grab your pals and parley.
So, what could possibly go wrong?
That’s a bursting aroma of grassy hoppiness, tremendous.
Right then the aroma, again I get, and it must be me, an overwhelming plastic thing. I know it’s me and I’ll figure it out one day, I guess it is supposed to be more grass like.
The beer itself isn’t really crisp enough, but it has a bus-load of lime in the body that adds a zest and life that was unexpected and quite pleasant.
Might have also though it could have been sharper around the edge and had a bit more ‘bite’ about it on the tongue.
As a summer evening beer though, can’t really go wrong, it has a couple of surprises, and that’s always a thing.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 of its things from the thing. It certainly isn’t a blinder of a beer by any measure, although that lime burst was something that was pleasant, it doesn’t have any bite to it, which is a shame, but it looks great. A beer that looks to deceive really. Nice enough, but then nice is for the others.

While the definition of “pilsner” is open to much debate in the beer community, it generally refers to pale, hoppy lagers, ranging from 28 IBUs and up.
