Just like you, but different
I was given a gift of a beer, it doesn’t happen often and I’m always so pleased about it. A new to me brewer too, beer that according to the various apps you can find in good supermarkets around the place.
The Island Pony Club Pilsner which Is from 🇳🇿 Papamoa, New Zealand, and it’s a Pilsener / Pils / Pilsner with an ABV of 5.0%, which as you know is 1.3 standard drinks.
I really liked this, it has a lovely taste with a decent amount of grassy notes. But it lacks that pilsner snap/bite for me and if it had that it’d be lifted to something really nice.
I can’t go past the pdubyah-o-meter which shot up to 7 from 10 of it’s arbitrary thing.
I’m not looking a gift pony in the mouth, and this is a general observation, but when you make a Pilsner/Lager that is the same ABV as a green bottle one that you really have to set yourself aside or differentiate. In this instance this, for me, is different enough and a really fine effort.
I was listening to some Muse on the Spotify player at the time of writing. Nothing wrong with a bit of Muse.
