A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Herevana – North End – Ngaio Road Pilsner

I purchased a mix case of North End beers, from the lovely people at BeerHug in NZ, a little something from all parts of the spectrum, Sours, Saison, Pales to Stouts.

North End Brewing Co make the North End Pilsner in Waikanae Beach, Wellington, 🇳🇿  New Zealand

North End Ngaio Road is a beer in the style that is Pilsener / Pils / Pilsner and has an ABV of 5% and 28 IBU things – this is 1.3 standard drinks in NZ

Back on familiar ground, and this is is lovely.

Grassy hoppy taste with lower carbonation and a lot of lovely aroma.

Outstanding taste, fully there.

I can’t say enough about magnificent int is to have a full flavour noise and drama Pilsner beer like this, lots and lots that remind you Pilsners have been driven down to pale green glass 12 packs of bulk over substance.

This is decent beer done well.

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as a 8 on the arbitrary number scale. I really like the full aroma, and that outstanding hoppy grassiness, and it does that without being bitter, edgy, rough or difficult and I recon I could easy go a night on this and not get bored.

Music : Elbow – Elbowrooms – might have played it before, will always play it again.

Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.

Philip himself.

generously hopped Pilsner takes the Bohemian style of aromatic lager and reforms it with a generous dose of Nelson grown hops. Citrus, spice and tropical fruit float over a sweet malt base before a firm bitter finale. A revelation of Kiwi ingenuity

Brewers Notes

Pilsener / Pils / Pilsner

The classic “German Pils” – also known simply as “Pils”, “Pilsner” or “Pilsener” – is a light-bodied, highly-attenuated, gold-colored, bottom-fermented bitter German beer showing excellent head retention and an elegant, floral hop aroma. Crisp, clean, and refreshing, it showcases the finest quality German malt and hops. The use of the term Pils is more common in Germany than Pilsner to differentiate it from the Czech style. Lighter in body and color, drier, crisper, and more fully attenuated, with more of a lingering bitterness, and with higher carbonation than a Czech Pilsener. More hop character, malt flavor, and bitterness than International Pale Lagers and more hop character and bitterness with a drier, crisper finish than a Munich Helles although the helles has more malt flavor, but of the same character as the Pils. The style also includes the 2 following substyles. The “Italian-Style Pilsner”, an hoppier Pilsner generally using old-world German hops for dry-hopping. The “New Zealand Pilsner”, a slightly maltier and less crisp take on the German Pils showcasing New Zealand hop varieties.
