Tap in the Holborn Whippet. This was a glorious pint of pilsener, well balanced, rich mouthfeel, good strong hopping and most importantly tasted super fresh. Pilseners seem so sensitive to freshness, don’t know what it is about the style but the minute it gets past its peak they become flat or vegetabley, and if you bottle them it gets metallic. This was one of the best pints of lager I’ve had, I reckon.
