A unique Australian Pilsner, brewed in Beechworth from Chestnuts grown locally in the Beechworth and Stanley hills. The Chestnut Pilsner also uses Galaxy hops from the Rostrevor Hop Garden in the nearby Ovens Valley. As with any of the worlds best pilsner the most important ingredients is time, and we have allowed this beer plenty of it, with each batch aged for around 3 months before release. Bridge Road Brewers have created a gem of a beer through experimenting with local produce, a truly local brew!
This unique lager is very pale and presents a crisp ípilsnerí like profile combined with a distinct nutty character owing to the use of Chestnuts in the mash. The crisp clean profile of this beer lends itself to the summer months and can be paired with seafood or lighter dishes.

Light orange. Sweet grain with a bit of chestnut in the aroma. Light chestnut, grain, sweet toasty malts odd and interesting.

Bottle. Hazy light yellow with a small and frothy white head. The aroma carries some citrus and grassy hop character with toasted malt notes. Flavour is fairly sweet malt, grassy, citrus. Low level of bitterness. Decent but not what Iíd hoped for.

Great that the nut comes through on first sense. The creamy, nutty texture comes through on taste too. Definitely malty that gives a hint of peanut butter. Beautiful in mouthfeel and a low impact but refreshing end. Be nice beer early in dinner party/BBQ. 5.0%. 1.3std dr. 330ml. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. And an old one at that. Not my favourite bridge road, I didnít get much of the chestnuts but Iíll have to try again fresh.

RafeAU (253) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2014
Tasting at Plonk. I guess I could taste a little of the chestnut nuttiness but it was still a pretty unremarkable pilsner. NB Iím not a big lager/pilsner fan.

I donít think I got what I was promised from this beer. Yes, it is quite interesting on paper, but I didnít taste the chestnuts. I personally think nuts work better in darker beers, specially brown ales.

Bottle from cellar door (October 2014). Hazy pale golden, minimal white head, subtle nutty aroma/flavour over a basic light pilsener, bread/toast, grassy hops, low bitterness, quite dry finish, light body. Nice enough.

Jado (604) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2013
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a thin white head. Light aromas of noble hops, flowers and cut grass. Flavour is malty at the front before a crisp hop bite in the mid-palate. I think I can get the chestnut at the back end, gut itís quite light. Clean finish. Not a bad lager really.

Hazy pale gold beer, little white head. Crispy palate, carbonated bite. Minerals, semi dry. Semi sweet pale malt. Super light citric hops. Forensic trace of chesnut, hardly there. Dry finish. Not bad but the chesnut and galaxy hops are hardly worth a mention,
