COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lager, Lager, Lager! The biggest selling beer on draught at Holgate Brewhouse. Our Pilsner is a true European style lager - a light straw colour brewed with bucket loads of Czech Saaz hops. This lager is the ultimate session beer, but also offers enjoyment for the beer enthusiast with a clean malt palate and grassy/floral hop aroma and flavor. Crisp and refreshing anytime, the Holgate Pilsner matches well with seafood or rich dishes such as deep fried fish and chips or pizza. Available in bottle and draught.

Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is malt, citrus with some saaz hops. Taste is light sweet leading to a light bitter finish. OK.

Bottle at Taps Beer Bar Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear light straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is pretty weak malt leading to a medium bitter, hoppy, aromatic flavour. A rather drinkable refreshing Pilsener that won’t win too many awards or friends.

A clear brighter yellow. White ring head. The aroma is a little fruity and the taste sweet. At least the finish is a little bitter amd the body overall light though satisfying without being filling.

Pours a clear golden color with a fair head that fades to some lacing. Aroma is light and fresh with some citrus and bit of malt sweetness and bit of grain in the background. Taste of citrus and malt sweetness with a bit of fresh grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp and quite refreshing. Not a bad beer for the style.

330ml bottle pours straw in color with a small white head that fades quickly leaving some spotty lacing behind. Aroma is mild but pleasant grains and grass. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light touch of citrus and a light malty sweetness. Light bodied with modest carbonation. A decent brew for the style and worth a try.

Tap. Light honeyed nose. Good body. Honey and grain in the mouth with a decent, though not too hoppy finish. Good, easy drinking.

Bottle. Very pale gold with a small white head. Grainy aroma with some earth, grass and butterscotch. Taste is sweet and quite fruity with a little balancing bitterness. The butterscotch fades down the glass and the end becomes drier. Would have guessed this a pale ale and I rather fancied a pilsener.

Pour at Warners at the Bay Beer Festival 2010. Quite basic, a light hop aroma and flavour, but mostly thin and watery. Still beats having a shitty pale lager any day.
