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.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Draught at AIBA, Melbourne. Hazy golden. Lightly grassy nose. Dryish and crisp with an interesting combination of deep papery malt and hard aromatic crystal malt. The hops with aren’t very noticable in the aroma sparks a pleasantly bitter finish. A good thrirst quencher!

330mL. Another gem from Holgate. Poured a clear straw with a miniscule head leaving no lace. No retention. Aroma is again all butter, old margarine. Maybe a hint of rotting bananas and cooked cherries. Taste is suddy, grassy, bitter, dry. Overall like drinking a pint of old butter.

nfob03. i would struggle in a blind tasting to distinguish between this and the st arnou pilsener. mild sweet saaz aroma, pretty sweet with some late bitterness. served way too cold, if you're going to make a czech-style pilsener why not serve it at cellar temperature like the czechs do?

Draft AIBA 2003: I liked this one, firmly malty, yet soft at the same time, citrusy floral saaz on the finish, well balanced.

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.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2013
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.

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2013
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.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2005
Though this was similar to Elmars Pilsener with the raw hops featuring in the taste, some wheat characters?. Oily,good lacing. Liked this although not bitter enough for higher rating.

Pours a crisp golden colour with no head at all. Hazy in appearance with a heavy hop aroma and mild flavour.
