Gravity at the Stowmarket Festival of Beer and Brewing. Golden with very little off white head. Light citrus aroma. The taste is light floral citrus with a musty after taste.

bottle at home from stravale, via eebria, cheers David!
pours wan bubbly gold wit a thin white lacing. #Quite fruity on nose, may have used a lager yeast but probably fermented at ale temperatures. big body, a little boozy and fruity for the style - closer to a heller bock than a pilsner. finishes a little harsh, hot and vegetal. Not a fan

BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2015
500ml bottle: BBE 11/2015. Poured into an 1980’s Schultheiss sleeve from Berlin at home in 02?2015. Beer obtained from the brewery. Clean, clear and bright: golden with a full creamy textured snow white blanket on top. Like most beers in this type of style the aroma is weak, some grass and grain hints, but nothing more. Nice blend of flavours within the taste, semi-sweet maltiness with a mini-hop bite at the end, again grass and grain like the nose. More than decent, I liked the full body, unusual for the style.

Taste is medium bitter and grainy, with notes of hay, starch, biscuit, bread and grass. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok

Bottle at home. Not a pilsner head myself but came as part of mixed case. Very pleasant as it goes, and certainly smooth for the abv. Good colour, crisp palate, nice touch of citrus. Very quaffable.

A very nice higher alcohol Pilsner from Old Chimneys. Very smooth and certainly a bit weary but really enjoyable and very good for this style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
