Freisian Pilsener
A modern take on a rare Pils variant. Historically having a bitter hop bite, this Friesian takes it one step further and builds on the German Spalt hops clean bitterness by adding a citrusy-pepper bite from the NZ Pacific Jade. Lagered (cold conditioned) for three whole weeks and finished off by running it for 24 hours through Australian Citra hops in our Sierra Nevada style hop torpedo. Available in 9-gallon casks. Malt: Low Colour Pale & Lager Malt Hops: Spalt Select, Pacific Jade & Citra

Cask conditioned at The Market Porter, Borough Market, London. Yellow gold with white head. Light, slightly watery, grainy, malty beer, thin on the palate, no real shark bite to this unfortunately. Fairly average.

Very pale, thin white head; this was ultra-crisp, clean malt, cereal, lemony tinge; really clean tasting; way, way better than most lagers.

HogTownHarry (6136) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
August 25, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The Mudlark. Hazy light gold with a small frothy white head. Aroma - sour and wort-y, grassy, light alcohol; Tate follows, sourness is more like light sour mash, light and very interesting, what I thought was off is, I think, deliberate and very refreshing. Light, soft and chewy mouthfeel, ephemeral airy carbonation, quick sort of dry lightly acidic finish, no aftertaste at all. Damn, I really dug this one.

larsga (6372) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2013
Small creamy offwhite head. Clear pale yellow body. Light floral peas aroma with sugary notes. Sweet earthy peas taste with strawy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish earthy peas aftertaste with strawy herbal notes. Quite nice, but a bit sweet and earthy, and somewhat slack. (0.284l cask at The Punch Bowl, York. Pump clip says 4.4%.)

Undertang of vanilla or similar? Not wholly pleasant, modest head, with some grass.

JorgeLee (1314) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Cask at the Garden Gate NW3. Curious one this, pilsener on cask? I didn’t like it. Flabby, sweaty malt, no bite to the hops. Carbonation felt too low for the style. Too warm. Bland. Dunno if this was just a bad pint as other reviews seem to have liked it.

jmgreenuk (5227) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 28, 2013
Tap at the Old Royal, Birmingham. Poured a hazy light straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is weak malts. The flavour is weak bitter with a lovely rich thick grassy spicy pepper plate. A really super ale I have to say.
