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

HogTownHarry (6201) - 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.

Draught (Rockstone, Southampton) - Golden with a white head. Lime, lemon and malt in the aroma. Malty and hoppy taste with lemon, lime and tea detected.
