A unique Australian Pilsner, brewed in Beechworth from Chestnuts grown locally in the Beechworth and Stanley hills. The Chestnut Pilsner also uses Galaxy hops from the Rostrevor Hop Garden in the nearby Ovens Valley. As with any of the worlds best pilsner the most important ingredients is time, and we have allowed this beer plenty of it, with each batch aged for around 3 months before release. Bridge Road Brewers have created a gem of a beer through experimenting with local produce, a truly local brew!
This unique lager is very pale and presents a crisp ’pilsner’ like profile combined with a distinct nutty character owing to the use of Chestnuts in the mash. The crisp clean profile of this beer lends itself to the summer months and can be paired with seafood or lighter dishes.

Hazy pale gold beer, little white head. Crispy palate, carbonated bite. Minerals, semi dry. Semi sweet pale malt. Super light citric hops. Forensic trace of chesnut, hardly there. Dry finish. Not bad but the chesnut and galaxy hops are hardly worth a mention,

Aroma: Very weak nutty smells, not much present. Appearance: Light golden and cloudy, no head? Taste: Light nutty characteristics, light hoppiness. Palate: Medium carbonation and very smooth. Overall: Average pilsnerwith interesting light nutty flavour, not amazing but very smooth and drinkable.

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is light with grassy notes. The flavour is weak bitter and slightly watery grass with some spicy nettle there too. Sounds awful doesn’t it, but it was actually quite drinkable and it has that typical Bridge Road style that seems to run through many of their beers. The palate was smooth and with a little spice to round it off nicely. A "lager" ? Really ? This beer really grew on me the more I drank. Needs to be served cool.

On tap at the Bended Elbow. Served a hazy golden color with a small head that faded to bits of lacing. Aroma of citrus and grain with just a bit of malt sweetness in the background. Taste of hops crispness, mild malt sweetness and a bit of grain. Nice crispness and a dry finish. Fairly light body, crisp and refreshing. Nice beer, fairly average for the style, but enjoyable.
