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.

Bottle. Cloudy vibrant golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is fruity with yeasty bitterness, and the flavour is dry with hops and light yeasty bitterness. Overall a really nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2018 330 ml bottle. Appearance is a cloudy straw gold, topped with very thin white froth. Aromas are dominated by water chestnut and chestnut, little hops or malts aroma otherwise. Taste is sweet, again water chestnuts, some nuttiness, over indistinct malts. Crispness comes from the carbonation, but distracts from the flavours.

Pale gold with a thin white head. Unsurprisingly the first thing I smell is "bloke on corner roasting chestnuts on 44 gallon drum", little bit of biscuity malt too. Flavour hints at woody, roasty, nutty, malty, with slight bitter finish. This wasn't too bad at all - don't know if I could drink more than one but it was definitely interesting.

PabloZab (1751) - Wroclaw, POLAND - AUG 11, 2017
Bottle 330ml. Gold colour with white, very nice looking, head, good lacing. Pilsner notes in aroma, a little bit sweet, no hops. Classic in taste but it’s too small malty, too small hoppy, it’s similar to concern beer. Medium carbonated, low bitterness, medium light, drinkable but generally nothing special.

JuanFernandes88 (72) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2017
Very clear and light appearance similar to champagne/cider. Aroma of light malt and chestnut with chestnut being the prominent flavour. Crisp clean finish with not much bitterness. Interesting take on a Pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s, Glen Waverley, Melbourne. Hazy pale straw with OK head. Slight nutty woody aroma. Mild bitterness with sweetish body and finish. OK.

Muggus69 (2807) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2017
330mL bottle from Boozebud. Bottled 20/07/2016 Pours a hazy straw body, dense sort of white head. Light aroma - cereal, bready pilsner sort of malts, slight touch of floral honey & hop undertone. Texture is interesting - there’s a distinct creamy, slickness about it that adds extra weight to an otherwise crisp light bodied beer. Bread crust malts continue on the body, touch of lightly toasted nut with floral, slightly leafy hop character sneaking through lending a mild sort of bitterness to proceedings & a clean dry finish. An enjoyable pilsner!

Really nicely surprised. Subtly, tasty and a good strength! Surprised it’s not rated higher

floydian1 (1519) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 14, 2016
I couldn’t detect any nutty notes but this is nonetheless a pretty decent Aussie-brewed pilsner in the German style. Light pale malts and a pleasant herbal dry hop bitterness. Nice crispy effervescent light-medium bodied palate. Pours clear bubbly pale yellow with a lasting white head. (330ml bottle - no BB date).

drjoeng (1466) - SINGAPORE - AUG 30, 2016
5%ABV. Pilsner. Poured out gold 8ºSRM. Nose has some clean beery aromas. Light pine. Mouthfeel is beery. Lightly carbonated and light. Palate has pale malt, waterchestnut sweetness, like the local waterchestnut beverage. No hops except for vague wood-like astringency at the end. Finish is light and beery.

KeefOz (1953) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2016
Poured a crystal clear pale golden colour with a one- to two-finger bright white foamy head that retained very well and laced well. Carbonation very high with medium sized bubbles. Aroma of sweetish malt and no obvious hops. Taste of slightly sweet malt and a hint of nuts and no hops bitterness. Light body. Crisp, smooth, clean and refreshing with a very lager-like finish. More a lager than a pilsner.
