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.

Muggus69 (2360) - 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 - theres 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!

floydian1 (1432) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 14, 2016
I couldnt 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 (1103) - SINGAPORE - AUG 30, 2016
5%ABV. Pilsner. Poured out gold 8SRM. 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 (1784) - 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.

mcberko (16595) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
On tap at Bridge Road, pours a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and a touch of grassiness. Flavour is crisp, with maybe some of the toasted chestnuts upfront. Dry biscuity finish. Not the most interesting but its clean.

M_Sack (667) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Murky, light straw colour with no head. Looks terrible. Peach, apricot, almond and chestnut aromas. Simplistic but refreshing stone fruit, citrus flowers, a hint of nutiness and a cleansing earthy hop bitterness. A flavoursome Pilsner, good for drinking cold and in multiples. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Capa (3120) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Light orange. Sweet grain with a bit of chestnut in the aroma. Light chestnut, grain, sweet toasty malts odd and interesting.
