COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A ‘Kiwi Classic’, Pilsner is a showcase for Nelson grown Riwaka hops. Its overt fruitiness begs comparison with Marlborough’s world-beating Sauvignon Blancs. Emerson’s Pilsner oozes citrus and passionfruit aromas and flavours. The beer’s palate shows a hint of early malt sweetness but develops a lengthy dry finish.

A fine tap beer, but no more than fine. Aroma was minimal, but a good bitter body and aftertaste. Mild citrus

Draft at the brewery. Clear straw color with a lacy white head. Aroma is grass, funky NZ hops, white grape skin, grain. Flavor is balanced and dry, medium bitter with nice hoppiness. Light and drinkable but not thin. Really good.

poured from a keg amazed I haven’t tried this before yellow gold & consistently lacy with an appealing malty light fruity aroma this tastes really good crisp fresh bitter fine blend of malt hops & fruity flavours without anything being too dominant

Tried on tap at Fine Wine Delivery Co. Light gold in colour and minimal head with a slight malty aroma. A very approachable pilsner, nice and fresh off tap too.
