Three Boys Pilsner is a taste of Europe with a new world twist. Like the pilsners of old, it balances pale malt flavour and saaz hop bitterness. The Three Boys take it a step further using modern varieties of saaz hops grown in New Zealand, which give it that little bit extra aroma and flavour.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2018 500ml bottle. This is the actually the first craft beer I ever tried as a 15yr old school boy. To be honest, I remember it being a bit better back when it had the 'this is a living beer' phrase taped over the cap. Its still nice but doesn't really rate compared to so many other good kiwi pilsners from the likes of Zeelandt, Tuatara and Emersons. I like the traditional pilsner approach, but that kind of dictates you to make a much better beer.

Bottle shared at Chris & Ruth´s House. A almost clear pale golden beer with a small most good lasting white head. Aroma of grassy and spicy hops, crisp hops. Taste of grassy bitter hops, green hops, pale malt, nice!

500ml bottle. Clear, deep golden colour with average, frothy to macropore, slowly osteoporosing, minimally lacing, snow white head. Spicy malty and herbal-grassy, slightly citrusy hoppy aroma, a waxy touch. Taste is grassy, bitter hoppy, minimally citrusy and waxy, a touch of lime, spicy malty basis.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 500 ml bottle. BB 31/May/2017. Thanks Timo A!
Cloudy pale golden color with a small white head. Fresh grassy and fruity hops, dryness, bitterness and some grainy maltiness in the aroma. Nice. The flavor is grassy hops, moderate bitterness and grainy malt. Quite alright.

Can. My first from this brewery and what a start. Golden very clear appearance. Smooth creamy and crisp flavour. Some hoppiness as well.How can a pils be so tasty -its a miracle. And its in a can-fantastic.

A grower. First aroma and taste are disappointing for those of us with little class. It could be any euro-slosh from a green bottle. But after a few sips, it starts expanding, the hay, grass, hops, bread dough, and touch of lemon become more 3-D, without any tacky show-boating. The light, not over-done malt, the good not over-done level of bitterness, the long dry finish mitigated by a touch of sweetly sour lemon conspire to make this an under-stated gem which I can’t wait to try again. Extra point for its reasonable price.
