When Paul came to visit we naturally went to the bar, where he drank one of our pilsners, which led him to ask if we could brew up a collab pilsner in addition to the IPA we already intended to brew together… so of course we agreed. We love a great pilsner and feel that pilsner is too often demonized in the craft beer community, so this would be the best way to showcase what pilsner can deliver. Light and easy, yet hopped with European only varietals, we went through the choices we have in the hop fridge and found a few that would be perfect. We took the fruity, citrus character of Mandarina Bavaria and the peachy passion fruit notes of Grüngeist, and punched it UP with floral, lemony Perle hops. Then, for good measure, we did it twice again in the dry hopping.

Can at the Wolf, Birmingham. Motorway lager. Straight up. Fruity tang, clippings of tart hedgerow. Fair enough.

planky84 (3514) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2018
Can from Park Fever, Hither Green. Gold pour with a fluffy white head. Aromas of citrus, vanilla, honey, pine. Similar action in the flavour. Refreshing stuff.

Can. Turner’s, Sheffield. 5.8%. Hazy yellow. Blotchy, white head, with lots of lacing. Nose has sweet, cereal grain. A bit worty. Some nice enough hop notes, along the line of citrus and stone fruit. Overall, though, it’s a bit cheap lager-ish. Taste is fairly sweet, with more of the cereal grain. Light hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is decent. Clean, with bright carbonation. Some bitterness to finish, but it’s weighed down by the cereal thing.

25Dec2017 Grain and cereal malts, dusty straw, molasses, artificial sweet, corn syrup. Clay gold, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. Light molasses, sweet grain malts, bread, more sweetener, sickly corn sweetener, medium carbonation, medium bodied. Not quite working for me, too sweet. Can from Independent Spirit, Bath.

ALIBALI (2707) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2017
Style sehr gut getroffen. Schön frischgehopfter Lagersweety mit dem gelungen Minzeabgang. In der Nase muffig grünhoppy, am Gaumen lemondry mit einen Hauch verspielter applecakeyness und nach hinten raus stumpfy GetreideHerbaler :)...kann man machen, aber auch nicht außergewöhnlich. Somit also auch nicht die knapp 6€ für die 0,5l Dose wert. BEYOND BEER Stuff.

LazyPyro (1815) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2017
500ml can. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity and floral, citrus, vaguely tropical. Taste is fruity and floral, stone fruits, orange and lemon, light malts, sweet, low bitterness. Light-medium bodied, average carbonation. An excellent pilsner, loads more flavour than I was expecting.

deanso (10292) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - DEC 24, 2017
Sample on tap at Namtons house bar. Thin white head. Hazy golden pour. Nice bitterness. Good

tmrmwel (2314) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2017
On tap @ Gulating pub, Stavanger. Pours clear yellow, with a creamy head. Aroma is tropical hops, with mango, apricots and citrusy notes, as well as some pale malts. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is tropical hops with apricots, mangoes and zesty citrusy notes, as well as malts with cereals and toffee. A tad on the sweet side.

jamestulloch (4426) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 18, 2017
Can from Bottle Baron. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of lemon and wet grass. Flavour of sweet cereal, pear peel and lemon pith. Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. There’s a faint sourness on the finish I didn’t like. This is like a super sweet macro Lager with a few extra handfuls of hops. I couldn’t finish it.
