A real pilsner true to its traditions, Triple Hop Pilsner uses three distinct hops; one for bitterness at the beginning and two for aroma added later in the brew. The moment you spark up the barbecue is the moment to take the top off a Triple Hop Pilsner, perfect beer match with anything from the sea; snapper or cod you choose.

TedE (1246) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2016
Pint on tap, Adelphi Kaikoura. Sparkling pale amber beer with solid white head. Steady carbonation. Hoppy vegetal nose. Watery and sad. Slight sweetness in the finish, lots of tin. Macro nightmare, hard to enjoy.

Bottle from Tappoo Liquor in Sigatoka 090816. This beer is super hoppy for a pilsner, I guess thats where the triple hopped part comes in. There is a lot more flavour in this beer than I was expecting including passionfruit, citrus and hops. Full bodied with a long clean aftertaste. Looks okay in the glass with a strong orange colour and a wispy thin layer of white foam. Clean and refreshing in the mouth.

Imagine that youre in a bar with a limited range of mass-market beer, You spy the words "Triple Hop", and allow yourself a glimmer of hope. In a perfect world, the accountants who brew this would triple the amount of hops they add, but sadly they must have simply had 3 small sacks of stale hops from which the labels had been lost. The marketing department heard the wailing and decided that this was in fact a selling point. You can fool me once, Lion Breweries

KeefOz (1800) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2014
Tasted 9/2/2014. Draught at "Right Track Sports Caf", Auckland, NZ. Poured a clear pale golden colour with a maximum of a one-finger white frothy head that diminished quickly. Lacing virtually nil. Carbonation very low with small to medium sized bubbles. Aroma slightly of sweet malt and a subtle trace of yeast. Taste bland - sweetish with no hops bitterness at all; lager-like. Light body. Bland lager-like - forgot to put any hops in, let alone triple hop it. Not a pilsner.
