Freisian Pilsener
A modern take on a rare Pils variant. Historically having a bitter hop bite, this Friesian takes it one step further and builds on the German Spalt hops clean bitterness by adding a citrusy-pepper bite from the NZ Pacific Jade. Lagered (cold conditioned) for three whole weeks and finished off by running it for 24 hours through Australian Citra hops in our Sierra Nevada style hop torpedo. Available in 9-gallon casks. Malt: Low Colour Pale & Lager Malt Hops: Spalt Select, Pacific Jade & Citra

GBBF Day 4. Cask. The great Harrisoni/madmitch76 walkabout. Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is pretty flat for a Pils. Light clean malts. Light hops. Briefly minty but also a little citrus. Light flat finish. A mild vinegar sourness runs throughout. Another brewer falls at the mighty walls of cask pilsner!

Recent ratings shock me - let this traditional lager hater step in and spread a little lager love. Lovely fruity estery aroma, citrus and peach. Full smooth palate. Really bready taste. I cant believe this is a lager, so full and rich, and so estery too. Not a pilsner, thats for sure. Finish had lovely peppery hops though. Enjoyed.
