Formerly known as Bohemian Pilsner.
A hopped up new world Pilsner using all NZ hops, creating a robust, hoppy Pilsner with a refreshing clean crisp finish. NZ Pacific Jade, NZ Motueka, NZ Riwaka, NZ Nelson Sauvin hops. An authentic Czech yeast throws the bitterness forward and enhances the malt.

Taste: Crisp, firm bodied with notes of citrus and grass. Good subtle hop bitterness and light aroma of citrus and malt.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops (bittering: Pacific Jade; flavouring: Motueka, Nelson Sauvin, Riwaka), Czech yeast.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Very pale straw coloured with a malty and bitter grassy flavour, gentle floral fruity flavours followed by a very dry bitter grapefruit finish.

330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.60):
Quite a nice pilsner, one that was clean and very easy to drink with a nice bitterness throughout and plenty of citrus flavours too. There was more hops than I had been expecting from the style but it was a nice surprise that helped the beer down even easier than otherwise might have been the case. Good stuff from Tuatata and a decent pilsner that I wouldn’t mind picking up again.

I reckon one the best new style Pilsners out there....simple as that!......but, dare the new Brewers to have a crack at this style as there are no ’bushes’ to hide behind........;-)

Pours an ever so slightly hazy golden color with fluffy, lasting, white head. Aroma is classic pils with a spicy hop & yeast, and sharp pils malt backbone. Flavor is clean and crisp with a mild sulfur note.

Cruzer (109) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Pretty hoppy for a pilsner. Pours light yellow, little head. Aroma and taste of hops, yeasts, and wheat.

Bottle at Brew, Thonglor, Bangkok. Poured a light hazy straw colour with a big frothy white head. The aroma is dry mineral yeast. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry crisp yeast hop bitter palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Not a great beer but a good Pilsner.
