Meantime – Pilsner – 4.4%
From the Meantime Brewery in Greenwich, London comes their Pilsner at 4.4%. Really gassy on De-capping yet quite fragrant and citrus fruity. The taste is almost like a banana chocolate hybrid kind of aroma with hints of grass etc for the German Hops. Absolutely no head retention, but good carbonation and a straw like colour. Mouth feel is pretty decent, not much of a tongue prickle. No apparent aftertaste other than fruitiness. For a style I’m not too keen on, it’s the best pilsner I’ve had to date so far (I think).
