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).
From the Fourpure Brewery in London comes ‘PILS’, an amazingly crisp, moderately bitter pilsner style beer with a cloudy hazy amber colour. Sweet german hop aroma dominates the beer with hints of grass, lemon and sour berries. It’s a well carbonated beer, full of body and a great frothy head retention. More ‘lagery’ than i’d hoped for, nothing special for the style, but darn refreshing.
From Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat in Belgium comes a Pilsner style beer sporting fresh aromatic saazs type hops, a little grassy in aroma, but adding to the fruity aftertaste in this beer. The aftertaste is hardly bitter at all and a bit grainy tasting. A good level of carbonation for the style. Overall slightly sour and malty. Not too bad, but not great either.
