Brasserie De La Senne – Zinnebir – 5.8%

From the Brasserie De La Senne in Belgium comes Zinnebir at 5.8%. Decapping gives a pleasantly overly hoppy aroma of Belgian noble hops. Good! The pour is deep golden, generating a great thick fluffy head from the higher than average carbonation level.  The taste is certainly down the pilsner route but adding higher than average bitterness in the aftertaste. A bit of a Belgian /german beer hybrid, yet not overly sweet either. The fresh grassy hop aroma ties in wonderfully with a light malty core. Highly refreshing beer that is very sessionable with an all round appeal. Really quite well done. One of my favourite label designs to date.

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).

Fourpure Brewing Co. – PILS – 4.7%

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.
