Russell Brewing Co. – Eastern Promises Czech Pilsner Review
The Russell Brewing Company has been in the business of craft beer since 1995 and they do a lot of things very well. A Czech Pilsner is not something to take on unless you are very confident as there is some world-renowned competition around every fridge door. The Eastern Promises is a darker than average amber-straw colour with a single finger of quickly dispersing head. The aroma is light with crisp malts and a touch of honey sweetness balancing things out. When you take your first sip the beer is very light and airy. The beer seems to float on your tongue with a light and crisp Czech malt flavour. as the taste progresses a light sweetness comes in just before a hop-bittered finish. The Eastern Promises remains light, crisp and highly drinkable while bringing out the flavours that we love from a Czech Pilsner. This is a great beer that I think even a Czech may just approve of.
