Longwood Independent Imperial Pilsner Review

Longwood Brewery – Independent Imperial Pilsner Review

The Longwood Brewery, out of Nanaimo BC has brewed up a beer unique to the province’s unique roster of craft beer. The Imperial Pilsner style is rather foreign to the area but Longwood has brewed up a brand new option for BC craft beer enthusiasts. The Independent Pilsner pours from the beautifully decorated bottle a golden-amber colour, topped with a finger and a half of lacing head. The colour of this beer is slightly darker than typical but this is also not your typical Pilsner. The beer smells crisp and fresh like a Pilsner should but also has a defined body to it with a strong hop along side. The flavour starts off crisp with a slightly oily texture which builds into a big-bodied beer. The flavour is not boozy but the higher than typical alcohol content is definitely apparent. In the Independent Pilsner’s mid-section through to the finish, a categorically strong hop takes charge leaving a slightly piney, hop bitter finish. The Independent Imperial Pilsner is a unique beer by BC standards but is extremely well crafted and subsequently delicious. You need to try this beer!
