One of the three beers in the Steel & Oak initial release lineup is their Red Pilsner. From the bomber bottle this New Westminster brewed beer pours as a rich amber colour topped with nearly three fingers of loose, lacing head. The Red Pilsner smells of rich malt, caramel spice and a light, German style hop. The aroma is that of a Pilsner, plus a little more. The flavour is light on the tongue and malt forward. A mild spice and caramel like sweetness adds to the body before a subtle hop bitterness comes near the finish. The Steel & Oak Red Pilsner has the characteristics of a traditional pilsner with a bit extra to separate it from the likes of the competition and offer something unique to British Columbia craft beer fans.
