Steamworks Brewing Co. – Pilsner Review

I have eyed up the Steamworks Pilsner for some time now. With the launch of their line of bottled beers this was always a beer that I had great expectations for. Following the BC beer Awards this beer had some extra hardware tied to it making the story all the more compelling. Without further adieu, the Steamworks Brewing Co. – Pilsner. This beer is golden in colour and pours into the glass with a thick finger of head. The aroma is full of malt as a traditional pilsner should be. There is a slight hop to the smell but the malted notes take priority. The taste starts off with a crisp malt and a well carbonated flavour. There is a touch of citrus that comes in before a lightly bittered finish. This Pilsner is more crisp than expected in the start and finishes off with a greater than expected hop kick. While traditional may be slightly bland this is just a touch more – giving it enough to really be unique and enjoyable while keeping within the reigns of tradition.

    Good to see some love for this gem from Steamworks. I would take it even further and say this Pilsner is perfect in every way. The absolute best pilsner I have ever tasted period. This is my first choice on a hot sunny day and it never dissapoints. 5/5. If you like light colored, crisp, refreshing beer that is full of flavour you will love this brew.
