Driftwood Brewery – Pilsner Doehnel Local Malt Pilsner Review

Driftwood Brewery has been brewing fine ales since opening back in 2008. In doing so however, they have never strayed the way of a lager style beer. The Pilsner Doehnel is the first of its kind brewed as a Czech style Pilsner with local BC flair. This brewery-unique beer comes from the bottle a crisp and clear straw colour with a single finger of head which settles without a trace. The aroma is light and crisp with Czech style malts, light citrus and a defined hop. The malted notes play a key role in the flavour of this beer. While they may be reminiscent of Czech heritage hey are actual grown locally on Vancouver island. A big malted base that rings of euro-tradition and BC styling builds in a crisp and light citrus start into a nice hop center. The finish is a balance of the mix being enjoyable and refreshing. This is an unobtrusive BC beer that is a great start for the Driftwood Brewery in the world of lager style beers.
