Windsor & Eton Republika (4.8%)

It looks like spring might be well and truly with us, along with a lack of rain and hosepipe bans.
But never mind, conserve water by drinking beer instead.
And what better beer to celebrate the springing of spring than an absolutely brilliant little Pilsner.
Rich orchard fruits, round and juicy, supported by a big chewy malt with hints of pine nuts and hedgerow greenery.
The aroma is all honey and white flowers, mown lawns and a splash of squished gooseberries.
Then the hops catch up.
They’re ultra crisp, super dry and as long as a very long thing lounging on a long hot day.
If this is, as the bottle claims, Windsor & Eton’s first attempt at a lagered beer, I for one can’t wait to try their second.
