I popped into Duncan Murray’s shop for a natter yesterday and he’d just taken a delivery of new stock.
In amongst all the boxes of De Molen and DuPont was a case of this little chubby 330ml bottle of pilsener.
I’d bought it before he had chance to price it up.
Light and airy and with a super sharp citrus tang, this is a very nice pilsener indeed.
As I poured I could smell herbs and lemons, and the beer sat in my glass a lovely bright and light straw with a fluffy cloud of a head.
There’s a very nice snappy malt at the heart fo this beer that’s biscuity but speckled with white pepper, aniseed and pine nuts.
It’s smeared in runny caramel too, and this gives a good sweetness around the edges.
As for the hops, well, they’re a lot bigger than I expected them to be, and they shine.
Big glowing fresh lemon juice, dry sapling pith, intensely green and herbal, the hopping is so dry and crisp that it just goes on forever.
I only wish that it came in a bigger bottle.
