Pilsner – Red Racer Brewing (Dec 2, 2014)

Beer Advent Calendar 2014

From Red Racer Brewing (Central City Brewing) out of Surrey BC comes there “Pilsner”.  This craft pilsner pours a straw colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of grainy/bready malts, citrus and some grassy hops.  The flavour is of bready malts, citrus, lemon and a mild hops bitterness.  The alcohol content is 5% with and IBU of 30.  I am not a big lager or pilsner fan but this is a good representation of a pilsner and would be good on a hot summer day.

Commercial Description:  Red Racer Pilsner is brewed in the classic Bavarian tradition, using only the finest two-row barley, and hops from the Hallertau region of Germany. This light and golden Pilsner has a distinct hop aroma and flavour, with a dry, crisp finish.

Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows:Fried oysters with spicy remoulade.

    I agree – not a lager drinker myself, but my German father-in-law would probably like this one, and it was easy enough and pleasant to drink. I’ve been wanting to try it, so was happy when I pulled it out of the box.
