Vancouver’s Postmark Brewing has brewed a lager, it’s Pilsner, bucking the trend away from all lagers and towards only ales.
The beer is a beautifully clear, you see right through it. An orange-tinged gold with vigorous carbonation visible this is an inviting summer beer. The head is snowy white and frothy, quickly gone but pleasant while it is there.
The aromas are pleasantly subtle, a maltiness on the nose with some light, crisp acidity.
There is nice hay flavour, underlaid with some light fruit, green apple and pineapple, very subtly. Hops add a very light bitterness that lingers for a long time. The bitterness balances very well against the main flavours.
This is a nice summer session beer, I could drink 4 or 5 of these over an evening. I think I’ll bring this to my next outdoor theatre.
