From Fernie BC’s Fernie Brewing comes the “Project 9 Pils” part of a mixed 12 case I purchased for Camping. The beer pours a straw yellow colour with a fluffy white head. The aroma consists of biscuit malts, grain, citrus, sweetness and grassy hops. The flavour is of biscuit, grain, mild fruit, grassy hops with little bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 35 although the bitterness is not all that present. This is not a style that I often buy as there just is not enough flavour for me but Fernie Brewing has done a great job brewing this. This will be a favourite for many during the hot Summer months.
Commercial Description: Brewed right in the Canadian Rockies, Project 9 is a true Bavarian Pilsner with exceptional continental hop flavour that can only be achieved by a selection of fine noble hops including the Saaz variety. The use of Munich, Pilsner and Pale western Canadian malts and time honoured brewing methods produces a clean, crisp Bavarian Pilsner that is truly transcendent. People’s Choice Award for Best Beer at the Okanagan Fest of Ale 2014 & Silver Award at Calgary BeerFest!
Food Pairing as per brewery: Great with spicy foods, or a variety of cheeses.
