Pilsner – Gladstone Brewing

From Courtenay BC’s Gladstone Brewing on Vancouver Island comes their “Pilsner”.  The beer pours a straw yellow with a white head.  The aroma consists of grain, biscuit, citrus and floral hops.  The flavour is of biscuit, grain, citrus, sweetness, grassy and a very mild bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 35.  As a person that does not get excited about pilsner usually this was actually very tasty!

Commercial Description:  Resulting from the advent of pale malt in the 19th century in what is now the Czech Republic, Pilsner was the original pale coloured beer. Once pale malt became widely adopted, Pilsner and lagers in general became the preeminent beer style in the world.
