Balmain Brewing Company
Brewery: Balmain Brewing
Format: 330ml Bottle
The Balmain pilsner was launched in November 2010 following the success of the Balmain pale ale. It's a brew created in honour of the great old Balmain brewery of the 1980's, so fondly remembered by many for its lager and bock at the time.
The re-launched pilsner is in the style of a new world bohemian pilsner, with Motueka hops, as well as NZ Saaz and traditional Czech Saaz, which produce lovely herbaceous fruit driven notes in the aroma. It also has three different malts: Pale Pilsner malt; Caramalt for complexity and colour; and Carapils for biscuit maltiness.
The Balmain pilsner is well balanced with a rounded clean crisp finish, and is the perfect complement to seafood or on its own as an aperitif.
