Kissmeyer - PilNZer

Brewed by the former brewmaster of Nørrebro Bryghus who went it alone in 2010. The blurb on the back label says...

'Crisp, dry, full bodied German style pilsner gently dry hopped with New Zealand aroma hops for an extra fruity, aromatic and exotic hoppy flavour and taste. A smooth drinking session beer with character.'

With a blurb like that this has a lot to live up to, time to get on with it...

Has a light malty aroma on the pour with honey, grass and citrus.

PilNZer pours clear light yellow gold with a white head. Malt, lemon and grassy on the sweet and fruity intake while the finish is dry and hoppy with a mild bitterness. Has a nice aftertaste of hops and what I can only describe as light herbs and honey lockets. Smooth and light mouthfeel to this without being watery.

I quite like this, it is a bit different from the norm with a good malt and hoppy flavour. I don't know about the crisp bit in the blurb but the rest is as it says. I would have no problem buying or drinking another. Very easy drinking and perhaps a pilsner for industrial lager heads to try something just a little bit different. Summing up, a pretty decent pilsner that you can session on.

This scored 6.5/10 on the 'what is the true definition of a heatwave ?' Beerometer.

Alc : 5%
Where to buy CPH : Superbrugsen
