Hop Nation – Traditional Pilsner 4.8%

    Review by Emily Speakman

    Anyone that appreciates a beer (now, I’m not just talking Craft Beer, I’m talking about a thirst quenching/solid day of housework/warm sunny arvo weather kind of beer) will easily find that this Hop Nation Pilsner deals with any ailment.

    The first batch of this beer sold out insanely quick. Like, the bar stock sold out within a week. Winning Best Pilsner at the AIBAs may have attested to its hasty purchasing by locals. The second batch was brewed without hesitation and here it is!

    Brewed with Bohemian Pilsner Malt and fermented by Bluestone Yeast’s Pilsen strain, you get that grassy/hay aroma. An eight-week lagering gives this a crisp, well refreshing flavour.

    I’m glad it’s in a 440ml can, because I would easy need two smaller cans to quench my thirst.
