Propeller Pilsener (Canada - Nova Scotia - Halifax) 4.8%
A sweet malty but also light tasting Pilsner with a pronounced hop finish that is dry - true to the Pilsner style.
What is neat about this Pilsner is the flavour is mild yet intricate: a malty grain flavour with a hint of nuttiness washes over you before the hops and accompanying bitterness come in late and just to the edge of being very bitter before receding in a pleasant Pilsner-ey aftertaste. The beer is gold in a glass [and ever so slightly cloudy (may just be a chill haze)] and has a lovely aroma that brings through for me all the facets I described in the flavour. A must try for anyone who swears by a Pilsner.
