A brown 500ml bottle of 'Traditional Pilsner' from a small independant English brewer? Best before the end of Nov 2008, two days away.
I poured the bottle two and a half times into one of my Veltins Pilsner glasses.
Almost looks like a Pilsner, a slight haze but golden yellow. Not the normal carbonisation either, no bubbles rising up the body. The white head not as bright or full as a true Pilsner. However it still looks OK.
An aroma which reminds you of lagers/pilsners but with added yeast, some hops and grapefruit hints.
The taste is interesting, a mix of Pilsner and UK Pale Ale flavours. There is a citrus feel within the taste also, not a sour lemon or lime, but something is in there.
There is a body and fullness to this beer, half Ale, half Pilsner. It seems to work, not sure how or why, but it does.
I liked this hybrid beer and would have it again if we crossed paths.

4.18/5 rDev +12.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Appearance: pale yellow, good clarity, thin layer of off-white foam that dissipates to a thin crown
Aroma: lightly honey-ed; angel food cake, apple blossom perfumey hops
Flavor: light malt profile with a fruity combo of apple cider, chamomile, and blossom honey; finishes dryish with a delightful, lilting bitterness
Mouthfeel: medium-light body, sparkling carbonation, crisp texture
Other comments: If pilsener was real ale, it would be like this. This beer is lusciously drinkable and so exquisitely balanced. Excellent beer!
Note: I wasn't sure which BA category to register this as, German or Czech pilsener. I chose Czech because it is closer to that than German because it is light and "fluffy".
