Well it has been way too long since there was a beer review, and what better time than a Monday! I guess it is sunny outside too, so that is a positive as well.
Anyways, this is a relatively new beer from Hop City, called Polly want a Pilsner. So based on the name of the beer, yes you are correct, this is a pilsner.
Based on the statistics of the beer, it is relatively tame, with a 5.0% ABV, and a 30 IBU rating. So right off the hop (see what I did there, Hop, Hop City) this is a refreshing beer and quite tastey at that.
Polly want a Pilsner is a traditional German/Czech style pilsner, brewed by Hop City based out of Brampton Ontario. I drank the beer straight from the can, so as for appearance, the can is green….. as you can tell from the photo….
It was a warm day when I had this beer, sun was shining, and the beer was nice and cold. The first mouthful well to be honest, I didn’t taste, it was more of a refreshing gulp… After that when I started to taste the beer, I was pleasantly surprised. It was like I said a refreshing beer, there was no bad aftertaste, it was not hoppy, just like a normal pilsner, but more flavorful. It is kinda hard to explain, but I would recommend you grab a can of this for sure.
For the overall experience with Polly want a Pilsner, it was good! It hit the spot, and honestly may be one of the newcomers for beer this summer to grab for a post ride pint.
