Another Great Growler review! This Growler fill comes from the Prince of Wales Hotel Bottlelo in Merewether Newcastle Australia. An awesome unique brew to review a White Chocolate Pilsner!
This brew hails from the Bacchus brewery up in Brisbane Queensland Australia which is situated at the Homebrew shop where I got my Basic Keg set up from. Great bunch of blokes to deal with if you are into home brewing by the way.
Anyways on to the brew review!
a wonderful bright golden hue with a fluffy white bubbly head which
hangs around for a while. On the nose a big vanilla essence aroma along
with some noble hop spice.
Had this one nice 'an cold goes down
smooth as with a quite vanilla bean ice cream/custard flavor on the
front then towards the end the slight but present bitter bite that is
expected from a decent pils.
refreshing and abit sweet but with that bitter finish this is a awesome
example of experimental brewing at its best. Not overdone at all. The
grains used and hops work well with the white choc.
For a food match this one is quite hard
perhaps Mexican food would work with this one. Tangy Salsa and soft
tacos come to mind when having a slightly sweet pils at hand.
I used to like white chocolate quite alot when I was younger (Herseys
cookies and cream bars hmmm) and now I have found the PROPER beer
equivalent and its does it's job well.
