Blue Tongue Pilsener (Australia)
Blue Tongue Traditional Pilsener
Blue Tongue Brewery
The now deleted Blue Tongue Pilsener is one of the best beers to have come out of the New South Wales' Central Coast. The Blue Tongue Brewery now based in Warnervale (NSW) brews various beers under license and since the brewery has been bought by SAB the brewery has started to pull some of it's smaller brews off the shelves to replace with bigger names such as Peroni and Stella. This is one of their victims...
On the nose this beer has a little yeast, some attractive slightly floral tones from the traditional pilsner Chech Saaz hops. The beer is a clear golden effervescent liquid with a white head. There really wasn't much flavour going on though, the tiniest amount of sweetness and bitterness, almost not enough to comment though. The beer has a creamy mouth feel with a light body. A very refreshing Pilsner - very clean tasting. A great session lager perfect for a summers day but let down with the lack of flavour.
