Macs Brewery - Hop Rocker (New Zealand)
Macs Brewery Hop Rocker Pilsner
A highly hopped Pilsner from New Zealand using Crystal Malt, Nelson Sauvin and New Zealand Cascade hops.
Immediately beautiful summer aromatics are present with a gone off funky smell. The beer is a pale golden liquid with a very fast disappearing white head. It has a peculiar flavour - couldn't quite place it, possibly biscuit or off chocolate biscuit. I wasn't a fan. The beer has a light body with a grassy aftertaste. This is a very different tasting pilsner, quite unique - but this one is not for me.
