Macs Brewery - Hop Rocker (New Zealand)

Macs Brewery Hop Rocker Pilsner
Macs Brewery
4.8% ABV


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.

Scores: -

Aroma 6.5/10
Appearance 3/5
Taste 4/10
Palate 4/5
Overall 11/20

Total 58%
