This gold medal winning New Zealand pilsner derives from the traditional Czech style, brewed with pilsner malt and cold-fermented with lager yeast. We use New Zealand hops and put most of them late in the brew to promote more hop flavour and aroma than a traditional pilsner. A crisp and clean beverage with a beautiful balance of bitterness and sweet malt.
