Czech Mate Pilsner Paddock Wood

Czech Mate Pilsner (Paddock Wood)

Ratebeer 3.04 44th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

A big thanks goes out to Nightware for introducing me to this great Saskatoon craft brewery. I picked up their Big Box o' Beer from Firefly. In case anyone is wondering, Firefly has an epic selection of craft beer. This is my new favourite place to go. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Taste +4

I am normally not a fan of pilsners, but this one is well done. The nose is very light with straw, grass, honey and herbal/flower hops. The taste is creamy and slightly bitter/citrus tart hops. This one is not watery at all and very refreshing. The body carries a little lemon bread.

Aftertaste +1

The tart/bitter hops (Saaz) slowly fades away to a crisp ending.

Alcohol Content 0 5.2%

Value +1

This was a very refreshing brew; well done.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Just to bump the score up.

Overall 7/10

This is a pils had the correct way. It is refreshing in taste and not watery tasting like other 'pilsners' one the market.
