There's plenty about Castlemaine Brewing Co’s pilsner that make it a perfectly traditional lager – yet it does have some modern features. The fact it pours with a light but shimmering straw body and fluffy head puts the beer into bohemian pilsner territory, as does the use of Saaz hops to produce those classic, lightly spiced and herbaceous aromas of the noble hop. Then there's a slight bitterness with a building intensity that lingers on the palate once the beer is finished.

Yet the inclusion of the New Zealand hops Riwaka and Motueka make it more akin to those pilsners found across the Tasman. Those Kiwi hops add flavours of tropical fruit and citrus to a clean lager, which is otherwise a wholly traditional affair.
