Eagle Bay 90 Day Pilsner – 2023 Edition

Style
Pilsner
ABV
5.2%

Eagle Bay’s 90 Day Pilsner returns for a second run boasting more hops and offering a starkly different outcome from its original release.

The 90 days of conditioning that give the beer its title have yielded a crystal-clear pour, further enhanced by a light foamy head and spritzy carbonation. A clean yeast profile, with some minerality and herbaceous hop character, leads on the nose, backed by lemon and lime. The pronounced hop profile is thanks in part to a staggered dry hopping regime: Motueka at 26 days; Nelson Sauvin at 52; and Motueka again at 78. A mild bitterness pairs well with bready and nutty malt character, while a touch of sweetness is well-placed alongside some persisting notes of herbs, fresh cut flowers and light fruity notes, before a dry a finish.

Eagle Bay’s 90 Day Pilsner was initially an experiment that yielded good results; with that initial success in mind, the brewing team are building on the concept to produce a beer that showcases both extensive lagering – AKA patience – and a smart approach to hopping.
