The team at Margaret River's Eagle Bay have decided to welcome Autumn with open arms in the form of a traditional Czech style Pilsner. Using fresh rainwater captured on their own farm and their own homegrown hops to create a "fresh and crisp" sessionable lager, their latest has gone on tap at the brewery with a small amount making its way to Perth's Five Bar. The brewers tell us: "It's bright gold in colour with floral aromatics from the handpicked, fresh, green hops from our small plot we grow next to the brewery." The handpicked hops are of the Hersbrucker and Wurtenberger variety, joining Helga and Czech Saaz in the mix. As for what to expect once swigged: "Our Pilsner is well balanced, with subtle fruity characters and a cleansing bitterness to finish."
