Brewer's notes: Black: or thereabouts, with just a shaft of red when held up to the light.
Pils: most definitely. Lean, herbal, spicy and dry with that telltale strawlike malt character for which pils is renowned. A clean and cool fermentation with our favourite lager yeast gives this beer a gentle mineral backbone, while the malt lends a soft, subtle roast character. Spicy hop notes round out the mix making this a straight-up Pils; except it’s black...
Another misnomer – that makes perfect sense.
Looks like a stout, drinks like a pils.
