Wayward Brewing Pilsner

Wayward Brewing Co

Published October 12, 2018

When the Wayward range was rejigged and repackaged towards the end of 2018, the Pilsner was one of two new recipes to be debuted. And after a couple of sips you get a sense they’d put a lot of effort into getting this recipe right. After all, there’s a common line in the brewing world that beers of this ilk are the toughest to make, their lighter body and character limiting the ways a brewer can hide a potential flaw, so you really ought to get it right. This one’s hard to fault.

Being an Australian version made with Vic Secret hops it’s a fruiter beer than its classic European counterparts but pays fine homage in the way a slightly spicy hop element combines with a subtly-done doughy malt character and a beautifully crisp and clean bitterness. It’s easy to imagine Wayward’s Pilsner becoming a go-to at any summer session where simple tastes call for something refined.
