For anyone familiar with Heads of Noosa Brewing Co’s ethos of lager first, life second, the addition of a pilsner to their core range should come as absolutely no surprise at all. While it’s been available on tap at the Sunshine Coast taphouse for a little while, the brewery is now bottling up the pilsner and adding it to its stable of award-winning lagers.
They take their lagers seriously at Heads of Noosa and this pilsner is no exception. It’s a close-as-you-can-get take on the Bavarian style, which is clean, crisp and bares all. Pouring a clean, golden colour, there’s plenty of telltale spicy noble hop aromas on the nose. It’s got a solid body too, with breadiness and a gentle honey-like sweetness, along with more spicy and earthy notes. This is all balanced by a lingering bitterness and a dry finish, which makes this beer eminently drinkable.
