Bass Point Brewing ‘The Shallows’ Pilsner


“Dear Fro, we remember when you tried your first Pilsner, you had clearly discovered your new favourite style of beer. Well, we have come up with this ultra refreshing, traditional style Pilsner, that we reckon you’ll love. The slightest hint of spice and snap with each sip, it’s thirst-quenching. Enjoy!”

Glassware: Stemmed tulip.

Appearance: Nice and light straw golden pour and a frothy two finger head perched on top. Good retention and nice legs running down the glass.

Aroma: Wow it’s very well polished. Super classy pilsner here…and traditional AF! It displays a lovely spiciness alongside more subtle notes of wilted herbs, florals and wet grass. There’s a distinct cereal grain to it…corn kernels, uncooked rice and barley which puts the finishing touches on this excellent aroma.

Flavour: Mirrors the aroma perfectly. It’s bringing the crisp, spicy and exquisitely balanced notes of soft florals, grass and cereal grains. It just has this superb Noble hop quality which is on par with some of the best European Pilsners. It delivers a clean, mildly bitter finish with a hint of herbal spice drawing out.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light on and refreshing texture. Perfectly carbed and the 4.6% ABV is spot on for the style.

Overall: This is a seriously impressive Pilsner. We’ve been surprised by unknown breweries before but this would have to rate somewhere near the top. It’s just a straight up and down quality Euro Pilsner done as well as the likes of Urquell, Weihenstephaner etc.
