Originally brewed in the town of Pilsen (Plzeň) in the Czech Republic, pilsner is a pale lager with a crisp, refreshing taste that's lightly hopped. Quality ingredients, careful brewing and fermentation combined with a good lagering period are the keys to making a great Pilsner. Constellation has a medium body, deep golden colour and light mouthfeel. A light malt backbone from the pilsner malt followed by the flowery and herbal notes from the hops gives it a satisfying, refreshing taste. It finishes clean, crisp and mellow.
We felt a pilsner or lager would compliment our other beers well and cater for the drinkers who wanted a cleaner and less hop forward beer. Pilsners are one of great challenges for brewers as there is no place to hide with off flavours.
