Brewer's Notes

This crisp pilsner showcasing NZ Nelson Sauvin and Motueka hops is fermented in the traditional manner using a bottom-fermenting lager yeast at cold temperatures (7°C to start with). This takes time and the beer is cold conditioned (lagered) for at least 4 weeks to achieve the perfect finish.
