Stratford Pilsner

My partner and I recently picked up tickets for Titus Andronicus at the Stratford Festival.  This made me think that it was about time to review this eponymous little brew.  Stratford Pilsner is produced by the Stratford Brewing Co.  It is sold in 341mL bottles and has an alcohol content of 4.9%.

SP pours a slightly cloudy gold colour.  There is a thin but persistent white head and lots of lace.  The aroma suggests sweetness; it has a slight honey scent.  Not surprisingly, it tastes sweet, slightly malty and has notes of citrus fruit.  The aftertaste is sweet, but with an element of hops bitterness.

It's sold in fairly spartan packaging that doesn't really draw the eye, but all told, this is a pretty nice pilsner with some character.  It's a little oversweet and a bit wanting in the crispness department, but a good brew nonetheless.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
