Red Racer Pilsner

Red Racer Pilsner hails from Surrey, British Columbia. It's brewed by Central City Brewers & Distillers. It came as one part of a mixed six pack of 355mL cans. It contains 5% alcohol.

R.R.P.  pours a clear, sunny gold colour, topped with a white head and chalk full of carbonation. It has a fresh grass and grain aroma. Its crisp body made for a quite refreshing brew. Its classic pilsner flavour features grainy notes and a helping of mown grass--it tastes like a day of yard work, bottled. The profile goes from sweet to bitter, with a relatively significant hop kick at the finish line.

Red Racer Pilsner performs pretty well when compared to its European siblings. It tastes fresh and flavourful, plus its quite refreshing, which is exactly what I'm looking for in a pilsner. It's not wildly memorable, but I don't find that many pilsners are. More importantly, there weren't any notable flaws, at least not to my pretentious but untested palate.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
