Fourpure Pils

Rating: 3.6

This one is the first of two Fourpure beers that I’ll be reviewing back to back here after picking both up in a Marks & Spencer store whilst over in the north of Ireland recently. I spotted the beer on my first day in the country and grabbed them since it’s not all that often I make it to a Marks & Spencer store and I’ve previously reviewed one Fourpure beer, their IPA, which I quite enjoyed. This one is their flagship pilsner offering, another can from the brewery which seems to be the only way I can find their beers but I’m not complaining about that. The beer is a traditional German style pilsner with Bavarian yeast plus a mix of Saaz and Hallertauer hops and was one that I was definitely looking forward to trying when I picked it up, mainly due to the fact I enjoyed the same breweries IPA so much, here’s what I thought of this one.

Fourpure Pils

Appearance (4/5): Slightly darker in colour than expected and partially cloudy, this one is a medium amber colour and has a one and a half centimetre tall, foamy white head that comes with good retention whilst leaving a little lace on the sides of the glass.
Aroma (6/10): Light citrus and some grain kick things off here with a little sweetness and hints of honey coming through early on. There’s a few subtle hops present as well before some bread and the odd floral note make an appearance. Overall the beer is well-balanced and fairly fresh but quite light on the nose.
Taste (7/10): Again there is light citrus to start things off with before the bread and some grains make an appearance. The beer has a few grassy hops and light, pilsner style malts coming through around the middle before some biscuit and the faintest bit of sweetness finish things off.
Palate (4/5): Smooth and medium bodied, this one had good carbonation with a nice citrus tang and medium strength bitterness throughout. It was easy drinking with a refreshing and slightly dry feel with quite a crisp finish too.

Overall (14/20): Not a bad pilsner from Fourpure, definitely not as enjoyable as their IPA that I reviewed previous but a nice beer nonetheless and well worth trying if you’ve not had it before. The beer was quite light but as a result proved an easy on to drinking with some subtle hops and few light malts coming through as well.
