This unique brew from the Better Bitters Brewing Company in Burlington, Ontario is the perfect compliment to a light snack. Nickel Brook Green Apple Pilsner blends light beer with a surprisingly natural green apple flavour to create a crisp and refreshing treat. It has a slightly cloudy appearance, golden wheat colour and creates a very small, short-lived head when poured.
Nickel Brook Green Apple Pilsner has an unsurprisingly strong green apple aroma. It has a crisp and bitter taste with a hint of sweetness and an almost sour finish that gets balanced by hops. This slight hop finish is really the only trace of beer taste that I get from this pilsner. Thankfully the brewers have achieved a great taste balance between sweet and sour and the green apple flavour is not overbearing like in a cider or wine cooler.
