Amundsen Brewery - Run To The Pils

Amundsen Brewery - Run To The Pils

Packing & wrapping, bit of bar work and dropping/ruining of a nice can of beer were parts of my below average day of enjoyment....but, had a beer to look forward to.

Can had a Native American skeleton running across a desert while on fire in vivid rainbow colours....what more could you want!

Fantastic opening, even after the missus shook it over my head, and the first smell was full of malt and pine up the ol'nose. The following swig was more of the same with those strong scents hitting the tastebuds along with a hoppy push and bitter finish. To be honest I'm not overly keen on this one, as I usually like the fuller fruity or citrus tastes and a bit less bitterness, but you can still tell that this has an abundance of quality ingredients in it. I love alot of the other offerings from this brewery, but on this occasion, as a pilsner, the heavy malt and more bitter finish just aren't quite balanced for me.

Happy Thursday anyway, and Cheers!

Fresh and citrusy smells fire out after the can opening, just what I needed. First swig doesn't have that hoppy punch you may expect from an IPA, but a creaminess contains those flavours and delivers them in a different way. The punchyness is there with that lactose mouthfeel that coats the tongue really nicely, which gives a smooth delivery of those beautifully balanced ingredients.

First smell is a solid stout one of coffee with a sweet background. The following swig delivers that beautiful sweetness that is certainly reminiscent of smooth syrup over pancakes, before that coffee taste comes in. Have to say that the more I hit it back, the more I liked it, as the balance of coffee and sugary syrup came into play.

First smell just tells you I'm an IPA with full fruity flavours bulking under the snout. The following swig just gives you an electric shock of powerful hops that are a real eye opener, then straight behind is that thick mouthfeel giving you tropical flavour. Each swig after packs a punch, but a more subtle peachy tone starts coming through to end the taste.
