#91 Green Man – Premium Pils


Name: Premium Pils
Brewery: Green Man (Dunedin, New Zealand)
Style: Pilsner
ABV: 5.4%
Source: Criterion Hotel (Oamaru)

In Oamaru on business. Blogging from phone. Too busy and important for complete sentences.

Had this Green Man Pils at the Criterion last night -Victorian pub with decent beer on tap. Had a pickled egg too – better than you’d think.

Pilsner probably pretty good if you like lager, but I don’t really. Crisp & refreshing and all that, just wanted more hop aroma and bite at the finish. Much preferred Finn’s Green Man Best Bitter – massive malt beast with a good dose of citrussy hops. Made him switch halfway through.

No more time. It’s all go here in Oamaru – meeting with the town crier in five. Lets hope I don’t fall off my Penny Farthing.*

*Update: That wasn’t a joke.  I did actually ride a penny farthing and it was bloody tricky.

  1. I love the Criterion. and I love pickled eggs. Do they not still sell Booky? I have to order it when I’m there, being the birthplace of one of NZ most succesful gateway beers and all.

  2. Nah, no Emerson’s on tap. He said they usually do but it was just Green Man while I was there.
