Emerson’s flagship beer, this Pilsner is a showcase for the Nelson region’s bold Riwaka hops which feature strong tropical characteristics.
Nelson in New Zealand is renowned for the hops grown in the region, including Riwaka, a bold hop featuring strong tropical characteristics. Emerson’s Pilsner, probably the best example of a New Zealand-style pilsner, is a showcase for these hops and the bold fruitiness in each expertly brewed sip is reminiscent of the Marlborough region’s world famous sauvignon blancs. Emerson’s Pilsner releases appealing aromas and flavours of citrus and passionfruit, and offers a palate that is rich and dense but also very drinkable, with a hint of early malt sweetness. Savour the silky mouthfeel and appreciate the lengthy dry finish of a pilsner that is Emerson’s flagship beer, in a league all of its own.
