3 Ravens Thornbury Pilsner is lovely and balanced. Malty, nutty, floral, herbal. 3 Ravens Thornbury Pilsner is a really well put together beer and easy to drink.
3 Ravens came to life in 2003. If I remember correctly, it was originally a tiny brew set up for an Engineering firm. But they loved the beers and turned them in a commercial product. Their original brewery used to shop with me so I was an early supporter, but the beers have changed a lot since then. They are one of the best ranges of beers I have tried. Oh and the 3 Ravens Juicy is probably my favourite beer to drink.
From the Czech town of Pilsen. It is a style of lager that is famous for pale malts, soft water, and spicy Saaz hops. Modern styles are often interchangeable with Lager.
Comes from the German Lagern meaning “to store”. Lager is fermented with different yeasts to Ales and is kept quite cool during the whole process. Therefore giving a beer that is soft, light, subtle, pure. Cold storage also allows for extra clarification and the cold storage (previously in ice caves!) is what the name refers to. Making good Lager is actually quite hard because any faults will be obvious. Great Lager is something to behold and unfortunately often overlooked in favour of the flavour bombs that IPA provide. A lot of Australia’s mainstream beers are bland Lager despite their names.
