It’s beer and it has a punny name. Winning all around! A friend recently gave me a LCBO craft grab bag which included four cans of beer, including a can of “Polly Want A Pilsner” by Hop City Brewing Company. I’ve previously tried Hop City’s Barking Squirrel Lager and their Hopbot IPA – it’s been awhile in both cases but I remember them being decent beers.
Polly Want A Pilsner is brewed in the German Pilsner style and poured a dull straw yellow colour with an inch or so of white froth, which dissipated pretty quickly. There’s a mild hop smell that carries over to the taste. The beer was on the medium bodied side of things but still smooth drinking. Basically it’s a well made albeit fairly typical North American brewed pilsner. I’d have it again.
