Another LCBO grab bag selection and another pilsner style beer. The Pickup Truck Pilsner is brewed by the Thornbury Village Cidery and Brewery. I hadn’t tried any beer or cider by Thornbury prior to this surprise selection and didn’t really know anything about the brewery or their reputation.
The Pickup Truck Pilsner is brewed in the Czech pilsner style which has some overlapping characteristics with the German pilsner style – especially when those styles are interpreted by North American breweries.
The beer poured a light clear yellow with minimal short lived froth. The beer is a nice mixture of malt and traditional Czech style hops with both a grassy and spicy flavor. I enjoyed this and it would definitely be my preferred pick out of the two pilsners in the grab bag.
