Kai Draft Beer Pilsner Aroma and Taste
I can’t not review this beer but the first thing I did when I poured Kai Draft Beer Pilsner out was to take this picture and send it to some friends. They were aghast that this was a pilsner as, well do I really need to say, it looked nothing like one. Kai Draft Beer Pilsner appeared to have either been brewed with some iffy yeast or cross-contaminated with something from the wine brewery. I’m all for breweries trying something new, or tinkering with recipes to inject some life into a style of beer but with Kai Draft Beer Pilsner, Kai Draft Beer really have gone all out and then some. It had a pungent aroma of grape juice and some soured yeast in the mix too – nothing you want from a pilsner at the worst of time.
Perhaps I’m a glutton for punishment, or that Joe was unavailable for this beer review but waste not, want not. Kai Draft Beer Pilsner resembled something like a carbonated red wine that had been watered down with some caramel thrown in just to mix up the flavours a bit. There was a sourness to it that just didn’t belong in there. In all honesty, I’ve never completed pouring a beer away in the past but I couldn’t manage to finish more than half of it. Just let this review end.
