Daigo Pilsner Aroma and Taste
Daigo Pilsner poured out a hazy golden colour with minimal amount of head on top – nothing like the store bought macro beers that are out there – and it was disappointing to see such a limp looking beer. What little head there was appeared to be a ring of bubbles on top that quickly popped. At the aroma made up for it, with a sharp biscuit and cereal aroma covering up some citrus aroma once it had warmed up.
The body was more of the same of the aroma – nothing evolutionary or revolutionary with Daigo Pilsner. It did exactly what it was supposed to do which was satiate my thirst with a crisp malty bite and a hint of hoppy bitterness that faded fast. There was a slight citrus edge to the beer as well, though it was fleeting and I couldn’t quite pin it down on whether my brain was imagining it or if it was real.
Daigo Pilsner The Bottom Line
Daigo Pilsner is a bog-standard craft beer pilsner – not much better than the macros out there, especially for the price it is.
