Top 10 beers in the world media2nd April, 2014 by Lauren Eads
Windsor & Eton Republika
Will Hawkes, writing in The Independent, picked out a few of his favourite pilsner beers, which he says is a style which is “on its way back”.
He said: “Pilsners might not offer the same bang for your buck as IPAs, but as session beers they’re very hard to beat. Only the best cask ales are in the same class.
Of this selection he said: “And then there’s Windsor & Eton’s Republika, which is perhaps the closest any British brewer has come to replicating Czech-quality Pilsner. Given that it was brewed in collaboration with Czech brewer Tomas Mikulica, that’s no surprise – and you don’t have to squeeze into an East End booze den to drink it, either.
He added: “This clean, crisp Pilsner is perfect now the sun is here (ahem).”
