OPEN GATE PILSNER
A PILSNER STYLE BEER, WHICH ORIGINATED IN BOHEMIA FROM THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR STYLE OF BEERS IN THE WORLD. THIS VARIANT IS MORE HOP LED IN FLAVOUR FOR A ZINGIER, MORE CITRUS TASTE BUT STILL CONTAINS THAT BITTER, CRISP FINISH
OPEN GATE CITRA IPA
MODELLED ON THE USA WEST COAST STYLE OF IPA, BEERS NOT KNOWN FOR THEIR SUBTLETY BUT FOR BIG FLAVOURS. THIS BEER IS SOFTER BUT USES ALL AMERICAN, CITRUS HOPS, ESPECIALLY CITRA TO GIVE A POWERFUL, ORANGEY CITRUS FLAVOUR WITH SOME FLORAL NOTES AS WELL, BUT YET IT REMAINS HIGHLY DRINKABLE.
