Pale, sessionable and cool fermented using a Kölsch yeast for a dry, lageresque finish. A secondary fermentation with zingy lemon juice & zesty zest, plus a cheeky wee dry-hop basically makes this a thirst-quenching, lip-smacking, lemon shandy. Type thing.
Pilot was born when Matt Johnson and Patrick Jones met while studying for masters degrees in Brewing & Distilling at Heriot-Watt University in 2012, and it’s still just the two of us. A shared view that there was something different to be done in brewing – not traditional real ales, but not just another U.S. craft beer clone either – led to home-brewing together, which eventually led to buying a second-hand brewhouse and moving to the heart of cosmopolitan Leith, commencing brewing right at the end of 2013.
