Cloudburst Brewing Birthday Czech

What the brewers say

“Brewed for our anniversary, clean and simple and snappy.”

What our panel thought

“Pilsner malts takes center stage in the aroma, with herbal spicy hops in a supporting role. They trade places in the flavor, where the malt drops back significantly. There’s still enough to offer balance for the hop bitterness, but not enough to soften the edge. Seems connected to water—not as soft as it could be. Not Northern German pils bitterness, but still pronounced.”

What our editors thought

“Sweet floral nose with a crisp floral edge—light but structured. Malt in the sip feels a bit clunky.”
