Drake's Brewing Co. Flyway Pils

What the brewers say

“A North German–style pilsner made with premium pilsner malt, flaked maize, and a Noble-style American hop called Vanguard.”

What our panel thought

“Aroma of soapy herbal hops, doughy bread, faint fruit, bite of flint, touch of sulfur. Lightly toasted soup cracker in the flavor, mineral-laden. Full body. Could drink a lot but looking for more liveliness and bitterness.”

What our editors thought

“The nose is tame—light malt, gentlest herbal note. The body doesn’t stray far from that conservative approach, sacrificing character for a generic drinkability.”
