What the brewers say

“A North German–style Pilsner, which is distinctive in its high hopping rates and clean, dry body. We combine extra premium pale German Pilsner malt with a most American ingredient, flaked corn, which dries the body out, and we hop it with the noble-style American hops Vanguard. The beer displays a nice spiciness with a subtle fruited note and finishes clean and dry.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fantastic, strong noble hops aroma with spice and floral character with a rich underlying bready sweetness and a little lemon citrus in the background.”

Flavor: “Simple malt, bready with a lingering grainy sweetness that has a somewhat tannic lingering astringency. Strong floral hops character with hints of rose and a grassy note on the finish. Bitterness is fairly restrained and nicely balanced.”

Overall: “A really pleasant and interesting Pilsner. A great showcase of the ingredients and process. Enough malt to be present, but enough noble hops characteristic to stand up and be noticed as well.”
