Good Word Brewing & Public House Die Todd Die
What the brewers say
Weyermann floor-malted bohemian Pilsner. Step mashed, and decocted. Spunded for natural carbonation.
What our panel thought
"Clean aromatics with a nice light malt presence and a touch of floral and perfume-like hops. Muted grassy nose with an odd malty sweetness. The bitterness is present early and often with a light grassy note enhancing the soapy and floral hop characteristics. Aggressive, sharp bitterness with a lingering vegetal flavor, almost celery-like. A touch of cracker-like malt attempts to ground things mid palate, but that sharp bitterness reemerges and lingers into the finish. Finishes astringent."
What our editors thought
"Pleasant sulphur fermentation note on the nose over a perceptibly sweet blossom aroma base—perhaps a touch TOO inviting bordering on candy? Bitterness pushes forward in the sip, both distant and strong, but a bit rough around the edges. It never quite feels as present and forward as I'd like it to."
