Highland Brewing Pilsner

What the brewers say

“A finely nuanced Pilsner features German Hallertau Blanc hops and three other Hallertau region varietals: Saphir, Perle, and Hersbrucker hops add notes of stone fruit, pepper, and lush grass to the German Pilsner malt body. Cold fermented with lager yeast for a crisp, dry finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Delicate malt notes with just a hint of geranium that leads into well-blended floral and citrus hops notes. Orange, lemon, and orange zest.”

Flavor: “Pronounced malt notes, graham crackers, light bread crust, sweet Pilsner malt character. Some peppery hops notes with complementing generic floral notes. Bitterness is a little restrained for the amount of malt sweetness, making it slightly off- balance for the style. Finish is clean and carries a hint of sweetness to cut the crispness.”

Overall: “Really nice beer. The balance of citrus sweetness with the crisp Pilsner malt is well executed. Order another!”
