Dust Bowl Hobo Pilsner

What the brewers say

“This German-style Pilsner uses 100 percent Pilsner malt along with Magnum and Opal hops to create a light-flavored, crisp, hoppy lager. Light malt flavors and grainy aroma are complemented by spicy and lemon-like hops notes. The finish is medium-dry with a pleasant, moderate bitterness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Very restrained, but welcoming. Spicy and fruity, mainly white pepper, orange, banana, and lemon. Pilsner malt is hard to pick out beneath the aggressive hops notes, though it does shine through on the retronasal.”

Flavor: “The hops character isn’t as pronounced as it is on the aroma. Clean Pilsner malt presents first with moderate citrus and a touch of peppercorn spice in tow. Balance is slightly bitter, which lingers into the dry finish pleasantly.”

Overall: “Complexly aromatic and dry-but-not-bitter beer that lets the malt shine as much as the complexity of the hops. Well-balanced with some unique sweet fruit notes.”
