In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Dust Bowl Hobo Pilsner

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.”
