Hopworks Urban Brewery HUB Lager

What the brewers say

“Our Northwest-style Pilsner is all malt all the time. Spicy and herbal notes from organic Perle hops balance the delicate honey flavor from organic 2-row and light caramel malts. This golden lager is dry and refreshing with surprising depth of character.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A very subdued delicate blossom scent, as if standing under an apple tree, with just hints of sulfur and hops spice. A hint of toasty malt, with a slight earthy aroma develops as it warms.”

Flavor: “The first sip brings out the bready malt, with a touch of hops flavor that yields to the bitterness. Light nuttiness that might be a bit out of place, as well as some fresh fruitiness. Subsequent sips see the hops flavors build in complexity—spicy, with a big of evergreen pine. Some lingering bitterness in the aftertaste, clean fermentation.”

Overall: “The pleasant bitter blends well with the subtle malt. There are some fruit tones that are very delicate, reminiscent of apple blossoms. A good Pilsner that stays pretty well within the lines of convention. Easy drinking, and each sip tastes fresh.”
