What the brewers say

“We import bagged German Pilsner malt and add 3,300 pounds to each batch because we believe that’s what it takes to make a great German Pilsner. We source all Hallertau Hersbrucker hops, for their mix of floral and ‘Noble’ notes.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A prominent sulfur note surrounds all other aromas but is not unpleasant. Some light spice and floral characters, along with an earthy, woody hops aroma. A little musty, like a root cellar, along with some almost copper-like minerality.”

Flavor: “A nice, delicate sweet biscuit malt profile that complements the hops bitterness. Some light minerality adds a bit of complexity that highlights the malt character, with some earthy and musty notes. The carbonation helps open up the hops, allowing the flavors to stay on the tongue with a crisp, welcoming feel.”

Overall: “A well-crafted, well-executed beer that stays true to tradition while adding some small twists to keep it feeling new. Crisp and simple, with the blend of bitter and biscuit. Very pleasant to the palate and invites a second glass.”
