MadTree Brewing Legendary Lager
What the brewers say
Balances the line between a craft pilsner and macro American lager.
What our panel thought
Brilliantly clear; tight, fluffy white head. Delicate aroma—notes of bread crust, flowery hop, chamomile, pine, and light but pure malt sweetness. Firm but refreshing bitterness plays well with malty sweetness; round flavor. Elegant, spritzy, structured. Leans dry and bitter. Begs another sip.
What our editors thought
Subtle citrus and pine notes in the nose feel vaguely like PNW hops, while remaining convincingly within Euro parameters for pilsner. The sip bends a bit more sweet than crisp, but the zippy carbonation and light citrusy bitterness offer pleasant balance.
