Modern Times - The Belmont Fermentorium Foamer Pils
What the brewers say
A pilsner with Barke and Gambrinus pilsner malts and a blend of Tettnang and Saaz hops.
What our panel thought
Compelling nose with herbal-peppery hops, floral notes, and slight minerality; grassy vegetal hints. On the palate, supportive but subdued malt sweetness, clean, but distracted by that grassy-vegetal character, which accentuates a dryness that seems to strip away nuance. Clean and crushable.
What our editors thought
Light herbal-cracker nose with a touch of tropical honey—engaging, despite incredible lightness. In the sip, that lightness hides nothing; over light malt, the slightly herbal, chalky bitterness is intense.
