Transmitter Brewing NY6 Pilsner
What the brewers say
"NY6 is a 100 percent New York State,ingredient German-style Pilsner."
What our panel thought
"Herbal, tea-like hops aroma with an almost smoky character. Nice light malt sweetness. The finish is quite bitter with an aggressive tannic quality that reinforces the comparison to green tea."
What our editors thought
"An ester- and phenol-filled saison-like smoky nose is a head-scratcher for a beer that purports to be a Pilsner. Light fruit on the sip and minimal malt further the fermentation-forward effect, which while drinkable and enjoyable may not be what those accustomed to Pilsner are seeking."
