Figueroa Mountain Paradise Rd Pilsner

What the brewers say

“This Pilsner derives all of its character from the delicate balance of malt sweetness and hops bitterness. Medium-bodied and malt-forward, the flavor of is reminiscent of honeysuckle and fields of grain with a soft background of hops aroma.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Skunky, slightly dank hops hit hard. Underneath, I sense some spicy hops character, so it has that retro-Euro, green-bottle import feel. Floral aroma, with apple/pear blossoms with a sulfur tone. Very traditional, almost to a fault.”

Flavor: “The skunky hops flavor is in your face, coupled with a touch of sweet malt. A low-level pleasant bitterness, but the flavors are mild. Fruitiness of fresh apples/pears with a low level of clean maltiness. All the flavors are fairly intense on their own, but together there is some balance.”

Overall: “This reminds me of drinking Heineken and Carlsberg, back in the day. This is your father’s lager. The fruitiness is welcoming. An intensely traditional beer that dials up the more subtle, classical flavors of style.”
