Maui Brewing Pau Hana

What the brewers say

“European Pilsner malt offers sweetness balanced by a spicy hops profile.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Soft malt and slightly earthy and spicy hops notes. Sweet pear and fruity floral hops. Very slight inviting sweet perfume. Sweet toasty and biscuit malt aromas.”

Flavor: “Similar to the aroma, impressively clean, yet hits all the check marks one would look for in a classic Pilsner. Spicy and fruity floral hops flavors that balance well with a solid sweet biscuit malt backbone. The bitterness imparted by the hops really dries out the finish. A slight peppery phenolic-like flavor as it warms.”

Overall: “A deliciously light beer that is perfectly stripped down to exactly what it needs to be. An interesting contrast between a fairly sweet smelling and fairly dry and bitter drinking beer. The spice and dry finish contrast with the somewhat fruity aroma.”
