Night Shift Brewing Pfaffenheck

What the brewers say

“Bright, traditional Pilsner. Floor-malted German grain delivers soft notes of honey and biscuit balanced by a floral, zesty hops profile.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sweet biscuit and bready malt play a supporting role. Moderate fruity floral and tropical hops aromas with a slight sweet spice, almost marmalade-like.”

Flavor: “More malt character than most Pilsners, with a prominent biscuit note and a touch of bread crust. Hops bitterness is pronounced and lingers, which mutes any hops flavors, but some pine and cattiness come through. Finish is slightly sweet and malty for the style, but there’s also a grainy bite to balance.”

Overall: “Clean and easy-drinking, fairly well-balanced beer. Enough sweet malt aspects and floral/spicy hops characteristics to satisfy either end of the palate perspective.”
