Genesee Brewing Company Pilsner

What the brewers say

“A crisp, exceptionally clean beer prominently featuring Noble German hops and the finest Pilsner malt. This medium-bodied lager releases subtle, bready malt flavors and aromas that are balanced by intense, yet pleasant, hops bitterness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate hops aroma that’s a little lush and perfumy, with quiet notes of fruits and flowers—like an early spring morning. Initially, some light yeast esters of pear and apple, complemented by the bread-crust malt.”

Flavor: “The bready, biscuit maltiness up front is more prominent than in some Pilsners and combines well with the lemony hops bitterness. Fruity, floral, earthy notes, and a moderate alcohol warmth to add a slightly spicy taste. Well-balanced and inviting.”

Overall: “The alcohol is a bit overdone, but the general balance is nice otherwise. The bitterness lasts for a while, without giving a harsh edge. Perfect after a hard day working or playing in the heat.”
