In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Schlafly Pilsner

Aroma: “Moderate floral and spicy hops aromas, slightly perfume-like. A touch of sulfur dances on top of the Pilsner malt backbone. There’s a touch of lemon and orange character on retronasal.”

Flavor: “Malt sweetness hits up front with biscuity character. Medium body is nice and holds up the beer well. A little lemon. Some soft floral notes and spice add complexity. Low on bitterness, but enough to balance the sweetness. Restrained bitterness lets the malt and hops flavor complexity linger on the finish.”

Overall: “Clean, easy-drinking beer with a nice balance of noble hops and malt complexity. Crisp, almost effervescent, mouthfeel.”
