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


Big Choice Pinhead Pilsner

Aroma: “Light fruitiness with a smattering of spice and pine in the hops. Warm, toasty, bready malt with a touch of caramel. Subtle lemon blends with the Continental malt sweetness. Aromas overall are subtle.”

Flavor: “Pleasant, unique hops flavor, with a mix of fresh grape, honeysuckle, and light spices. Some bitterness allows the other flavors to shine, but the hops are muted. A hint of toasty biscuit malt on the back end, but lingers with a residual sweetness that seems out of character.”

Overall: “This beer doesn’t break any Pilsner conventions, but it definitely tweaks them, with some fun and unique flavors that aren’t typically found in this style. A well-crafted delight, with clean maltiness and minimal hops bitterness. This session beer is easily drinkable on a summer day.”
