Pinthouse Pizza Magical Pils
What the brewers say
German-style keller-pils brewed with heirloom pilsner malt and Loral hops.
What our panel thought
German purists beware! Nose of fresh, bright orange, lemon, and grapefruit, with notes of pine and herbal tea. Reminiscent of session IPA. Zesty flavor with bright hop notes, blueberry clashing with lime. Crisp but sweet malt body, finishing dry. Super unique, fun, interesting.
What our editors thought
Lemony-herbal nose, fresh and bright. In the sip, big lemon notes and a present bitterness mingle with herbal notes for an Arnold Palmer-like tea-lemonade blend. An outlier, on the farther end of the creative spectrum, it hits a drinkable balance.
