Firestone Walker Brewing Company Pivo Pils
What the brewers say
Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace. Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character. Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass.
What our panel thought
Aroma: Sweet, bready malt with a floral hop aroma. Hops are light in the aroma.
Flavor: Piney, grassy noble hops balanced by clean, grainy pils malt. Some fresh watermelon notes. Finishes crisp, clean, and surprisingly bitter. Some alcohol warmth at the end.
Overall: A delicate, but complex pilsner. Good balance of malt and hops. Lovely, refreshing, creative pils. Would pair well with chipotle-flavored popcorn. A very pilsner-y pilsner.
