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


Three Taverns Prince of Pilsen

Aroma: “Citrus and pineapple. Rich tropical fruit–forward hops (mango and lychee) with hints of pepper. Some bread-like malt sweetness sits in the back.”

Flavor: “Light fruit and candy sugar up front, though not particularly sweet on the finish. There’s a nice lingering cracker dryness. And it’s slightly chewy. Tropical-fruit hops character comes across again, but balances nicely with the underlying beer. Not much bitterness, lingering fruity, earthy hops character.”

Overall: “Not your grandpappy’s Pils. Hazy IPA meets Pilsner: The hops are showcased with nice fruity notes of tropical fruit and citrus; the malt backbone is light and clean. It’s an interesting idea and fairly well executed. Tasty, refreshing, and certainly distinctive.”
