Maplewood Pulaski Pils

What the brewers say

“This Chicago-style Pils was brewed with Pilsner and Vienna malt, which results in a rich malty flavor. We add Santiam hops, which possess both European and American lineage, for floral notes and a bit of spice. Together these ingredients create an exceedingly drinkable and balanced Pilsner, properly lagered for your pleasure.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Rising pizza dough, noble hops character—sweet, light floral, and earthy, wet forest. Low sulfur.”

Flavor: “Delicate malt flavors, light matzo-cracker notes, sweet biscuit and bread flavors that are cut through by moderate floral hops bitterness. Low sulfur, as on aroma. Slight lemon flavor that grows through the finish. Bitterness doesn’t linger.”

Overall: “A clean, easy-drinking beer with a really nice finish. The carbonation is spot on. Perfectly crisp and balanced. This beer is nuanced enough that it could be dissected and over analyzed but is good enough just to be enjoyed. Nice job!”
