Burial Beer Shadowclock Pilsner

What the brewers say

“The Pilsner is the almighty gift of time. Never filtered, the presence of hops provides an aroma suggestive of wildflower, honey, and lemon. Keep your palate clean; revel in your beverage.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pine—both freshly cut wood and needles. Slightly yeasty with moderate biscuit and bready malt aromas. Overall, it’s clean Pilsner malt with moderate sulfur and a low floral hops character.”

Flavor: “Malt-forward with bread, cracker, and biscuit notes. There’s an almost ‘peanut butter–like’ sweetness. Bitterness is slightly high, but it doesn’t linger, and it does help to cut the sweetness of the malt well. Floral hops notes carry into the finish. The carbonation makes it fluffy before giving way to the bitterness.”

Overall: “Pretty easy drinking. Starts sweet and finishes sweet. Just not enough hops-derived bitterness to cut through the malt presence.”
