Smith & Lentz Brewing German Pils
What the brewers say
Snappy and noble.
What our panel thought
Gentile, almost shy aroma; subtle floral hops, a touch of red apple. Slight sulfur adds German character. Bread-crust malt carries the flavor, rather abruptly giving way to bold Noble hop expression. Finishes crisp and dry.
What our editors thought
Fragrant nose with floral, sweet tropical-fruit notes of papaya and mango. In the sip, a square-edged bitterness with slight herbal drying character blocks and tackles faint malt, leaving light floral and tropical notes to linger.
