Twin Barns Brewing Company Belknap Pils

What the brewers say

“Traditional German pils brewed with Saaz, Hallertau Mittlefruh, and German malt.”

What our panel thought

“Spicy herbal hops and a hint of piecrust malt come together for an inviting aroma. Clean, floral, and perfume-like aromatics are balanced by a hint of malt and create a pleasant and inviting nose. Cracker and lightly grainy malt notes serve as a perfect canvas to both balance and showcase the floral and soapy hop bitterness. That bitterness, while distinct and present, is sufficiently restrained allowing for a near-perfect balance. The flavor develops the hops character nicely, adding a little more detail with some light floral notes. There’s enough clean malt to balance the crisp bitterness, without cloying or softening the finish. Hops flavor and bitterness last into the dry and taut finish—clean and refreshing with just a hint of lingering bitterness.”

What our editors thought

“The nose is a beautiful nexus of faint purple flowers and light herbal spice, with glimpses of malt peeking around the edges. The flavor dives into floral-herbal bitterness headfirst, but with a smoothly polished edge that gives it a natural effortless feel. Remarkably balanced.”
