FX Matt Brewing Utica Club

What the brewers say

“Utica Club is a premium Pilsener-lager made from the finest natural ingredients and aged to perfection. A timeless classic now celebrating more than seventy years in the pantheon of great American beers, UC was the first beer licensed for sale at the end of Prohibition and quickly grew to become a legend among beer lovers.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pleasant Pilsner notes of subtle hops spice and a touch of soft malt sweetness. A little sulfur, but fades quick. Moderate perfumy, floral, and sweet, spicy hops aromas. Clean bread and biscuit malt aromas.”

Flavor: “Simple clean malt profile with a delicate balance of floral and sweet, spicy hops flavors. Carbonation is pretty high, giving it a fluffy mouthfeel but also a fairly sharp carbonic bite. The finish is a bit sweet.”

Overall: “Solid beer. A fairly simple, clean easy-drinking light lager. Enough of each of the parts to work together, but no real standout characteristics. Nothing special about it, but not necessarily in a bad way. Maybe a touch over-carbonated. Right down the pipe for style.”
