Notes/Commercial Description:
A German-style pilsner that gets its name from the Emma Lazarus poem, "The New Colossus," where she describes her personal interpretation of the Statue of Liberty as the "Mother of Exiles." This beer has a spicy, slightly grassy flavor that kicks in mid-palate and continues on to a crisp, bitter finish. Being a lager-style beer, we gave it an extended cold aging period, which adds to its clean drinkability.

3.68/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

22oz bottle dated 5/15/13 poured into a pils glass
A: Pure yellow color with a 1/2-finger head and a steady stream of bubbles that makes this quite nice to look at
S: Grains, grass, yeast, spice. Light yet complex
T: Grassy & spicy throughout, bitter finish. Lacks the additional complexities found in the nose
M: Light-bodied, spicy, bitter
O: On one hand bolder than many pils with the bitterness but narrow because of the same. Needs a bit more malt to balance it

Serving type: bottle
