3 week old keg served on draft at Lizardville Beer Store in Cleveland, OH.

Tipo Pils is a very hoppy, resinous pilsner with a slightly barn funk nose. Sticky lacing leaves the glass covered from top to bottom. Very forward grain/grassy profile as well. Given the freshness of the keg, the hops were flavorful and bright. The Italians rarely stick to the script and this is no exception. A truly unique take on a classic style. A+ for creativity. Luck enough to try this beer fresh so thanks to Lville for scoring this keg!

Pours a light straw color with a white meringue head. A bite of spice and flowers in the nose. Growler filled at The Birch.

Cracker flavor -- likely just straight up 100% pilsener malt in this one -- that is just a touch sweet and is super clean. No diacetyl, which is a high mark for style. A bit of body but not too much, keeping the mouthfeel relatively light. Crisp, clean, slightly grassy hop finish. Refreshing.

A good pilsener is hard to make and make right -- I know because I've tried at the homebrew level. But when successful, the pay off is well worth it. This is a great example of hitting the pils mark on all fronts; excellent representation of style. Amazing for warm weather or pairing with fleischsalat.

And I'm happy to see this is rated at least "Very Good" on BA. It is very good -- these higher scores are not just reserved for badass RISs that have been aged in bourbon barrels or DIPAs straight off the hop bine. Don't get me wrong -- a large portion of my favorite beers tend toward the heavier side. However, there is something to be said for beers that are made well regardless of style and I appreciate Birrificio Italiano's effort.
