A clear, bright gold, Low Life's pure white head reaches a finger and sits fluffy on top, fading after time to a creamy foam and depositing nicely thick patching as it goes.
The smell is soft but nice, very bright and clean, with plenty of Saaz hops, though it seems to be hopped more to the Czech than the German standard. Still, it's not too soft.
The taste is the same, with a gentle malty sweetness up front and a base consisting of floral and lightly herbal hops bitterness. Dryness from a grassier character comes out underneath.
Light, crisp and refreshing, as one would hope for with this style, it's nonetheless consistent and deep. The carbonation is a bit high, but it doesn't overwhelm too much.

12oz bottle, day 23 of the 2013 Craft Beer Advent calendar. Another brew from Evil Twin constructed in Stratford, CT.

This beer pours a hazy medium golden straw hue, with a teeming tower of (are we sure this wasn't brewed at DeProef?) rather puffy, thinly foamy, and ultimately frothy bone-white head, which leaves some decent (or not?) hanging garter belt lace around the glass as it slowly bleeds away.

It smells of prominent grassy, leafy hops, floral clover honey, grainy, slightly biscuity pale malt, and a subtle dry yeastiness. The taste is sharply bitter grassy, kind of metallic noble hops, gritty crackery pale malt, semi-tart lemon peel, a touch of flinty stoniness, and some weird additional natural sweet earthy tones.

The bubbles are, as already noted, big and overwrought out of the gate, and linger deeply until they eventually settle to a dull hum on the tongue, right at the point before another top-up is required, natch, the body on the light side of medium weight, and a tad too astringent from fizz and hop alike to be deemed anywhere near smooth. It finishes on a drying trend, the malt waning, while the acerbic hops and yeast gear up for a final run at my upper palate.

Well, what we have here is a German Pils, via Belgium's 'finest' yeastmeisters, spit out by a Danish recipe in coastal Connecticut. WTF? Globalization has its merits, as does collaboration and cooperation, but this all seems to be taking it all a step or ten too far, in concept marketing (our beer sucks, and all that), and in geography.

Poured two fingers of head on a clear, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is grain and pine. Mild but nice.
The taste has mild pine bitterness with some honey sweetness in the middle. Finishes with mild dry bitter note.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable. It's a little less bitter than most pilseners.

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller oversized wine glass (semi-proper!). Poured a hazy yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, fruit, spices, and grain. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, fruit, spice, grain, rye, and wheat. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. Upon first inspection of the nose on this one I really wasn’t expecting too much if I’m honest. There was a very substantial earthiness going on which was a little overwhelming. However, the flavor was a good bit better with a nice kiss of fruit taking place. This kept some of the earthiness at bay and helped to balance it out. Worth trying if you get the chance to do so.

Brewed by "Evil Twin Brewing, Stratford, CT" Bottled 8/22/13.

Pours to a thick white head and hazy (must be bottle conditioned) yellow color. Aroma is spicy, grassy and citrusy hops with a nice balance of sweet pale malt. Flavor is crisp, hoppy, grainy and balanced, with a sharp, dry finish. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is under control. Overall a very good Pils.

Evil Twin, now available in Arkansas.

Pours gold with a small, fading white head.
Delicate aroma, some spicy and herbal hops and cereal grains.
Flavours are the same - boring cereal grains and spicy hops, with little else to back things up.
Carbonation is too high.
Not impressive....
