A-pours a murky golden straw color with a white sudsy head with good retention
S-grainy wheat aroma dominates with some grassy hops lingering in the background
T-wheat malt mixes with the grassy hops with a touch of lemon and some remnants if minerals
M-light bodied with high carbonation
O-not a bad brew, probably would have been better fresh. Not worth the price though

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.

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.

Had this on tap at Blackback in Waterbury. From notes.

A - Poured hazy golden with two fingers of soapy white head. Good lace rings and a half finger of retention.

S - Honey, sweet malt. Not much hop presence.

T - Sweet malt again, subtle hop character.

M - Good carbonation, light to medium body, refreshing finish.

O/D - A decent, clean pils. Nothing spectacular at all. Could use more hop character and complexity given the brewery. Wouldn't revisit but it was pleasant.
