Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Traditional in concept with a Two Roads twist…dry hops. We use a combination of classic German as well as American hop and malt varieties in our Pils. We renovated a 100 year-old factory building and designed this Pils to have “extra” aroma…so, pardon the pun! Crisp…refreshing…refined.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle.

Mostly clear lemon straw body. Two fingers of rockyish eggshell white head. Nice lacing and retention. Fresh nose, with some nice pungent hop aromas. Slightly resinous and spicy. Cookie and biscuit malt in the background.

Peppery, resinous hop bitterness up front. Spicy, noble hop flavors preside over soft, bready, cookie-ish malt. Light sweetness, but the dry, spicy hop bitterness dominates, thankfully. Moderate body with a lively, refreshing feel. A very nice addition to the CT beer scene. Will be buying more of this as the weather gets warmer.

Awesome caramel golden sips, visable carbonation, not too heady

Smells crisp and flavorful,definately a dry hopped brew

Tastes as good as it smells. The scent of this brew will not fail... such a fully dry hopped beautifully carbonated beer. Dry hopping the German hops really gave this beer an interesting, flavorful spin.
Crrisp as well as refreshing... everything you'd want from your pilsner+ a little more :)

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a light, clear brassy hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light grainy pilsner malt with a light herbal hop.

The taste consisted of a soft grainy sweetness with a faint herbal hop. A touch of diactyl detected as well.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty, subtle pilsner.

Serving type: on-tap

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving patches of bubbles on the surface, a thin ring around the edge of the glass, and some lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is also dominated by flavors of grassy hops, which contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness, and also has underlying notes of bready malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this to be an enjoyable American version of a German-styled beer. It tasted a little hoppier compared to other beers in the German Pilsener style and the hop aromas and flavors seemed more resembling that of a Munich Helles Lager.

Appearence. Yellow, very bubbly, thin white head

Smell: very mild bread yeast, Lacked the dankness of lower quality beers.

Taste: the appearance, smell and taste could all be called those of a refined pilsner. Smooth, yeasty lager taste, but complimented with wonderful hopy bitterness and floral notes, that make this beer worlds apart from others of its category

mouthfeel: crisp, bubbly, light/ medium body.

Overall: stands out as a very good beer in a category in which very good is uncommon. If you are a picky beer drinker, but you need a break from IPA'S and stouts, and its warm outside, buy this beer.
