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.

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.

3.5/5  rDev -5.7%

Appearance: minimal head, low carbonation, gold in color, clear

Smell: earthy hops and grain

Taste: grain, grass, toasted malt, and citrus hop smack at the end

Mouthfeel: sweet start with a bitter middle and a more bitter smack at the end, medium-light carbonation, medium-light bodied

Overall: An above average hoppy but not overly hoppy German pils. If I am in the mood for the style, I would certainly get this. The dry hopping adds a refreshing element. That said there are others in the style I would get first.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours very clear bright gold. Thick half inch of white foam. Nose is light pilsy bitter. German style. Clean open firm hop that balances out. Nice blend, with a notch higher bitter than a typical pils. Crisp finish. Some citrus. Very good.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Clear pale gold in the glass with a big frothy white head that is lacing a lot. The smell is a bit faint but of pale malts and spicy hops. This beer is described as a dry hopped pilsner and that seems evident by the fresh hop bite in the taste which is actually much more noticeable than I was expecting. Noble hops provide much of the base which is appropriate for the style, bitterness and hop flavor is a bit higher than normal but in a good way. The base of this beer is a pale malt providing a fresh bread taste and mouthfeel. The yeasts provide a typical lager profile mostly clean but with a touch of spice. This beer is quite lively as the result of a good dose of carbonation and the tingly hop bitterness. The finish is pretty clean with just a hint of the pale malt and slightly bigger hit of hoppy spice and bitterness hanging around. Overall I'm pleasantly surprised. This is a good example of an often overlooked style perhaps updated a bit with the extra dose of hops. This brewery happens to just a short drive from where I live so I'm excited that it looks like I'll have a good local brewer to support, something that there are too few of in CT.
