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 -5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
