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.

Bottle poured into pilsner glass

12 oz bottle was poured into a pilsner glass.

A one finger white foamy head. Clear, light golden yellow with a few streams of bubbles. A few lacings on the way down.

Aroma of Bread and grass

Taste bread, grass, herbs.

Very light bodied, slight bitterness at back of tongue on the sip, clean finish. No aftertaste . Dry.

A light pilsner. Clean, crisp and more flavorful than LITE. Good beer but I prefer something were more heft.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super tight lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Pilsner malts give a bready, toasted, and sweet aroma with lager yeast, herbal, and grassy notes.

Taste: Same as above. Nice pilsner.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, light bodied, medium to high carbonation, chewy, and a little dry.

Overall: A nice twist on the style. All traditional characteristics are there and enjoyable.

Light yellow, slight haze, bright white collar with some stickage. Fruity, citrusy nose, mild malt character. Moderate bitterness (stronger in the finish), a bit citrusy and herbal, solid malt base. Medium/light bodied, moderate carbonation, decent texture. Pretty good mix of characters -- dry hopping was a good call.

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

Poured crystal clear yellow color with bubbles racing up the middle and a big snow white 2 finer foamy head that faded very slowly and left really good sticky foamy lacing with rings coating the sides.

Smells of citrus hops, lemon zest, buttered biscuit, caramel, hay, fresh cut grass and some yeast or bready notes; hops are stronger than normal and very enjoyable, odor is well above average for a pilsner.

Tastes like it smells, with citrus hops, lemon, hay, fresh cut grass and mild hop spices, but then the malty sweetness takes control with the flavors of biscuit, caramel, yeast and lightly roasted grains; tastes less hoppy, but the balance is even and works well for this style.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with mild fizzy carbonation, a light to medium body, and a slightly bitter finish that is close to clean.

Overall a very good refreshing pilsner that would make for an excellent session beer. More hops in the nose and flavor than most other pilsner beers, this one is worth checking out.
