I am somewhat confused about where this beer is brewed. According to the label it is brewed at the LWL-Freilichtmuseum Hagen, but this is at the same adress as Privatbrauerei Schwelm.
This beer is a pilsner that is handcrafted and is bottle conditioned. Never seen a pils with yeast in it before.

It pours a murky, orange golden color with a big bubbly head that leaves lacing on the bottle.

Smell is hoppy with some rough edges of raw hops, probably a Hallertau hop, that also gives some light spicy notes. It almost smells like lemongrass. The malt is light dextrinous and has a straw-like smell. Smell is sweet and has wort-like notes. The yeast gives a light autolized smell, but the bottle was a bit overdue.

Taste is malty that is light like a true pilsner should be. A whiff of grain, husk and straw lay down the fundament for the great German hoppiness, subtle with a rough edge. Must be a Hallertau. Body is very light which makes the beer really drinkable. Aftertaste is dry and bitter, with the yeast giving the beer a light stock taste.
