BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Smuttynose Brewing Company
New Hampshire, United States
smuttynose.com

Style: German Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Made for taking a break from the Sturm und Drang of modern life, this elegantly refreshing pilsner was created with German malt balanced with the spicy tang of Czech Saaz hops. The bread and biscuit flavors of the grain are topped with the floral character of the Noble hop, which may just get you to shimmy into your favorite lederhosen, bust into a quick schuhplattler and loudly proclaim, “Das ist Vunderbar!” Prost! 33 IBU (AKA - Short Batch #11)

Look - Overly cloudy for a pilsner.
Smell - Slight fruit aroma on the nose of which I have NEVER smelt (extremely good and unique)
Taste - Although the presence of pilsner is obvious, the addition of a pear-like essence tops this (in my opinion) as one of the BEST American style pilsners on the market! Beyond the achievement of Dogfish Head Brewing's Piercing Pils by far for pear addition.
Feel - As great as, if not better than, the taste.
Overall - Exquisitely crafted pilsner which both refreshes and satisfies the pallet!

Real nice refreshing beer. A light pilsner with bready and lemon hints. Great sessionable warm weather grilling beer.
