Style: German Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A clever woman once said; ‘fair is foul and foul is fair’. On that note we threw in a young, unacknowledged hoppy pilsner gave it a limp, wrinkly flavor and finished it off with an insulting high price that will give you a foul feeling in your mouth. That’s why we name Evil Twin Brewing’s Low Life the Golddigger of Beers.

Evil Twin Brewing "Low Life"
1 pint can, coded "BATCH#035 14:08"
$3.49 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's quite hazy for a Pilsner, but hazy beers are in right now so I guess that's OK. I'm quite sure Germans would think differently. It also has a finger-thick head of rocky white above it, which is nice. It seems to be holding quite well. The aroma is pleasant, expressing floral and grassy hops and grainy malt, although there is some yeast there which I find distracting. There's some yeast in the flavor as well, though not nearly as distracting, partially because there's so much grainy malt there. It's fairly full for a Pilsner, but there's enough hop flavor that it's properly off-set, and a bold bitterness to balance it. The dry, bitter, and hoppy finish lingers. It's fairly aggressive, which is OK, but it's also not that refined. In the mouth it's medium bodied and gently crisp then smooth.

Poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a light yellow to copper color with a light almost transparency to it. Stiff one and a half finger's worth of white foamy head slid off at a moderate pace. Not much lace.
The aroma had a white bread to biscuit-like maltiness flowing over some grassy to spicy hops.
The flavor was slightly sweet with the spicy hops trying to make a decent play to come in underneath. Mild bready aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt on par. ABV felt as projected. Smooth bready finish.
Overall, pretty good pilsener that I could have again.

Poured into a pilsner glass: color is gold, hazy, not dense but not clear; head color is off white with small to medium size bubbles, presenting about 1/2+ inch thick then dissipating to a frothy 1/8 inch top.

Smell has a light crackery/biscuity malt component, but its overtaken by some spicier hops.

Taste is a little sweet, not too dry: flavor is neutral malt, I don't get much pilsen flavor; hops are bitter and moderately spicy. The beer flavor is good, but it does ring true to pilsner to me. There is some light esters and the stronger bitterness leans ale like beer.

Mouthfeel is on the sweeter side for pilsner but not bad; fairly solid bitterness on the sides of the tongue and cheeks.

Overall, a slightly different take on german pilsner style: a bit bitter, moderately sweet and neutral to sweet malt flavor. Lacking the dry, crisp punch of many others.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 16oz can into Pilsener glass. No date.

L: Hazy gold, finger width white head has average retention.

S: Grainy malts, some floral and herbal notes of hops.

T: Again, grainy malts, bready in a way. Grassy herbal hop is the majority but this also has a floral and fruity twist to it that is nice and refreshing.

F: Light, crisp, clean.

O: A very refreshing Pilsener and a very good beer too.
