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.

This beer pours a hazy golden yellow color with a huge, fluffy off white head that sticks around forever as a rocky, one finger cap. There are hanging rings of lacing as well.

Smell is fruity, herbal, spicy and a touch of crackery malts and grains.

Taste is very similar with an herbal lemon tea flavor on the finish.

Feel is light and very drinkable. I just wish the finish was a bit more crisp.

Overall a good pilsner. Some of the flavors are a bit weird for the style, but I like it.

Pours hazy and yellow but brightly yellow with a cream colored head of foam that is tall and persists until the end of the beer. I pint so good I get to really drink it. Smells fruity with lots of spice. It is canned 33715 and these hops still entice the nose and smell bold. They show floral, fruit, spice and plenty of earth. Malt is underneath and firm, breaddy. Taste is generous with bread and hops but hops are exotic. Floral and fruity the also give plenty of spice and earth. It's soft overall and the bitterness is crisp. No diacetyl no dms, no alcohol on the nose or on the palate but as it approaches 6 percent you can see how the hops take a different place in the beer. The alcohol does give a bit of sweetness to the finish and the malt is round and firm and stays forward until the end. I liked this a lot. Mostly dry finish and pushes right up to IPA type hops on a pilsner malt style. Excellent.

Very good Pilsner. Only problem, is its expensive...and it's a Pilsner. There's not too many pilsners I've had that I prefer more than this one, only problem is that each one that I DID prefer more, was half the price, so no, I won't ever be buying this one again.
