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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

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.
