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.

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.

Crisp, Grainy, Hoppy, Bready

Bright golden, with a massive creamy head and a deep, grainy nose. Very crisp with prickly carbonation. The aroma is floral with a soft hoppiness, a bit of rind, browned apple and herbal spice. Light sweetness with a dry, bready finish and biscuity grain linger. Low Life isn't what you'd expect from a Pils. Refreshingly odd and hoppy.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #110 (March 2016).

I really dont get the pandering irony of the brewer's description. But I liked this better than I thought and worlds better than Bikini.

A- Tall boy delivers a hazy light golden pilsner brew into a wine glass. The head is white, frothy and retains well. Large sheet of lace glaze.

S- Pilsner profile, with more herbal and spicy hops lending a top to the the pale malt tones of white bread and cracker. A bit grassy and pale fruits.

T- The hops gain traction on the palate - grassy, herbal and spicy. Hints of pale fruit, like grape, cereal grains and bready cracker. Balanced. Good food beer - tonight with sushi.

F - Light bodied and crisp. Sprightly carbonation.

A solid pilsner, a notch below Sit Down Son or Yacht.

from a can to a pilsner glass
look; pale yellow sunburst, a hint of reddish orange towards the center, very bubbly. 1" white head that fades and leaves a thin covering and lacing
smell; herbal hops, yeasty, a little grassy, a little fruity, hint of honey malt and noble hops
taste; herbal tea, herbal hops, hint of classic noble hops and pilsner malt, a little grass, a little sugar, pretty good combination
feel; carbonated but smooth, a little malty, medium bodied feel which isn't heavy but feels a little heavier than it tastes
overall; very nice, drinkable, interesting, i like their descriptions on their bottles and cans, a must read.

Intensely curious, as far as German pilsners go--here's a beer that's far from crystal clear and whose hopping seems far from noble (and far from subtle)--and yet also very tasty, blending as it does some feature characteristics of the pilsner style (a nice crispness, a bready, biscuity malt backbone and some vegetal, noble hopping) with some new-wave pizazz in the form of that delicious citrus hopping, lighter carbonation, and a really tasty hop presence.

12 oz bottle poured. Pours a golden color with a thin fizz head. Grain, corn and hints of fruit on the aroma. Flavor matches closely with some hops that come in late. Grainy linger. Easy drinking. Pretty good.

A big thanks to woodychandler, whose large package I received just before I left PA for the winter is still being sampled. This is one of those beers. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, light sweetness. Taste is malts, grains, some floral hops, touch of sweetness, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing beer.
