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.

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.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a flute glass at the Iron Abbey in Willow Grove, PA. The appearance is a hazy golden orange with a moderate sized white head. The aroma is full of malt with some biscuit and hops added for fun. The flavor is big on malt and bread, a really nice flavor. Overall, a really good beer.

A little more hops than most pilsners that I have had as well as a little more carbonation. Both work for me. Very drinkable but nothing that makes it stand out as special.

Poured from a 16 ounce can into a Nonic pint glass yields four and one half fingers of white head that really lasts. Lightly hazed gold color. Lacing is plentiful.
Smell is grassy herbal hops with a dab of Pilsner malt.
Taste is grassy herbal hops of the noble type. Some bread crust malts but buried under the hops.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation and a crisp bitter finish.
Overall an easy drinking Pilsner with just a slightly higher hop level than that famous Czech Pilsner.
Good job E.T. Would I buy it again? If I'm in the mood for a nice Pilsner yes!
