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.

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!

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Moderate amount of bubbles and about one finger of white head that settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A crisp and bready malt forward aroma with a scent of biscuit, cracker, and floral hops. Bready malt hints of biscuit, grains, cracker, and lager yeast. Floral and spicy Noble hops along with a little grass. Subtle fruit hints. A pretty solid Pils aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a bready and crisp malt driven taste with notes of biscuit, cracker, and floral hops. Pale malt with bready notes of biscuit, cracker, grains, straw, and lager yeast. Spicy and floral Noble hop notes. Also a little grass and subtle citrus. A solid balanced Pils taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, creamy, and fairly drying on the finish.

Overall: A pretty solid take on a Pilsner. Good balance of bready malt and spicy Euro hops.

Sampled last night on 8/26/15. Comes in a single 16 ounce can for around $3 or so from the Hy-Vee across the Missouri River in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in a tall 20 ounce weissber glass.

Brew pours a slight hazy apricot golden amber in color with a good 3-finger foamy wheat head that finally settles down to a 5mm layer after about 5 mins or so. Lots of sheet-like lacing is seen when sipped. Aroma is of floral hops and grains for the most part. More going on with the taste as there is also a hint of light spice and light fruits also. Does have a crisp, bitter and dry finish and lasted more than I like. Lighter to medium-bodied with good carbonation. Not a big fan of this one. Overall, it was a one time try for me though.

Evil Twin Low Life has a very thick, off-white head, a hazy (powdery sediment) apricot-orange-gold appearance, some bubble streams, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of tropical fruity hops and sweetness, and the flavor is of sweet, white bread, pale malt, tropical fruit pulp, and fairly strong hop bitterness at the end of the sip. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Evil Twin Low Life finishes mostly dry and mellow.

A pretty good, hop forward Pilsner. Lots of earthy, herbal hop bitterness, giving it a sort of bitter, tea-like quality. As it warmed, the black tea flavors really came out in the hops. A sweet malty backbone with a frothy white head. This one has a very creamy mouthfeel. Not your usual crisp Pilsner. I really enjoyed a pint of this and would have it again. Evil twin has never put out a bad beer, IMO.
